One of the hardest decisions you’ll have to make after booking your accommodation in Kiama is where to eat! The town is bustling with so many vendors all capitalising on how easily accessible incredibly fresh produce is to the region.
Silica is right on your doorstep at Oceanview Kiama and is our personal favourite spot to eat. Their hours skew towards lunch & dinner time during the week but they also have an exceptional breakfast menu on the weekends that well deserves a mention.
Diggies is the perfect place to sip on the ocean breeze while enjoying your morning coffee. Located on Blowhole Headland, their gorgeous and fresh cafe style menu is perfect for a brunch feast with friends or to connect over coffee on your romantic holiday in Kiama.
The kings and queens of burgers reside at The Hungry Monkey cafe, and their menu is bursting with nutritious breakfasts and moorish burgers.
