Relax in front of one of Darwin's greatest views
A brand new venue has been added to the list that indicates Darwin's exploding food scene. The Foreshore Restaurant and Cafe, on the seafront at Nightcliff, has been much anticipated, and not without controversy, but is already proving a hit with joggers, swimmers, families and others wanting to relax in front of one of Darwin's greatest views.

Foreshore Cafe

You can choose to sit inside the air-conditioned cafe or outside on beanbags and crates. Either way you'll get to enjoy the view.

The cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7am till 10pm daily.The menu offers healthy, fresh, Australian food and produce with dietary and gluten free options available. Australian seafood dishes are also offered according to seasonal availability.


My recent vist to The Foreshore Cafe was at breakfast time and my menu choices included house-made meusli, fruit salad and yoghurt, pancakes, avocado smash and a variety of egg dishes. The breakfast salad sounded appealing to me; a baguette, two poached eggs, cherry tomatoes and crispy prosciutto with a parmesan and balsamic glaze.

After some deliberation I decided on a Croque Madame from the specials board. I noticed some reasonable wines on the drinks menu but, since it was breakfast time, decided on a fresh juice made from beetroot, carrot, celery, apple and ginger.

I enjoyed my indulgent croque madame and the juice was okay but could have done with a bit more ginger for extra zing.

I noticed the sweets which included traditional and raw cakes and a selection of ice cream and gelato flavours. I'll choose between them when I go back to try out the coffee.

Take away meals, drinks and snacks can also be ordered, an ideal option if you're heading for the Nightcliff rocks to watch the sunset.
