Billed as a “coffee/art space” Little Gunga is one of the many coffee offerings in the buzzing tourist village of Milton on the South Coast of New South Wales.
My husband’s family is from Ulladulla and while visiting one weekend a few years back his sister insisted we visit the newest cafe, obligingly we went along with the promise of good coffee, and we weren’t disappointed. As we walked in the door we were greeted by the welcoming face of a barista I had worked with many moons ago at a cafe in Cronulla, so immediately I knew we were in for a coffee treat. Blake has since sold the cafe, however the new owners have employed a lovely lady, Rhiannon, I went to high school with who is still pumping out high quality coffee.
Little Gunga is nestled in an ally leading to a car park but has much more charm that one would expect to find from that description. Hosting an eclectic mix of seating and well lacquered wooden bench tops, paired with a beautiful bench front composed of reclaimed timber off-cuts, you immediately feel at ease in this relaxed space.
Go for: the coffee – around $4 for small
Stay for: I’m not going to lie, I usually order take away and wander through the local boutiques while sipping
Bonus: check in-store for music acts and art exhibitions
