Peter and Karen Sinclair are the proud owners of the Lighthouse Beach Cafe.  The doors opened Boxing Day 2013 to offer the locals and the visitors of Ballina  a wonderful dining experience with the best views in Ballina. 

Karen is a true local, her family has long been established in the town and contributed much to the growing community.  Peter is a Sydney boy but has settled into the seaside town like he was born here! 

Our head chef is local boy Scott Bennett and his team offer over 20yrs experience in the industry.

Our coffee is from the local town of Maclean.  Botero has become a household name in the area and is a fabulous coffee.

The view from the balcony is sensational any time of the year.  It is a perfect place for a wedding or any function that you require.  You are able to use the cafe on it's own, the surf club's function rooms or combine the two!!  Please call and chat to Karen who is eager to help you organise your event. Ph. 02 6686 4380

Down below the cafe on the beach we have our Kiosk which is open from 7am to provide you with takeaway coffee for that early morning walk on the beach.  The kids can also grab ice-creams or a milkshake which is always a must on a day at the beach.  Hot Food can also be ordered through the kiosk.  It is cooked upstairs in the cafe and brought downstairs to you.
