My favourite cafe out west. They make the best coffee that I've found, and have delicious food in the cabinet and on the menu. The staff are always welcoming and friendly, and there is plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors.
Swanson station has great food and friendly staff. Nice location to stop in for a quick bite or coffee on your way out to bethells beach. Also market day (1st Sunday of the month) is a great chance to meet locals and have a nice breakfast. Mushrooms on ciabatta is the way to go :)
