Girdlers

Buckwheat crepes (and other healthy things) by the beach at Dee Why.

Channeling the style of a Hamptons beach house, Girdlers is kitted out for casual brunches and lazy lunches. Perched at the south end of Dee Why Beach, a table out on the deck is a prime spot to kick back and watch the sets roll in — there's even a couple of couches you're quite welcome to curl up on with a book. Another Northern Beaches cafe that's on a health kick, these guys have two kinds of kombucha on tap and almost everything on the menu is gluten free.

But, as many other cafes in the area have already proven, taking the healthy option doesn't mean you'll be missing out. Savoury and sweet buckwheat crepes are their specialty. And while we're not convinced that anything compares to the real thing, we suggest you order a cacao split — a crepe with banana and 'goodtella' (healthy Nutella) — and decide for yourself ($14). If you're more of a savoury person, the smoked salmon crepe with toasted almonds, avo and cauliflower sauce is a strong option ($18). And if you don't have the luxury of spending the day lazing by the beach, they also have a sizeable takeaway menu.
