We are so lucky here in Coffs Harbour that there is an abundance of restaurants and cafe's open early in the morning right through until after lunch and often serving all-day-breakfast, and then there is almost as many places open serving dinner. There is a lot of variety to choose on depending on what it is that you like to eat and your budget. We also have some very beautiful surrounding towns not too far from Coffs and have some great shopping and local attractions.

The 'Clog Barn' offers the most delicious pancake stack for approx. $13, while the Twisted Sisters Cafe at the Jetty has an area for the kids to play while you catch up with friends over a well deserved coffee and cake. The food is pretty great too and they have a range of locally made products available to purchase as well, locals supporting locals is great!

Have you ever been on holidays and you actually WANTED to cook? Well... Me neither (lol)

I know how frustrating it is though, when you want something yummy and fulfilling for dinner, are on holidays and you have no idea on the best places to eat OR the places that offer GREAT meals at affordable budget friendly prices.

That's why I thought that I would do this post, and help share my part of Australia as a local with those who might be on holidays and visiting Coffs Harbour and the Coffs Coast and/if you are a local who is wanting to know where they can dine for under $11!

Here is my list of 11 places to eat for under $11.

Breakfast with a view
The Park Beach Surf Club is right on the beach, and you can enjoy $10 breakfasts 7 days a week overlooking the beautiful beaches and enjoy the views of the surrounding landscape. 

Plenty of parking available, and only a stones throw from the beach to go on a stroll after Breakfast.
Or if you're a dare devil, why don't you skydive onto the beach in front of the surf club.



Or if you would enjoy eating breakfast looking out over beautiful Coffs Creek at the fish and mangroves, my personal favourite breakfast spot is Mangrove Jacks with breakfast options starting from a low $4.50 for Raison or Cinnamon Toast with meal options ranging to $14.
I just love the peace and trainquility Mangrove Jack's offers.

If you're in Sawtell, or wanting to go and have breakfast somewhere, take the drive out there. Only a short drive from Coffs and some of the most beautiful beaches and views from the headlands and lookouts. While you're there stop by the Wholly Cow cafe and take advantage of the awesome $10 bacon + egg burger and coffee deal. Friendly staff and I just love the vibe you get when you walk through the doors.

Lunch for under $11

Hogs Breath Cafe $9.90 lunches available Monday-Friday, and these are pretty big meals! My husband loves the smoked BBQ beef wrap which comes with the delicious curly fries, while I like the grilled chicken and ranch burger with curly fries.

But they also have fish and chips, nachos, crispy chicken ceaser wrap and mexican beef wrap on offer.
Also open for dinner, and kids can eat free (check the store for terms and conditions of use).


The C.ex Club in the heart of Coffs Harbour CBD offer a range of $9.90* meals over lunchtime during the week (*$10.90 for non members) and include a selection of 7 mains and 4 desserts, with desserts being an additional 50c!!

These meals are also available over the weekend, but the pricing is different.

The club is quite large and also has a kids club for the kids while you have a drink after lunch, with there also being a 'glee club' each school holidays.
 

This would be my favourite Chinese place to go to for lunch or dinner in Coffs, and they have beautiful lunchtime specials for just $9.95 including fried rice or crispy noodles. Located in Park Ave across from Woolworths.
                                                They also offer dinner delivery for a very small fee.


The Hoey Moey is located down alongside of the beautiful Park Beach, in Coffs Harbour and is home of the $7.50 feeds available at lunch and dinner (a different option each night).
Monday night is Barrumundi; Tuesday is Lamb Cutlets night; Wednesday is Rump night; Thursday is Chicken Parmi night; Friday is Chicken snitzel; Saturday is lamb cutlets and Sunday is Rump steak!

Every Sunday there is also Kids Club Crab day with kids eating FREE from 12-2PM and live crab racing from 12.30pm. There is also kids club as well on a Sunday.

 

There is this quaint and homely little cafe about 20-30mins drive from Coffs Harbour situated in the village of Bellingen or as the locals know it as 'Bello'. The Black Bear Cafe situated on Church St, is home to the $11 Friday Pieday specials where you'll enjoy a locally baked pie, salad and a tea or coffee. What a bargain at $11!

 


Dinner for the family under $11

The Plantation Hotel, on the highway in the heart of Coffs would be our regular place to eat with their $8.50 lunches and dinners, and it is such a good atmosphere with Tuesday nights being family nights and entertainment for the kids, and the kids can even make their own pizzas! I love their chunky battered fries they serve too.

Monday nights they have trivia, Tuesday they have 30 of these huge meat raffles, Monday and Wednesday nights is buy any 2 meals from the A La Carte menu and only pay for the more expensive meal! 
Tuesday nights, kid's can also eat FREE*! *Conditions apply, see their website for more information.


The Seaview Tavern is located up on the hill in River St Woolgoolga, and is a great place for the whole family with plenty of comfortable outdoor lounges and seating, as well as on Sunday's there is things to do for the family.

At the moment there is $7.50 lunch and dinners on offer, including chicken snitzel, roast dinners, steaks and more! There is also a courtesy bus you can take advantage of.

Every Sunday kids can eat FREE* with every full Adult meal purchased at Lunch or Dinner.

 

There is this great and unique venue in Coffs down on the Jetty strip called element bar created within a modern/rustic/urban industrial space and is the place to be. With not only a great selection of food at a great price, they also have a range of drinks and cocktails to suit every preference along with amazing LIVE music.

Best of all, they are opened until late of a night.

On Tuesday nights they have a 'wings, rings and dogs night' which includes a 1KG bucket of chicken wings for $10 in honey soy chicken, buffalo style or ghost peper. Along with a bowl of crispy onion rings for $5 and an American style hot dog for $7. It is the funkiest place in Coffs. Love the atmosphere and vibe!

While there are a lot more restaurants and cafes in the area than the 11 places I mentioned, this is a list of my top 11 choices for eating out in under $11, and if you have your own recommendations within the local area, please feel free to comment these below. 

I feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area of Australia, and I hope that you find this guide to affordable places to eat while on holidays useful. Be sure to stop by the Solitary Islands Aquarium, and the Dolphin Marine Magic and get a kiss off of a Dolphin!

I highly urge you to head to the Woolgoolga headland during winter and see how many whales you can spot as they migrate north.

It won't take you long to fall in love with the Coffs Coast!
