Sam Allinson


Sam Allinson is the second owner of Surf St Cafe. Both Sam and Kim Robson make the team that have been dubbed the “Two Fat Chefs”.  Sam moved to the region in 2009 and has been a chef for around 7 years now.  He too is a fishing fanatic, so when he is not working he is often wetting a line at one of the local spots.

He loves anything to do with the ocean and enjoys working with all the fresh seafood we stock here at Surf St!!

Kim Robson


Kim is one of Surf St Cafes new owners.  Kim lives in Sandy Beach and moved to the Coffs Coast around ten years ago, prior to which he worked and lived in Sydney or “The Shire” as he say’s.

He has been a chef for 22 years and definately knows a thing or two about cooking a standout meal.

When he is not working you might find him patrolling the local creeks and estuaries, trying to jag the elusive Mangrove Jack.

His favorite past time would have to be giving his business partner and good mate Sam Allinson grief!!

Head down and sample some of the fantastic food Kim is serving up everyday!!



Caity is our gun barista and never forgets the way you like your coffee. She was born in Finley, N.S.W and moved to the region because of everything on offer.

Outside of work she loves spending time with her first kid, by that we mean her staffy pup “Bully”.

Caitys favorite dish on the menu is our corn fritter stack which seems to be a hit with our customers too!!

Why not drop in and have her knock you up a fresh ground Tobies Estate coffee!!
