FOR A LITTLE EXTRA HERE IS WHAT WE THINK!

Located on the famous strip of The Esplanade with a view that money just can’t buy. Growlers boast a beautiful red gum bar, old surfing photographs and let’s not forget the sandy beach in our front beer garden courtyard, fantastic for the kids to play in the play area with chalkboard.
Senors: – Located on the Esplanade overlooking Main Beach. Grab a cocktail with ocean views and amazing Mexican dishes! The place to be on a warm summer’s night.
Swell: - Located in the heart of Jan Juc is Swell. Delicious food and coffee with a laid-back atmosphere. Try the big swell breakfast if you are hungry. It's huge!! You can also pick up some cool local products as well.
Fishos Torquay:- Easily offering some of the best fish and chips along the coast. When the sun is out, it’s the perfect spot to sit outside with family or friends and enjoy some local seafood. You can’t go past the fish tacos!
need coffee? then try:
Bomboras Torquay: - The perfect spot to grab your early morning coffee. Open from 6 am 7 days a week and centrally located on the Esplanade. Whether you grab it to go, or stay and enjoy a delicious breakfast with, the coffee is fantastic.
MIKRO: - The meaning “Mikro” (mikros) in Greek means small which best describes their small batch roasting approach to focus on what matters most, quality, flavour, and consistency of the coffee and consumer experience. If you take your coffee seriously, then Mikro is a must. Stop, relax and learn about coffee from these guys who know their beans and what’s going on in the coffee world.
Ocean Grind Store - Ocean Grind is all about fresh, quality coffee. It’s about appreciating the coast and the natural environment. It's about the allure of the ocean and the grinding waves it produces. One of the best places to get coffee in Torquay.
