Get to The Pocket at Moffat
The Pocket at Moffat. It has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Well it should, because The Pocket Espresso Bar in the heart of Moffat Beach is something you should be aware of. This trendy little cafe is something you would expect to find in a busy CBD, not within earshot of a beautiful Sunshine Coast beach. It's a welcome addition to the area and it's already proving popular with locals and the tourists who stumble across it.
Be sure to keep an eye out for The Pocket on Seaview Tce - I almost walked by it when looking for it. Inside you'll find a cosy, trendy venue. The staff were cool, very friendly and helpful. I loved the way they have done up the joint - it's got a great attitude and fits in well with the local culture.
A peak inside The Pocket and its welcoming culture
The coffee itself was amazing. My cappuccino not only looked great but tasted fantastic. I only opted for the small ($3.90) which was unfortunate - I'll be going for the large ($4.90) next time. It had a beautiful taste. My coffee companion went with a soy milk latte and gave me similar feedback. We both wanted more. There was also a small selection of food, real simple yet filling stuff. They had sandwiches ($9), toasties ($8.50) and kids' toasties ($6.50).
Grab a seat outside and enjoy that Moffat Beach atmosphere
There was plenty to look at both indoors and out. They have some great artwork and some nifty nic nacs on a couple of shelves that just give it a bit of extra character. They also had some great, easy listening tunes playing in the background - it complemented the setting perfectly.
The selection in furniture was just another reason this place stood out. The stools and tables are very odd (in a good way) - they looked very 'mix n match'. They also had a nice looking couch in the back of the cafe.
The Pocket is a real winner in my books. It's hard to have a care in the world when you're sipping on great coffee, in a great setting and are only minutes away from Moffat Beach. The Pocket at Moffat, get into it this weekend.
