Pelican Pavilion: Waterfront brunch

  Gourmet breakfast by the seaside.

Gourmet breakfast by the seaside.

Sometimes, all you need after a busy working week is a trip to the beach... add a beautiful brunch on top of that and you've got yourself a winning remedy. 

Pelican Pavilion is situated one timber step up from the sand of Collaroy Beach on the Northern Beaches. It has become a café for locals to enjoy breakfast and lunch, as well as a place to pick up smoothies, juices and pastries. The ocean backdrop makes this space the ultimate summer pitstop in Sydney and what better day to pay it a visit than a sunny Saturday morning. My tip? Order the ricotta hot-cakes and don't leave without dipping your toes in the ocean on your way out.

Address: 1064 Pittwater Road, Collaroy Beach
