We visited this café twice during our Fingal Heads stay. Service is relaxed and most helpful. Great coffee, juices and tasty lunches. Live music on Saturday afternoon lent for a very chilled experience.

You can almost drive right past this place without seeing it. That would be a big mistake. Coffee and tea is great. Yummy munchies and a fun coastal hippie vibe. It became our regular while staying at Fingal.

We decided on the Sheoak Shack for a girls lunch. Was not disappointed. We all ordered one of their salads and they were generous in servings and divine in flavour. Funky atmosphere with chilled music. We were a large group and nothing was a problem. Great coffee, great atmosphere. Would highly recommend an afternoon there.

I love this place with its Live music on Saturday nights. This eclectic looking cafe/restaurant is a must. If you want to get a taste of the lay back alternative life style of the Northern rivers then you must visit the Shoak shack. The ambience of a Saturday night here will reduce your stress levels. It is advisable to book... More

Great coffee. Good food. Great environment, next to the water. 10% Surcharge on a Sunday? Live music on a Saturday avo. What more could you ask for.

I have been to this cafe a number of times when I lived in the area. Recently went for a coffee when on holiday and it still has that no fuss, welcoming vibe..the kind of cafe you can just rock up wearing whatever and its ok. Unfortunately I missed seeing the live music that is regularly offered during spring and... More

Recently took my family here after having visited 4 years ago when we had a great time. Well this time I was so embarrassed it was literally the worst food I have ever had anywhere in the world. There was nothing to like about anything brought out from the kitchen - what a disaster!! They couldn't even get the drinks... More

I visited the Sheoak Shack on Sat 10th for my Birthday lunch with family and friends.. I was instantly made to feel welcome. This hidden little gem sits on the river at Fingal Head and is just gorgeous. We enjoyed beautiful food, whilst listening to the live band and the service was top notch. I will most definitely be back... More
