La Banette Patisserie Boulangerie
A slice of downtown Paris in Avalon, La Banette will transport you to Paris with one bite of their chocolate éclair.

Beach House Avalon
Beach House Avalon is a small seaside café. To avoid the mad dash to score a seat, we recommend getting your food takeaway and having a picnic on the sand. As the day’s winding down, if you’re feeling fancy, go to the upstairs restaurant, which is a little more polished. Settle in and watch the sunset with a glass of bubbles or a cold cider in hand. Bliss.
Sushi ICHIRI Japanese Cuisine
In a little old converted home in the heart of the town centre, Sushi Ichiri brings authentic Japanese cuisine to the shores of Avalon. Fully licensed with BYO, the restaurant takes inspiration from Shonan; a coastal town west of Tokyo renowned for its use of fresh produce.
Northern Beaches family owned and operated, Beco is passionate about two things. Coffee and food. With a location in Mona Vale as well, the Avalon outpost is rustic and homely. Open for breakfast and lunch every day, expect less than some delicious Modern Aussie brunch-style fare.
Nourished Wholefood Cafe
Nourished Wholefood Cafe follows the mantra, less is more. Using locally sourced and sustainable ingredients, each dish is carefully curated to ensure full transparency of what is in the meal. The interiors of this neighbourhood haunt highlight their ethos with an eclectic and natural vibe. With serving Campos beans, caffeine addicts are happy, and the broad health-focused menu provides great options for dietary needs.
The Mill @ Avalon Beach
The folks at Avalon’s The Mill are all about live music, great company and quality fare. The smooth cocktails and wide-ranging wine list make this small, cosy bar the perfect spot to relax. The boutique wine bar won’t leave you wanting on the food front either, serving up fresh seafood by the net full.
Beach House, Avalon
Located in the surf club with uninterrupted views of Avalon Beach, the Beach House stands by their motto 'eat, drink, chill'. Open throughout the day, the Beach House has an upscale beach kiosk vibe and is a favourite amongst the locals. Due to its proximity to the waves, the menu is all about Modern Australian, seafood dishes.
If you follow Sitchu you know we are suckers for millennial pink venues, and Sunset Diner is the latest restaurant to pique our interest. The perfect aprés-beach hangout, this beautifully-styled oasis brings the Miami vibe to the Northern Beaches. Take a seat in the outdoor courtyard and peruse the souped-up menu of burgers, griddle dogs, salads, shakes, sundaes and moreish sides. Onion rings and truffle parmesan fries anyone?
