 Three Blue Ducks Bronte

Known for their good and honest ‘real food’, Three Blue Ducks is a local favourite thanks to their quality coffee and fresh, seasonal produce. Their bacon and egg roll has a classic punch of flavour, served with pimento salsa and hollandaise sauce. The café even has house-made halloumi, with grilled zucchini, tomato, capsicum and chilli bruschetta. Located close to the surf and ocean breeze, this café has a great story behind them. It all started with three close friends travelling the world and discovering sustainable approaches to living – and then Three Blue Ducks was hatched! With a shared passion for ethical food, cooking, surfing and fishing, the café embodies all the great traits that exist in Bronte.
