The café is the work of Executive Chef Samuel Commins and his wife Monica and is the result of a lifestyle sea change for their family.
Samuel Commins told News Of The Area, “In my career I have been head chef and executive Chef at venues such as the prestigious Fairmont Resort and the Carrington Hotel in the Blue Mountains.”
The Tea and Bean on Shearwater Drive at Taylors Beach opens early at 7am to serve the “tradies” breakfast, with everything made fresh to order, Monday to Friday.
Orders are delivered within 6-10 minutes of being placed and can be customised.
The compact kitchen doesn’t compare with a five star resort but the quality of the food that the Tea and Bean is turning out speaks for itself.
The café takes elements from Samuels various roles in hospitality and delivers a menu which can be described as eclectic and quirky with everything from a bacon and egg roll and burgers to delicious vegan and gluten free treats.
The coffee and chocolate offerings are divine reflecting Samuel’s time working at a designer chocolate factory and café in Sydney’s Emu Plains.
The variety of refreshing and energising boutique coffee, teas and treats are sure to please the most discerning palate.
The family is enjoying their move to the Bay and the Tea and Bean Café is becoming a popular stop for locals, who can enjoy the wonderful café style food in the sunny courtyard or tucked cosily inside the café.
