For an incredible lunch, brunch or all-day brekkie right by the coast, you can’t beat Sam I Am Café in delightful Christies Beach.

From the street, a humble façade belies what tasty goodness lies within, and it’s not until you step through the door that you’ll realise what a hidden gem this place really is.

Relaxed, chilled out vibes combine with incredible aromas of barista-made coffee and freshly baked goodies coming from the kitchen, and you’ll definitely feel at home the moment you arrive.

With a strong focus on simple-yet-delicious food made from locally-sourced ingredients - and everything made fresh onsite - choosing just one thing from the menu is difficult, but certainly not a chore.

Take your pick from a range of scrumptious breakfasts including fluffy buttermilk pancakes or bacon & egg rolls, or be tempted by something from their rotating range of seasonal specials. The chai spiced oats are definitely a highlight, while their mouth-watering rendition of the classic Rueben sandwich truly is outta-this-world good.

And when it comes to incredible coffee, they’ve got that covered too. Using beans roasted to perfection by local supplier Dawn Patrol, start your day with a nice strong brew, or go ahead and try one of the yummy fruit smoothies, milkshakes or freshly squeezed juices also on offer.

Sam I Am Café in Christies Beach, open for breakfast, brunch and lunch six days a week. Trust us - once you know, you definitely have to go.
