The Man Behind the Magic

Nick's journey from the beautiful islands of Fiji to becoming the proud owner of Cafe Loftus is a testament to hard work and a passion for connecting with people.

His dream of becoming a teacher may have shifted, but his dedication to fostering positive experiences remains unchanged. Nick has learned, adapted, and worked hard every day to turn his dream into a reality.

And he's quick to acknowledge the unwavering support of his wife, Priti, who is an integral part of the cafe's success. Together, they're a dynamic team dedicated to providing an exceptional experience.

What's On The Menu?

Cafe Loftus is renowned for its mouth-watering breakfast and lunch options. Nick's French Toast and Pancakes, prepared with love and finesse, are the talk of the town.

The rich flavours and perfect execution make them a must-try for anyone in the Sutherland Shire area. Whether you prefer sweet or savoury, Cafe Loftus has something to satisfy every craving.

Went for lunch yesterday with friends, it was our first time and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

The menu is quite varied and it took us a while to decide what to have because there was a lot to choose from and everything sounded good."

Cafe Loftus Customer

We chowed down on the halloumi stack, corn fritters and one of their most popular and "ever so classic" eggs benedict. You can't go wrong with an eggs benny!

When lunch rolls around it's very hard to choose. There's wraps, burgers, BLT's, gourmet open melts, fish and chips and their famous gourmet pies.

Nick recommends his BLT's and the bacon wrap!

If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life it would be bacon! I absolutely love it haha! I literally couldn't live without it"

The Art of a Coffee Community

One cannot speak of Cafe Loftus without mentioning the coffee. Nick's obsession with technology extends to the art of coffee-making, and it's evident in every cup served.

Best coffee in the Shire by a mile! Delicious meals, friendly staff. We love Cafe Loftus!"
