Although The Clog Barn is a tourist attraction, this hive of activity away from the main streets of Coffs Harbour is a great place to take your family for something a little bit different. Big Oma’s Coffee House is situated at The Clog Barn which captures the essence of Holland right in Coffs Harbour. The owner’s vision for this replica Dutch village was to let the locals see another side of the world and enjoy a change in cultures. The buildings aren’t the only things that are different, order from their Dutch menu which features Dutch specialties like croquettes and crepes. After an amazing breakfast at Big Oma’s you can visit The Clog Shop to buy a souvenir or simply take a stroll around the gardens and Dutch model village with your children.
