Looking for pizza in Port Macquarie that will have your mind drifting off to the streets of Florence, Rome and Milan? How about a breakfast venue that serves the best coffee with a wide range of pastries and dishes made from the finest local produce? Fortunately you can find the best of both worlds at Hastings Coffee Co., located on the banks of the gorgeous Hastings River at The Westport Club.
Australians love their food, there’s no doubt about that. And is it any wonder? We live in a country that has the perfect mix of world-class locally made produce plus the influence of a multitude of foreign cuisines. English fish and chips, Indian curries and Chinese stir fries have captured our imaginations and our tastebuds. But it’s Italian pizzas that have arguably had the biggest impact on the Australian culinary landscape. It could be the ease of eating that is so appealing. Perhaps it’s the incredible array of ingredients you can use. Or maybe it’s a magical mix of many other factors that has made pizza Australia’s favourite food import. Whatever it is, Hastings Coffee Co. has captured the essence of what makes a great pizza and transferred it to their own pizza menu. You can choose from:
- The Carnivore – salami, pepperoni, smoked ham, beef, pastrami, BBQ sauce
- The Hawaiian – prosciutto ham, pineapple, mushrooms, garlic, fresh rocket
- The Mid-North Coast – tiger prawns, truffle salami, tarragon, baby spinach
- The Harvest – roast pumpkin, feta, basil, caramelised onion, pine nuts, pomegranate molasses
Each pizza is so delicious you may have to order more than one, or come back again and again until you’ve tried them all. And even then you may not have decided which one you like the best!
