There’s a spot at the south end of Dee Why we like to call our own. It’s a place where the people are real, where you can kick back and take your time, a place where you can always count on a great coffee, a clear view of the ocean and the smell of good things cooking.

Our story began on a sunny afternoon in 2005 when Ryan Girdler and his wife Katja decided to open up a café….

You might have heard of Ryan. He’s an ex-footy player and a local fixture around these parts. Together with Sebastian, their Colombian partner in crime and their amazing team, they turned a run-down juice bar into a thriving hub of wholesome food and spectacular coffee.

When it comes to food they are all about SIMPLE. HONEST. GOODNESS.
Simple meaning exactly what it says. They use the most simple, wholesome ingredients to create a real, nutritious and tasty menu. Girdlers is proud to use local suppliers and honest ingredients to support the community and embrace sustainability.

Ryan’s passion for all things coffee led him on a journey to discover and source the most delicious mix of handpicked coffee cherries. The result: “The ALL GOOD”.
An ethically sourced, 100% organic four bean blend that is as good for the planet as it is for the soul.

Which brings us to 2017, and a whole new chapter in the Girdlers story. With the Dee Why café renovation complete and the introduction of the new menu a huge success the team is getting ready to step things up.

Stay tuned!
