Chances, you'll smell Maverick before you see it. Tucked away behind a car dealer and Ulladulla Macca's, this isn't just a cafe, but a microroastery, too. Owner and obsessive barista Andrew Gibson worked his way around Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Europe before setting up shop on the South Coast. He knows his beans inside-out, including where to source those that are both ethical and tasty.
Sink into a couch in the light-filled industrial space and order your brew of choice — be it a house blend or one of the ever-changing single origins, like the Blue Bianca from Indonesia, which has notes of grapefruit and tobacco. And, in case you're travelling with your best mate, puppaccinos also on the menu.
Feeling a bit peckish after your drive? Take your pick of sweet treats – from vegan donuts and hand-crafted chocolates to fresh pastries. Also, back in the centre of town, Maverick has a sibling cafe called The Sunday Life, which is open seven days a week from 6am.
