Kinghorne Street in Nowra is full of lovely shops and little cafes with the best being The Deli. It is Sydney cool, without the attitude. The interior is full of recycled wood and exposed light bulbs – giving it the industrial chic feel.
The food is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. They make all of their tarts, cakes, muffins, pies and salads in house, as well as baking bread daily. They stock Italian smallgoods and local cheeses as well as their own range of preserves and sauces.
The Deli opens at 6.30am every day. So you can stop by for some excellent coffee (the beans are from Daily Grind Coffee Co in Gerringong) and breakfast items such as Porridge served with Caramelised Apples, Brown Sugar, Toasted Almonds and Double Cream or an Omelette with Spiced Italian Sausage, Cherry Tomatoes and Persian Fetta will no doubt tickle your taste buds.
Lunch time staples include Soup of the Day, House Made Pies or a Deli Ploughmans which includes Burrawang Ham, Traditional Pork Pie, Cheese, House Made Pickled Vegetables, Bread & Relish. Make sure you also include a freshly squeezed juice.
The staff at Deli on Kinghorne are very welcoming. Service was fast and efficient and they were so very sweet with our little ones, adding a sprinkle of fairy dust (icing sugar) to their muffins and serving up 2 marshmallows with their extra frothy babycino.
Deli on Kinghorne in Nowra is approximately a 2 hour drive from Sydney. So it is perfect for a break on your trip south. Forget the fast food joints on the Princes Highway and take a detour to refuel your body and mind with delicious coffee and food at the coolest spot in town - The Deli.
