Views, brews and books – our pick of Port Macquarie’s best cafés
Port Macquarie’s café scene has boomed in recent years with food offerings moving from dated coffee shops to hipster enterprises full of fine food and quality coffee.

It’s no secret that we love the views and brews from Salty Crew Kiosk at Town Beach. We’re also partial to the cosy atmosphere and reading selection at Bookface in Port Central, which ticks all the boxes for quality food, coffee, books and gifts.

It’s also worth taking the coastal drive toward the Camden Haven which is just a short trip south from Port Macquarie. It’s still a relatively quiet area and many locals want it to stay that way! Boasting incredible waterways that snake around the imposing North Brother Mountain, you’ll find a view around every corner in this region. When visiting this part of the world, be sure to call into Caramels in Lake Cathie. Don’t let their location beside the shopping centre deter you – this delightful café is one of the region’s best-kept secrets.
Across the river, the Dunbogan Boatshed is also a popular place to sip a coffee right on the water while the kids feed the fish.
