Located on the main strip in Ettalong Beach, Lords of Pour is a cafe with "killer brews and awesome chews". The cafe, helmed by Ben Coward, provides Coasties and visitors with coffee from all across Australia, including Melbourne and Newcastle, as well as beans from Norway.
The house blend is by Sydney's Single O and a roster of guest roasters make up the cafe's single origin and filter offerings, which includes the likes of The New Paradigm, Square One, Floozy and Talor & Jørgen.
The food menu stars with the usual suspects — eggs of toast ($12), smashed avo ($18) and granola ($14) — and progresses to more inventive eats, such as the smashed pumpkin ($18) served atop sourdough with charred cauliflower, pomegranate and goat's cheese. It also offers three takes on a B&E roll: one standard, one with maple bacon and pulled pork, and a vegan option pumpkin and mushrooms.
