The Little Bay Takeaway
Yes, the café décor and food is amazing, but have you visited their takeaway coffee window on the side of the main café? The coffee window is located directly opposite the beach, over West Coast Drive, so you can visit either pre-or post-swim. You may as well grab some banana bread and a muffin while you’re there too.
