2KF is a tradie's dream. Open from 5am till 2.30pm during the week, they're there when you need them (and caffeine) most. A hole-in-the-wall with a handful of tables inside and out, 2KF isn't designed for you to hang around. You come here, grab what is clearly a top contender for the beaches' preferred bean (Campos) and get on with your day. If you do need some sustenance to go with your coffee, this Mona Vale cafe makes a mighty fine toastie. Not your average ham, cheese and bread combo, theirs comes with spinach, seeded mustard and a delicious white sauce — perfectly designed to grab and go.
An insider's tip that will prevent you from holding up the production line: 2KF is cash only. And if, God forbid, you've slept in, there's no need to panic — or worse, start the day without a coffee. You can call ahead and place your order for a speedy pick-up.
