Godot new tyres to be fitted requires some caffeine. So seeing that the lovely gents at Jax Tyres Warners Bay were attending to the said tyres, and would require 2 hours to do so, I thought I would check out a local cafe, a 10 min walk away, on a sunny Friday morning.
King St Depot is located as its name suggests on the corner of King and Howard Sts, Warners Bay. It is a small cafe with seating for approx 17 people but packs a punch with their good coffee (Genovese beans) and delightful menu. As it turns out I required 2 coffees that morning and both were consistently good – sometimes an issue for Hunter baristas! The menu was too tempting, so the avocado and ricotta on sourdough was ordered. Nicely presented on the ubiquitous wooden board with a wedge of lemon for self spritzing and generous toppings – $12. A rather nice little breakfast/brunch to keep me going.
Friendly staff, good coffee and value for money offerings will see me coming back. The place has a really nice ambiance and is obviously frequented by the locals. Word of warning though….probably best not to take your elderly Aunty Joan as the seating is all stools and would no doubt become uncomfortable for her.
So if in Warners Bay, give this little gem a try…..and if needing tyres, ask for Rodney at Jax. He’s a good bloke.
