First time in this shop however it won't be the last. I normally have a double shop at most coffee shops but thought I would try a normal flat white here. Glad I did as it was a great coffee. Look forward to another here soon.

As can be seen from the title, this is the best coffee in Bega. Mark is a great Barista. Make the effort to get to the Nook. You wont be disappointed.

Our visit here happened by chance as we had just gone into Bega to get some petrol. Luckily for us, I fancied a coffee and found this place through TA. What a stroke of good fortune as it was one of our best flat whites in Australia - and my raw food bar was pretty amazing too. Not the easiest... More

Easily best coffee in a 50km radius. Hard to find (in arcade off Carp St between pharmacy and Bendigo Bank). Well worth the trip off the highway. So happy to have found it.

One of the best cups of coffee that we have had on this trip and that's saying something. I read the reviews on Beanhunter and I am pleased they were correct.

We stayed in Bega for 3 nights only, a few months ago. The coffee was really, really good. And we're fussy. Good service, also. Nice vibe. Astro turf a plus + Will definitely return when next in the area.

I come here occasionally when in the area. It is the best coffee in the area hands down and it rivals any coffee shop in Sydney. Mark the barista is always friendly, his side kick Natalie is just as welcoming. If you are passing though Bega there is no other location to go for coffee.

I guess everyone likes different things but I did not like my visit here. My normal coffee spot was closed this day and I tried the Nook for a change. Uncomfortable seating, and frankly bad tasting coffee. I couldn't finish it. Back to my normal spot.

This coffee shop is in an alleyway and serves mainly coffee and cold drinks. The coffee is excellent, and I am a coffee snob. So would recommend this place if you are too.
