Lotus Café also holds ‘Friday nights + Fancy Food’ dinners on the last Friday of every month with decadent two and three course options available.
The first café in town as you enter Terrigal, Bellyfish has been providing local devotees with excellent fare and drinks since 2008.

The new ‘cool kid’ on the Central Coast, Bar Botanica is a garden café and bar bringing fresh life to The Fragrant Gardens with award-winning gelato and gin.

The rustic interiors, light-flled space and beautiful greenery, make this the ultimate weekend hangout.
