If you're planning a relaxing afternoon on Oriental Parade, then Beach Babylon is a must. It's certainly unique among cafes—they fully committed to their kitsch, electric, retro vibe. And it's delightful, full of conversation starters.
They do a mean coffee, and lovely food with vegan options. The staff are kind and smiley, and there's outdoor seating if it's still, sunny day. An easy 4.5 stars.
One of the best milkshake experts in town! so many great flavours! personally I think the best has to be the Bounty Bar or the Snickers Bar- which they make with delicious Pic's peanut butter. Love the fact that their shakes actually have bits in them (the bountry bar one has bits of desiccated coconut in it and the snickers has the crunchy bits of peanut from the peanut butter)
I've been told the food is also pretty great but am yet to try it for myself.
100% recommend giving their milkshakes a go!
I come here for a coffee and to do some work with my laptop. It is a cozy place with a lot of room to find a seat.
Always great for a snack with their yummy choices. They even cater to gluten and sometimes dairy sensitivities.
The patio is a great place to have a good chat with a friend on a sunny day and watch people stroll by the ocean front.
Another indirect bonus is the parking. 2 hours free parking right in front.
