Geordie’s Cafe is a newbie to Rottnest Island and it is located in the bustling Geordie Longreach Village Square. The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch every day of the week. From Tuesday to Sunday an early dinner is available and when I refer to early the cafe closes at the hour of 8:30pm. One thing we noticed when staying overnight on the island is there is not a lot of people around after 9:00pm. After a day in the sun swimming, cycling and maybe drinking a few glasses of wine well it is understandable to pass out in the evening!
The Village Square is just as bustling as the main settlement at Thomson Bay and everyone out and about is looking very relaxed, all the bicycles racks are full and there are bicycles scattered everywhere. Ahhh Amsterdam I miss you.
The cafe is tastefully fitted out and the big shiny coffee machine is just screaming out ‘we mean business’. The walls are a gallery of local artwork for sale, inspired by the beautiful landscape of the island. There is some seating inside but the majority of seating is outside in the square under the shade sails, this is where we take a table and sit down.
We ordered a few drinks and a beer battered chips to share. Overall it was a good experience for us whilst we killed some time waiting for check in at Hotel Rottnest. Prices though as slightly high but so is everything on the island.
Summer Skies Squeezed Juice ($8.00) – mango, pineapple apple
Banana Smoothie ($8.00)
Beer battered chips and sauces ($8.00)
To cycle from the main settlement to Thomson Bay is about a 15 minute journey. The accommodation shuttle bus and bay seeker bus both stop at the village square. Nearby bays to go for a swim include Parakeet Bay, Geordie Bay, Longreach Bay and Fays Bay. There is accommodation in Geordie Bay and Longreach Bay, the luxury villas elevated above Longreach Bay provide some stunning views of the ocean. The area is very popular with families.
