a Beachside hangout


Located an hour north of Sydney, in the seaside holiday town of Terrigal, Central Coast, NSW, lies Bellyfish.  Father and son team Steve and Mitch and the Bellyfish family welcome you to their home away from home.



Bellyfish opened in April 2008 and is situated in a sun filled position across from Terrigal beach, at the entrance to town. We started out as a small, family run cafe and over the years have evolved into a bustling meeting place for locals and Sydney holidaymakers alike. 

Our menus are ever changing and feature key Central Coast small producers, with a fun, modern Australian brunch focus, as well as serious coffee by Sydney roasters Single O. Recently we have also added a small but enticing beer and wine list, with local favourites Six String Brewing and Murray's Brewing as well as Australian boutique wines from the Hunter Valley and further abroad. 

The service is warm, friendly, prompt and relaxed, with a focus on customer service. That's right, table service is our thing, so grab a seat and let us serve you. No lining up in queues here!

Bellyfish is a place where you can grab a coffee before work, share brunch with friends or enjoy a seaside lunch and a bevvy in the sun. We encourage you to kick back and soak up this coastal lifestyle. Come and join our family...

Ps. Keep your eyes on the ocean too. Whales and dolphin are a common sighting from our picnic tables!
