23/07/2010 Breakfast at Monet’s, Clyde River, Batemans Bay by Vanessa Pike-Russell

I recently made a trip from Wollongong to Bega (and a few days later the return journey) on the Premier Motor Service coach on a $79 adult backpacker pass each direction for 3 months. There are several stops along the journey including one at Nowra Stewart Place and Batemans Bay. On the trip down I bought a Hellenic Wrap from Socrates Table Cafe in Berry St, Nowra which was delicious.

Then on the same trip we stopped at Batemans Bay where I purchased a Mocha from the StarFish cafe which came with a free mini marshmallow. Sweet!

After spending some time with my Grandmother in Bega I made my way back a few days later and this time had Breakfast at Monet’s Cafe on the water at Batemans Bay. I had caught the 7am bus from Bega so decided a bacon with two eggs on gluten-free toast would give me the needed energy to last the 6 hour trip back to Wollongong.

There is something so special about eating warm food and a great cup of coffee with the spectacular view to make you feel good. A big thanks to the staff at Monets for their wonderful service with a smile and for catering to people with Gluten sensitivities. It’s a shame the local bakery had no gluten-free options but if they had I wouldn’t have found a great place to spend the Batemans Bay rest break.
