Only a three minute drive from Avoca Beach is an old corner store housing specialty coffee cafe, Like Minds. It's evident, once stepping inside, however, that Like Minds is so much more than just a place to drink coffee. It's also an art gallery, creative hub, design venue and market garden — a community space to be used and enjoyed.
Opened by local couple James Rolph and Melissa Morgan, the cafe has a focus on sustainability with a "zero waste" food policy. Local produce is also used where possible and herbs are picked every morning from the on-site garden.
But, back to what we're all (most likely) here for: coffee. Like Minds' brews are made on beans by Sydney's Fat Poppy Specialty Coffee and come cold, hot, black, white, iced and spiced. Yep, if you're feeling adventurous, you might decide to order the chipotle mocha, made with a double shot of espresso, smoked chilli and dark chocolate.
