That New Coffee Shop

So welcoming, so delicious, so awesome
If you're ever in Ballina either for holidays, a day trip, a weekend escape or even just passing through, then don't forget to stop by That New Coffee Shop for a bite to eat or a refreshing coffee.

This place was cosy, beautiful and friendly. It literally felt like my own dining room (except way nicer) and the service was fantastic as well. Its interior decor consisted of various different things making this cafe so inviting, warm and relaxing. They had a ladder hanging from the ceiling with little bird cages hang from it; decoupage coffee tables with wooden chairs to match; all sorts of candle holders scattered around the cosy dining room; and if you are worried about the comfortableness of wooden chairs then there are also big arm chairs available for you to chill out on. I had my eye on the chest used as a coffee table, which I just wanted to take home. It certainly felt like walking into a shop selling furniture and homewares, but I absolutely loved the creativity and imagination the owners have put in to furnish this place.

So my husband and I walked in to this place tucked away on a side street in the city centre and were greeted by the friendly waitress. As we were both thirsty for our first coffee of the day, we ordered our coffees straightaway before studying the menu.

From memory, it had various breakfast options and some lunch selections were available as well. We decided on the big breakfast for my husband and the chicken salad for me. I thought it was good that some of their lunch options were available so early in the morning.

I must say the coffee was pretty average. I mean it was definitely a step up from our daily instant coffees, but there were no sighs of "ahh that's a good coffee" from either of us upon our first sip. The food, on the other hand, was brilliant. You can't really ask for more than fresh ingredients and fantastic flavours for your first meal of the day.

If I were around the area again, I would pay a visit to this lovely coffee shop. It would be perfect for any occasion: a quiet morning coffee, a nice get-together with some friends or family, or even a mid-morning coffee with a nice book. So you should pay a visit too!
