Local brothers, Stan and Aaron Crinis, opened Diggies Cafe ten years ago in this iconic, heritage listed building, a stones throw from the sand. Giving a new lease on life to an old friend.
The bright, casual cafe with open windows overlooking North Wollongong beach is buzzing all day long starting from 6.30 in the morning. Joggers, surfers, people on their way to work, mums n bubs and good friends all gather here to enjoy their daily brew with a view and ocean breeze.
“It’s a real social hub, a great place to meet your friends for a brew and an eggs benni in the morning, lunch or for an easy dinner and a glass of wine in the evening. Regulars have been coming here, almost every day, for the last eight or so years. It’s very special to of created a place that is a real part of the community.” When it comes to the food, the whole philosophy is a simple menu with a real focus on seasonal, good quality local produce.
