Fodor's Review

Think of any conceivable way to serve fresh, fat mussels and you'll find it here, in the café established by the original mussel-farming family in the district. Big bold pictures of the aquaculture farms grace the walls. Start with a simple hot-steamed mussel pot, maybe with garlic and wine, or coconut cream and green curry. Or sample grilled mussels in half shells, or fill up on a classic mussel kitchen chowder or fritters. Branch out and simply ask for fish-and-chips, or a generous salad, or burger, or massage the sweet tooth with ice cream. Wash it all down with a natural craft beer brewed on-site by the MK Brewing Company, and after you've mussel-ed up, there's a big tempting cabinet crammed with goodies such as vacuum-packed mussel chowder or smoked mussels that you can purchase for later. Located 4 km (2½ miles) south of Coromandel township.
