The Beach Shed

The Beach Shed Dee Why - 'a fresh food cafe where sandy feet are allowed'.

About The Beach Shed

In one small space, metres away from the waves at Dee Why, you can buy a smoothie, a cinnamon scroll and surf wax. Or a pie, a Persian orange cake and one of the arty beach pool photos displayed on the wall.

Framed in the front window, facing the swell where surfers rise and fall, two baristas wrangle the bright yellow espresso machine to keep up with demand. The big glass counter is stuffed with food to go, a mixture of staples - sandwiches, ham and cheese croissants, filo rolls, banana bread - plus more refined offerings like salted caramel and chocolate tart and gluten-free cranberry health slice. The drinks menu runs from milkshakes to the obligatory green juices.

Tucked away down the southern end of the beach, this shed used to store the surf club's boats.
