TLC Cafe, Wollongong NSW
|An option for a hideaway seating.|
There is a large fern leaf incorporated into the bricked wall along a narrow enclave on one side of the back of the cafe. Even if the space is compact, I noticed regulars heading straight for this alcove-like
corner. The beauty of this is that this is smack in the middle of Wollongong city centre, a stone's
throw from the IPAC auditorium and across Burelli Street from the Council. If you like, you can enter through a lane beside Lee & Me Cafe on lower Crown Street.
|Emphasis on coffee but also a practical menu for breakfast, brunch and lunch.|
What seems to be city centre workers come in and out regularly even early on a weekday morning.
The menu is limited but easy, all for daytime snacking or a meal. There are sweet stuff in the lit display. The sunlight is kept out on the bricked plaza outside, whilst inside it is a refuge in a cottage surrounding.
The coffee blend is in house. The staff that day were friendly, smiling and passionate about their business. It is relaxing to come to this cafe whether for a short while, a take away or to linger on a while more. The street is not in your face, the barista is knowledgeable and the rustic feel envelopes you with a comforting embrace.
The TLC Cafe is located at Town Hall Place, Wollongong NSW.
