The team at Spacifica Travel are Norfolk Island experts, who have the inside scoop on some of the best restaurants, cafés and dining experiences on Norfolk Island.
A great breakfast kick starts a great day for Norfolk Island exploring. If a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of toast sounds like your perfect breakfast, then you should consider choosing Norfolk Island accommodation with self-catering facilities. Equipped with a fridge, toaster, microwave and a kettle, these properties are great if you’re not fussed with dining out. If you’re looking for a fuss-free breakfast option, consider looking for a Norfolk Island package deal that includes breakfast, or breakfast supplies in the package price. These packages are perfect for anyone that likes to wake up, eat and get straight into their Norfolk Island adventures.
For those that enjoy sitting down at a café, there are a number of great options on the island. In the centre of Burnt Pine you’ll find The Golden Orb Café and The Olive Café. Both are firm favourites with the locals, and have a warm and welcoming atmosphere. You’ll find their menus written on a blackboard or butcher paper, filled with dishes made from fresh and seasonal ingredients. A little further down the road is The Boatshed at Governor’s Lodge, where you can find all your favourite breakfast items in a relaxed, nautical setting.

Breakfast Bushwalk & Clifftop Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you may as well make it the most exciting. For those that like to get up and go, then the Breakfast Bushwalk is for you. Enjoy a stroll through the national park, either along the Bridle Track, or along the scenic Mount Bates (the highest point on the island) to the Captain Cook monument. Along the way you’ll learn about the local flora and the bird life on the island and, at the end, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic ocean views and a hunger-busting breakfast.
The Clifftop Breakfast tour is perfect if you want to skip the bushwalk and enjoy a sleep in. Join the walkers at the Captain Cook Monument and share in spectacular views, the festivities and a delicious barbecue breakfast.

The other is in a breathtaking coastal location on the western side property ‘Orn Dar Cliff’. Be sure to ask us if you need help deciding!
