Penny Whistlers

Kiama NSW

Cheree and Pete are a husband and wife team who have been working in hospitality for over 15 years. They ran an extremely successful cafe in Paddington, Sydney, for over 5 years. They won many awards along the way and gained a stella reputation for quality coffee and food. After selling their cafe in 2014 they moved down to Kiama, an area they have always loved, with their two girls. They love the south coast and the people who make up its community. Pete's love of music will be a feature of the cafe, playing vinyl all day from his vast collection. Penny Whistlers is open 7 days serving new takes on old favourites for breakfast and lunch, created by experienced Illawarra chef Rylee Cole. They look forward to working with the amazing produce on offer in south coast. We are looking forward to summer, where we will start opening nights serving comfort food dishes, craft beers and fine wines.
