Mervyn Roy’s

Hidden along Golden Four Drive in Bilinga, Mervyn Roy’s is undoubtedly a secret shared among coffee-loving locals in the know. Forget paying upwards of $5 for a small takeaway coffee, here, they’re $3 with the medium only $3.50. The quaint retro venue kind of resembles your cool great aunt’s dining room with an eclectic mishmash of old-school laminate tables, mismatched vinyl chairs and vintage nik naks filling every nook and cranny. The cafe is family affair for Elle Paxton and Shannon Taylor, along with Elle’s father Gary, brother Niall and his partner Rikki and is named after Elle’s pop, who you can find gracing the back gallery wall. While we could spend all day chatting about the cool surrounds, it would be remiss not to mention the nosh. The all-day breakfast menu offers simple yet delicious homestyle dishes ranging from smashed avocado on a bed of roasted sweet potato through to fancy bacon and egg rolls and breakfast burritos. If time is not on your side, there are some seriously stuffed sandwiches ready to grab and go in the front counter. The scones are also one of the venue’s top sellers and one peek at the deliciously fluffy innards, it’s not hard to see why. If you haven’t yet met Mervyn, we reckon it’s about time you did.
