Peel to Pip is a local favourite, catering to all ages. This light, welcoming space is a cosy spot offering Eighthirty coffee and a range of cabinet food with vegan/vege/GF/DF options. Their seasonal menu changes depending on what is fresh at the time, and they pride themselves on using every part of a fruit- right down to the peel (hence the cafe’s name). They are a sustainable business, using organic, homegrown produce wherever possible, often given to them by people they know. Everything is recycled/composted and they only throw away three bags of rubbish a week (quite a feat for a restaurant!). The cafe has been passionately developing sustainable cuisine since opening in October 2015.

Peel to Pip prides themselves on being the heart of the close community, welcoming kids, hosting birthday parties and functions, and providing a hub to local coffee consumers. Expect a bright atmosphere, beachy aesthetic and lots of windows. White walls, exposed wood floors and oodles of fernery- with dark grey and yellow shawls draped across the chairs for the cooler months. The cafe is family friendly with a kids playground area for the “Little Pips”, and an air of tranquility to calm any upset children. Tomato vines, fairy lights, plants, chills herbs create a rich, dynamic environment that is a pleasure to sip a coffee in. Peel to Pip also make their own jams, chutneys, relishes, salsas, mustard and pickles which are available for purchase, and the Karma Cola range is on offer for the fizzy drink lovers. Keep an eye on their Facebook and Instagram to follow their changing seasonal menu!
