a laid-back space for food lovers

Wild Orchid is a relaxed, contemporary cafe serving simple, vibrant seasonal food, using the best possible ingredients. Dine in for breakfast, byo wine with lunch, or enjoy a coffee or smoothie, a take-away wrap or a healthy treat – all made from scratch by us.


From the laid-back beachy vibe and cool modern finishes, to the carefully sourced ingredients, Wild Orchid is an eating house destined to become your favourite haunt on the Sapphire Coast. Wild Orchid is a space where everyone can feel welcome and which reflects the easy Tathra lifestyle. We feel we produce a quality experience equal to any café in any city in Australia.

Born and raised on the Sapphire Coast, chef Row Ellard honed her skills in kitchens across Sydney and London. Row always knew she would return home to create her own eating-house, a space that would reflect and enhance her beloved coastal lifestyle. Wild Orchid has an elegant, healthy, calm vibe that mirrors Row's philosophy: "I find great pleasure cooking with simple ingredients, and my reward is the pleasure I see in my customers' faces"

The Coffee: Wild Rye's Coffee is roasted proudly in Pambula by barista Erin. Fresh roasting in their beautiful German Probat machine creates a superior flavour we love here at Wild Orchid.
