The Treehouse Cafe
Generous, good-hearted fare in a country cottage on the South Coast.
As the name suggests, Treehouse Cafe feels like a secret hideaway. You'll find it in a former country cottage with timber floors and high ceilings, and just behind Ulladulla's legendary Funland, an old-school arcade packed with dodgems, pinball games and air hockey machines.
Whether you're with your family, your dog or just yourself, there's plenty of room. The menu's all about generous, good-hearted fare, made with veggies from local farmers and ethically sourced meats. If you're there for brekkie, try the signature eggs Benedict, fancied up with turmeric, dill, capers, olives, paprika sweet potato, garlic mushrooms and wilted spinach.
Come lunchtime, you're in for an internationally inspired feast. Head to the Bahamas with the Jamaican Bowl, crowded with spiced jerk-style chicken, brown rice herbed salad, grilled pineapple, cucumber and pickled ginger. Or stay closer to home with 12-hour lamb shoulder, accompanied by roasted fennel, herbed barley, smoked hummus, coconut and bacon flakes.
The coffee comes from Young's Art of Espresso, where organic beans are bought directly from independent farmers. If you want to skip coffee, choose from a matcha latte, warmed golden almond milk (spiced with turmeric, ginger and cinnamon) and a bunch of Bodhi organic teas.
