Victoria’s Coffee and Snack Cart opened at the start of the current pandemic.

By S Haslam

The pandemic, and the beautiful spring weather, has made Wategos even more popular than ever, and now visitors have the chance to get some delicious, healthy, natural and local snacks (or just a danish and local coffee, for $7!) at what must be the most exclusively-located pop-up coffee cart around at Victoria’s At Wategos.

I was there this week, on a beautiful day, and one of the benefits of having the excellent coffee under their shady pandanus, apart from the sparkling waves in the distance, is the entertainment provided by the spectacle of the Wategos competitive parking event.

Victoria’s Coffee and Snack Cart opened at the start of the current pandemic, a sign that pretty much everyone has had to adapt and diversify this time around. But it’s got a pretty good location, nestled in the lush grounds just 50 metres from the beach under the famous Cape Byron Lighthouse, and it also has the same kind of thoughtfulness in supporting the local community, and locally-sourced healthy food choices, that you might expect. If you’re after an iceblock, their Pure Pops are all natural tropical ice pops. Cofounder Georgi Larby did her hospitality internship with Victoria’s and now runs this successful local business. The coffee is the only locally grown coffee around (Zentveld’s), who have been supplying Victoria’s since they started, almost 30 years ago with the first Victoria’s at Ewingsdale.

The free-range eggs in the Bacon and Egg Rolls come straight from Victoria’s own chooks, and you can get homemade treats like tahini cookies, or danish pastries baked on the premises each day.

Of course, it’s never been a better time to stay the healthiest you possibly can, and as far as I could see on my recent visit, Wategos is the home to some of the healthiest-looking people on the planet. The cart stocks acai bowls and protein shakes if you are looking for something extra health-conscious. To take it up a notch even further, the cart is also an outlet for BBOSS (Byron Bay Organic Supplement Services), a new local business producing gym and lifestyle supplements – vegan and organic where possible.

And as for parking, you can drive right in for full driveway service, order online via the HEY YOU app, or phone ahead for immediate pick up. Open seven days a week from 7am until 4pm.
