An old general store houses Avoca institution Like Minds. There’s a good reason why sitting at this cafe feels like sitting in your own living room. Local couple James Rolph and Melissa Morgan apply the same sustainable ethos they live by at home to their business.

Few eateries can truly call themselves zero waste, but Like Minds comes very close. All food and coffee scraps are fed to the backyard chooks, worm farms and the compost.

The house blend and rotating single origins are roasted by Sasha Jade from Sydney’s Fat Poppy Specialty Coffee. Morgan describes the flavour profile as “chocolate-coated blueberry”.

The no-fuss menu uses local, and where possible, organic produce. All condiments and pickles are made in-house.
