SUGGESTED CAFE’S AND RESTAURANTS
We recommend the following cafe’s and restaurants whenever you are visiting the Margaret River region before / during / after the event:
The White Elephant
You’d be forgiven for thinking that the White Elephant Cafe’s number one best-seller was the stunning 360 degree views of Gnarabup Bay and we agree it’s worth the visit for that alone, but you’ll soon discover that the food and drinks at the White Elephant Cafe are as superb as the view and you’ll be back time and time again… Open daily for breakfast, lunch and fabulous coffee from 7:30am til 3pm.
Enjoy a drink on the deck as the sunsets over the ocean or grab a seat in the restaurant or bistro and tuck into one of Chef Sean’s tasty menu offerings, there’s a great mix of creative Chef Sean dishes and delicious bistro favourites. Pair your meal with one of the many selections of local wines or craft beers. Pop in from 5pm – 6pm for Happy Hour where you’ll find a range of special prices on both food and beverage including $10 pizza’s and half price kids meals. Open 7 days from 4pm til late.
