The Milkman's Daughter Mermaid Beach


Here at The Urban List we’re absolute suckers for a gorgeous interior. So from the moment we stepped foot inside The Milkman’s Daughter we were positively squealing with delight.

For starters you’d never be able to tell it was once the home of much-loved cafe Vintage Espresso. From the second you walk inside you’re transported to a rainforest retreat with loads of lush greenery and white concrete alcoves filled with comfy cushions just begging you to curl up with your pals and cradle a coffee. We could stay here all day, and thanks to the all-day breakfast AND all-day lunch menu, we just might.

While it seems just about every cafe on the Coast offers avo toast, The Milkman’s Daughter has to be one of the best we’ve ever tasted and we’ve had A LOT! The thick cut bread, herbed smashed avo, Danish fetta, poached egg and hint of chilli make it the perfect start to our morning. 

Lunch is another delish affair with chilli bean nachos, corn fritters with coconut chutney and a grain salad that looks way too tasty to be healthy, but FYI it is. For those in a hurry there’s take-away rolls, muffins and slices available too. But we really recommend making the time to come in and stay for a while.
