Diggies was opened in 2004 by the local Crinis family, who lovingly restored this iconic, heritage listed building – giving a new lease on life to an old friend.
A stones throw from the sand, 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.
General Manager Stan Crinis says ”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, right from the beginning. It’s very special to have 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 focus on seasonal, good quality local produce.
