It’s hard to beat the gorgeous views of the Pelican Pavilion, uniquely positioned on the sand of Collaroy Beach. Sipping on one of their amazing smoothies makes you feel like you’re on holidays.
Open 7 days a week, the cafe is an enclosed deck on the sand with a unique and uplifting atmosphere, friendly staff and a small kids’ playground right on the beach, with baskets of sand toys so that kids can play as you dine, making it a pram/family friendly venue.
CocoJoy Coconut Smoothy $8 and ‘Vit C’ Juice $9.5
We started off with 2 great refreshing drinks: a coconut smoothie and a freshly squeezed juice, a perfect balanced blend of pineapple, watermelon and orange.
Fish Tacos $5.5
These were some of the best tacos I’ve ever had! A delicate and perfect mix of lettuce, barramundi, chipotle sauce, coriander and their famous chimichurri sauce.
Vitality Salad $21
This salad is packed with grains, nutrition and flavour! A fantastic option for vegetarians, this meal comes with a healthy dose of baby spinach, heirloom tomatoes, toasted grains (poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, pepita and paprika seeds), house-made salsa verde, quinoa, spiced sweet potato, avocado and persian feta (V and GF).
Fresh fish of the day, Market Price.
The ‘catch of the day’ was this deliciously fresh salmon, cooked to perfection, and accompanied by really tasty chips and a lovely delicate mixed greens salad with tomatoes and quinoa. Definitely a recommendation.
Wagyu burger $19
Perfectly cooked medium rare Wagyu beef patty, very tender, not at all chewy: this burger will not leave you disappointed. Comes with crispy lettuce, shaved blackforest pastrami, melted cheese, tomato, house-made burger sauce, sliced pickles and with their signature waffle fries, golden and crunchy.
Pelican Pavilion also makes its own Sticky Chai. A combination of English Breakfast, chai leaves, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and honey, all infused for 3 days. $4.8
Hibiscus tea. You won’t find this on the menu, but ask the waiter and they might still have some of this unique tea.
Pelican Pavilion features the freshest of locally sourced ingredients, serving a full breakfast menu, snacks and lunches 7 days a week and is available for private functions in the evening. They can get quite busy, especially on weekends and have beach car parking, available besides the café. A coffee cart is also available during the weekends for a quick take away.
