Loved this cafe. Lots of character and charming service. Delicious coffee. Food is good too, provided you avoid the Bircher muesli, which is horrible. Great location near the beach.

A definite must when in Albany. Fantastic service and atmosphere. Absolutely loved the coffee. Food is excellent and the price is very good. This became our most frequented cafe during our stay. Early opening time is great for the traveller. Definitely recommend a visit.

Open from 6am to 6 pm this place offers coffee, breakfast, ample seating in and outdoors. They sell the newspaper, magazines, chutneys, jams, oils, chocolates, biscuits, muffins, candy, fresh bread, fruit and veg, orange juice, milk, beer and wines. It's a favourite with the locals which says it all.

Location wise it is on Adelaide terrace near the intersection of Marine Terrace. If you're staying on Golf Links Road then it is less than 2 minutes walk. Next door to the Bay Merchants is a boutique shop and RATS Bar. A bit further along on the beach is the Three Anchors

The best vanilla slice I have ever had! The staff are also great and I always tell visitors to Albany to go to Bay Merchant for fantastic food, coffee and local wines. A big thank-you to everyone at Bay Merchants who are always welcoming and friendly, love it!!

This is a quirky little place with a ton of talent in the kitchen.The cappuccino is equal to anything served in a trendy Melbourne cafe.The date slice is divine and there are plenty of cake or tart choices for the sweet tooth.I personally recommend the sourdough bread although it would go a little further if the slices weren't mega thick.
