Raising the bar - The Mossy cafe
The Mossy cafe in Mossy Point has undergone some huge changes in the past 2 months. A new General Manager has come on board, Mathew Hatcher, who brings years of experience in hospitality.

He clearly sees The Mossy as more than just a place to stop for a muffin. By introducing a new breakfast, lunch and tapas dinner menu he is bringing a new food scene to this sleepy village. The Mossy is now a destination cafe that is worth making the drive for. Mathew has brought with him a new chef Matt Johnston (formerly of Zanzibar, Merimbula & Cutler & Co., Melbourne) and the menu is a reflection of their collaboration.

It is clear they are getting back to basics and using local produce to show how great the food is from this region. Staying close to home they are using honey from Malua Bay, breads from artisan bakers in Bermagui and Pambula and their eggs and grass feed lamb come from Moruya.
They are now doing Tapas dinners on Friday and Saturdays which have been met with praise by customers. The menu changes slightly weekly so check out their Facebook page for current menus. They have featured local suckling pig, Alabama buttermilk fried chicken and mango cream bombe Alaska! The Mossy Cafe, 31 Pacific St Mossy Point - 4471 8599
