Enjoy the perfect view from this hidden gem
Don't be fooled by the looks of this hidden gem, located at the north end of Christies Beach Esplanade. Ripple & Swirl is definitely worth the short walk past the surf lifesaving club.

With a view worth taking considerably more time to choose from the family friendly menu, this small beachside cafe offers a wide range of food at reasonable prices. There is a full all day breakfast menu, with eggs whichever way you could possibly think of, croissants, toast varieties, sharing starters and meals, burgers and wraps, salads and mains and a choice of kids meals.

They also do many items for take away.

So much to choose from...

When visiting, we had a latte (hit the spot!) and Big Breakfast to share, and boy am I glad we did! It was a seriously generous portion and it was like the breakfast that kept on giving, under layers of eggs, bacon and Turkish bread. The service was quick and the team happily engaged in friendly conversation that made it even more enjoyable.

When you walk inside this café, you know you're at the beach. The décor gives that seaside feel, with a wooden touch to its surroundings and also the simple touches such as a nautical display of peace, love and burgers!

Lovely little cafe just down the road. And a million dollar view that some people would die for - quite underestimated I think.
