We've had many family breakfasts at Estabar - so, on our last visit, we took the grandchildren.

The grandkids got a real kick from watching the early morning beach parade... More

There is much to like about Estabar. It's busy but the service is good. The food and coffee are fine and well priced. Some of the staff are easy on the eye and all of them are charming. The view over Newcastle City Beach is a delight. The only down side is it can be a bit hot in summer... More

The coffee was lovely, and the lunches (from breakfast menu)we had were very tasty when they arrived. The only reason for 4... More

I have eaten here many times and on more occasions had coffee. The eggs - poached - were hard boiled, the butter put on the wrong bread, the delivery of the coffee proceeded the meal by almost 20 minutes so on this occasion in effect it failed on all levels in stark contrast as to how things were for many...

We had breakfast and lunch here. The produce is fresh and locally sourced where possible.... and you can tell. Everything tastes delicious. There is also a great drinks menu with interesting frappes and good coffee.

On a hot day at the beach, nothing beats a double gelato from Estabar. Come for the gelato, stay for the view

Helpful waitress guided me quickly to a good vegan variation as there wasn't a clear option marked on the menu. Coffee was superb. Staff were friendly. The beetroot dip and avo on sourdough was delicious. Great views and vibe.
