Located across the road from Narrabeen Beach is Oceans Narrabeen. With its expansive front open windows and just a stone's throw from the beach, you can't help but inhale the endless fresh ocean breeze revitalising your lungs and spirits.

Opening 1 December 2014, this cafe has already become a local favourite. It's the first venture for husband and wife team, Carlie and Jeremy Maudson. Both have put all their love and effort into creating the perfect seaside eatery for locals and visitors. Jeremy is a talented builder and has put some thought into what materials to use and in some areas he has managed to use recycled timber found at railways to create some uber cool finishes.



Embracing a beach shack chic design aesthetic, the interior also has some elements of retro industrial design with bare metal ceiling pipes, timber beams, brick facing and the popular exposed edison bulbs. Lots of brick and timber warm this open space and really suit the open air venue.



You can choose to sit outside on a bench watching the world go by or gaze across the road and catch a glimpse of the ocean.



Inside there is a feature wall of bricks and artwork adding some texture and colour to the airy space. There's plenty of seating choice with a few low table settings and also high timber benches edging along the open windows. The benches overlook the street out to the beach, which is ideal for larger groups or for having a few drinks.

.



Since opening in December, Oceans continues to delight its fans with simple well executed food and cheerful service. Menus cover breakfast, lunch, afternoon and dinner sessions with a focus on healthy and tasteful ingredients in large or smaller portions to suite any appetite.

You can walk in off the beach and grab some quick pre-made meals, order some take away or pull up a chair.



As I only had limited time when visiting, I ordered a quick Thai Noodle Salad and a creamy Mango Smoothie for lunch.

Things to do and places to see


If you don't want to swim in the surf, you can walk on the endless sandy beach as far as Manly or further north up through the bush tracks past Warriewood to Mona Vale beach. There is also a wonderful lagoon for the kids to go swimming or fishing in right off the beach, just a 5 minute walk from this cafe.

Narrabeen Lagoon


Further across the lagoon is Narrabeen Lakes, home to boatie and kayak lovers with an amazing Lakeside Bush trail for walking or cycling that winds around the Narrabeen Lake as far as Cromer. Soon the bush trail will completely surround the lake past Cromer to Oxford Falls back down along Wakehurst to Narrabeen. Not forgetting Narrabeen has many other great cafes, restaurants and shops to explore, so it is well worth a day visit or even make a whole weekend of it. You can stay at the nearby Sands Hotel or at the Sydney Lakeside Holiday park in a caravan for the night if you want more casual accomodation.

So come down to Narrabeen check out the new Oceans and enjoy.

We went there today, the seared tuna tacos were divine as was the seared tuna salad. Great place, great food, great vibe. We will be back.
