Bulli Beach Cafe, July 2015

As we were waiting for the food buzzer to ring, we observed a few sparrows flying in and out of the restaurant space. Peter tried to catch them with the camera, however they always flew away too quickly to take a proper photo.

I was sneaky and took a picture of Peter as he entered the Cafe.

The special offer on one of the blackboards looked quite enticing. But the offer was for the evening. We had come just for a simple lunch. This was yesterday, Friday the 10th. Peter just tells me, “coldest weather is on its way”. I wonder, how much colder it can get. Isn’t it cold enough by now?

We took some seats inside and studied the menu. Breakfast was only till 11 am, and it was already well past 11. Then we discovered a section “breakfast all day”. Under this section we found some special offers.

I had chosen fresh fruit salad with yoghurt.

Peter had gone to pick up my salad and had to wait for the buzzer to ring to go and get what he had ordered. It did not take long and his huge 10 Dollar burger was ready to be picked up. We had asked for an extra: small

We thought the servings were very generous.

Later on I had a pot of Earl Grey tea and Peter had some coffee. We were very happy with our lunch. Earlier on we had already gone for a walk. We thought it was not too cold since there was absolutely no wind. Unfortunately there was no sun either. At least it did not rain.
We really enjoyed our little walk even though we both felt a little pain in our knees.

I took quite a few pictures. Here are some of them:

  1. My parents used to have a house at Thirroul and our summer holidays were spent there so I know Bulli well. The beach looks deserted compared to how it is in the summer!

    1. Thanks for commenting, Elizabeth. On Friday, was the last day of the winter school-holidays. There were quite a few children around, walking/cycling on the walk/cycle path. The nearby car parking area was packed full. There were not many people in the cafe. Maybe a lot of people who had parked their cars went for walks. We saw quite a few walkers and cyclists along the track that goes along the coast for many miles.

    1. Yes, Sue, It was a good selection of fresh fruit, cut into bite-size pieces, and there was a very generous serving of yummy yoghurt . Since it was a very cool day, I very much welcomed that pot of Earl Grey tea. Some of the chips we ordered on the side I loved dipping into my plain yoghurt! It was supposed a small serving of chips for 3 Dollars. I thought what we had was of good value for the money spent.

  2. That was a great lunch,Uta. I used to camp on top of Bulli when I was a member of a Scooter club in the late fifties or so. I remember the Bulli Pass as being very steep. My brother and I also took a train trip once from Sydney and went camping on the beach at Cole-Dale. Each time the train went through a tunnel we had to close the windows as the smoke from the locomotive would enter the carriages.
    We met a boy at Cole-dale who showed us where to shoot rabbits. He lived there. The beach was packed with tents and we had to walk a long distance to get fish and chips.

    1. I remember the trips with the steam locomotive very well, Gerard. The train goes through about seven tunnels, doesn’t it?
      We used to go on that train from Oak Flats via Wollongong to Sydney very, very often to visit our daughter who was during the 1960s four six years in Prince-Henry-Hospital. Fish and chips was one of our most favourite foods. We usually got them at Central station.
