Beach Bums cafe is located just above the main beach in Forster. This very popular outdoor restaurant is great for meals or just a coffee. Friendly service with a fabulous view.

We managed to get in just before the end of lunch service. The food was great, as was the coffee. The location on Forster Main Beach gives a lovely view.

This place has always been average and after my last experience it still is.Food,coffee and service all average it is tourist trap you can get much better service food and coffee just down the road in town. Save your money and avoid this place.
