“Making people happy is really what this is all about. It’s not about trying too hard; but it is about taking fresh, honest flavours, a little classic influence and then seeing the smiles of appreciation. Simple.”
Executive Chef & Owner, Matt Donovan

Since opening for business in 2008, Matt’s been building an enviable reputation for consistent food quality and creativity.

Every day begins with delicious (and healthy) choices for breakfast – imaginative selections of fruits, nuts, yoghurts and grains plus old favourites. Eggs are locally produced and you can taste the difference!

Brunches and lunches. Relaxed flavour combinations are perfectly balanced to ‘hit the spot’ just as you need! Again, the emphasis is on freshness and big flavours delivered with practised perfectionism.

Morning & Afternoon Teas & coffees. Great pastries and cakes are served every day with delicious coffees and an excellent selection of teas.

Daily Specials. Our menus change regularly, with daily specials reflecting what’s best and freshest on the day. Seafood doesn’t get much fresher than ours!

Daily Deliciousness

Baked in-house, cheesecakes, muffins, scones and wicked vanilla slices – PLUS a ‘super-drool’ assortment of tarts and cakes. Also, we’ll bake-to-order an amazing range of Celebration Cakes (including Gluten Free)!

Nicole and the staff at the Surf Club Restaurant and Bar Coffs Harbour all went above and beyond all expectations we had for our wedding! 

Leading up to our big day Nicole was easily contactable (super important for us not being Coffs locals) anytime I had a question or a query she would reply straight away. 

The choices on the menu were outstanding – we found it hard to choose just two options for our guests. We also asked if we could alter one entree option and once again; nothing was too much trouble for Nicole and her team! 

The day of our wedding it rained however; this was no problem being able to shuffle times around to suit us and the weather! 

Inside the surf club was outstanding – our chosen decorations had be set up (by Nicole, her staff and Betty Blue Event Hire) with such care and attention to detail. I could not have set things up better myself! 

We had so many guests compliment the food on the night and continue to talk about it for the next couple of days! 

 The bar staff were outstanding on the night! Mine, and my new husbands drinks were always full without even having to ask!

Not one of our guests could complain about the bar service! 

Pete and myself, along with both of our families can not thank Nicole and her team enough from the start of the process through to breakfast the next morning everything was exceptional.

It sure will be a night for all to remember for a very longtime, we could not have chosen a more suitable place to celebrate such a wonderful occasion.
