I’m back in Lennox Head this week visiting my lovely in-laws in their fantastic new house and am very excited to try all the new restaurants that have sprung up.

But first The Bear and I had breakfast at an oldie, but a goodie, the Point Cafe. This is where the locals go to get excellent value for money and speedy, friendly service. It wasn’t too busy this morning and we got a great spot outside in the sun; heaven after our chilly time in Milton Keynes and we joyfully soaked up the rays like a pair of lounging lizards.

In just a few minutes our flat whites were delivered and they were complex and nutty like coffee should be. I wonder what kind of milk they used because they were incredibly creamy and had a nice thick crema on top.

My salmon eggs benedict was perfect. I was cursing myself after ordering because I like to get the hollandaise sauce on the side. I think Chef’s are often too heavy handed and it overpowers all the other ingredients. But I need not have worried because when it arrived there was just the right amount to coat the eggs without drowning them.

The eggs themselves were beautifully poached and the salmon was very fresh. My favourite part was the rye sourdough bread; it had a nice strong taste and a pleasant chewy texture.

The Bear’s bacon and scrambled eggs were good too. Nice fluffy scrambled eggs that hadn’t been moved around in the pan too much. I get annoyed by people who think the ‘scrambling’ gets done in the pan, it makes the eggs watery, yuck. The Bear felt they could do with a little more salt and adjusted this himself.

The Point Cafe has a great location (the ocean is crashing just a few feet away), great food, perky service and is sure to please. I’ll be back, maybe even as soon as tomorrow!

Happy eating, Christie
