Terrigal locals soak up beachfront views and get their hula on at Island Time Café on Terrigal Esplanade. Across the road from the ocean, strollers can dip their toes in the waves before enjoying brunch and coffee with a Hawaiian twist. Large bi-fold windows open the café’s frontage to the salty, sea air, where dining alfresco is a favourite among guests, while they savour the tropical inspired fare on offer. Start the morning with an Aloha breakfast bowl of chorizo, caramelised pineapple, sweet potato, kale, avocado, poached egg, haloumi and quinoa. Those visiting later may be tempted by fish tacos, served with crunchy slaw, aioli and guacamole or the house specialty of poke bowls – opt for the Maui with grilled jerk chicken, spinach, edamame, wasabi peas, red rice and poke dressing.
