Social Grounds

Personal Favourite: Mocha and Bacon & Egg Roll

Struggling to find a good coffee? Look no further than Social Grounds. This charming café is located in the heart of town with amazing service, quality coffee, and delicious food. Whether you’re on the go or have time to sit and relax, Social Grounds is a great place to grab a bite to eat. From a simple B&E roll to a cheeky serving of waffles & ice cream, this place gets all of the little things right.

Finnian’s Irish Tavern

Personal Favourite: Chicken Schnitzel with Chips & Mushroom Sauce

Finnian’s Irish Tavern (or Finno’s) is a dynamic pub that lives and breathes good food and live music. If you’ve got a hefty appetite or you’re just feeling peckish, this place will leave you satisfied.

They serve everything from loaded fries, hot dogs and all the pub classics. They have $10 Lunches from Monday to Saturday, and ‘2 for 1’ on Wednesday nights. Head down with your bestie to spend half the money you normally would.

The Beach House

Personal Favourite: The Beachy Burger

As well as one of Port Macquarie’s best waterfront views, the Beach House is an iconic and local favourite place to dine. The balanced atmosphere delivers the perfect hang out spot for every meal of the day. Whether you’re celebrating, catching up, or just procrastinating, you’ll eat some amazing food.

The morning menu has an array of delicious breakfast favourites like eggs bene and the big brekky. From lunch onwards the menu consists of burgers, nachos, seafood, as well as a selection of lighter meals. There is something to please everyone at the Beach House. If you’re in luck, you might even be able to catch some of their live music.
