Awaba Beachside Cafe: "All White in Balmoral" Top 5 Page for this destination Middle Harbour Restaurants/Cafes Tip by leffe3

A treasure overlooking the beach in Balmoral. One of only a few of the options in a glorious location. Not cheap, but then nothing is here with the exception of the take-away chippie. But 'Awaba' is hip, stylish, excellent food, welcoming and formal enough to be an eating destination, informal enough just for coffee. And it really is decked out almost entirely in white - except for the mirrors running along one interior wall and the two outer walls with huge open windows - sit at the bench seating here for a glorious view.

Open for breakfast (7.30am - 11.15am) and lunch (12 noon -3pm) 7 days per week plus dinner Thurs-Sat, 6pm-9.30pm

Favorite Dish: The special of herb gnocchi with duck and caramelised onion was spectacular, as was the herb and parmesan encrusted chicken schnitzel. But simpler meals, foccacias etc also available (and a whole display of cakes and friands looked inviting but we managed to look the other way :))
