Breakfast

Bistro Blu at the Mercure Hotel

Located at the Mercure Hotel, just a quick drive to Charlestown and you have arrived at Blue Bistro for a spectacular breakfast buffet. As breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day, don’t skimp on their arrangement of hot and cold meals within their continental breakfast. For those of you who aren’t in a rush to get to work or simply want to graze your way through the morning until brunch, this is the place to settle. Take the time to share a great start to the morning with your family on the weekend or try something that is a little bit new and exciting rather then just placing two slices of bread in the toaster at home.

Bistro Dalby at the Novotel Newcastle Beach

Our second pick for early risers who like to dine in style at breakfast is the Bistro Dalby which is at Hotel Novotel Newcastle Beach. If you aren’t a big eater then you can start off with their selection of fresh fruits and pastries before creating your own breakfast plate which includes eggs, bacon, toast and a range of breakfast assortments. You don’t have to be a guest at the Novotel to enjoy a holiday breakfast which makes the rest of the day an absolute breeze. What makes this restaurant dining experience so special is that after you’re completely full, you can head to the beach to burn off all of those extra calories from breakfast.

Beijing Buffet at Wests Suburbs Leagues Club

If you are a huge fan of Asian food then you need to head to Beijing Buffet which is nothing short of amazing. Pile up your plate with everything from noodles to stir-fry and all the extra specialities that we love which are influenced by Asia. Their honey chicken is simply divine with its sweet, succulent and crispy taste that is just mouth-watering. A great place for dinner, you can take the whole family to enjoy a special meal during the week or on the weekend. Be sure to arrive early as this restaurant is extremely popular during the evening starting at 5pm every day of the week.
