Ballina - Cafes
Brewsters cafe has an extensive menu containing fresh and tasty food, especially the pancakes come highly recommended.
The Coffee Club
The Coffee Club is a large home-grown café group serving more than 40 million cups of coffee every year. The admirable thing is not their size, but their contribution to environmental activities and their donations to charity events and funding to local communities and schools.
Happy Buddha Coffee and Internet Cafe
Formerly known as the Great Australian Ice Creamery, the Happy Biddha has now expanded to providing takeaway, cafe meals and internet access. It is also called "the other tourist info centre" as the staff is friendly and excited when it comes to helping out with maps and information.
The Bean Bank Coffee House
The Bean Bank Coffee House is said to be little piece of Melbourne in Ballina, thanks to its funky atmosphere, groovy tunes and fine coffee. They offer lunch and takeaway, sweets and various beverages.
Cafe Swish can be quite busy, as it is a popular place, but the service is outstanding and they have an excellent variety of cakes and sweets. The coffee is great and once you’ve seen it for yourself, you’re gonna want to come back.
