The Butter Factory
A 30-minute drive from Huskisson, but well worth the effort, The Butter Factory in Pyree is set in the middle of dairy country. This gem of a place dates back to 1889 when it was, in fact, a butter factory, now a must-book restaurant where husband and wife duo source produce from their garden and local growers to deliver rustic, seasonal country-style dishes. It’s open for lunch and dinner and full-licensed.

A vegetarian café with a cult following, Pilgrims is now a five-strong mini-chain, and lucky for Jervis Bay locals, they have opened a café in the middle of Huskisson. A breakfast menu that will have the most loyal of carnivores ditching their regular go-to’s, while burgers, pies, wraps and toasties fill the lunchtime offering. Adding a little spice to the weekend (and things to do in Jervis Bay), Pilgrims is open for dinner on Friday and Saturdays with a Mexican-themed menu with sangrias by the jug.

The Huskisson Hotel
Along the water’s edge, The Huskisson Hotel has been the local go-to pub for almost 100 years. Serving pub classics and icy cold beers, this upscale pub is the perfect place for sundowners, a good feed and live music, making this a popular thing to do in Jervis Bay. If you are looking to visit for dinner, come in a bit earlier to experience the sunset. Nab a seat on the deck, and you’ll have front row seats to watching the pastel colours streak the sky.

5 Little Pigs
The self-awarded “happiest little café on the planet”, 5 Little Pigs is the crowning jewel of Owen Street. This industrial-styled café provides their customers with coastal hospitality, from the friendly staff and consistently good brews to the solid menu of modern Aussie classics and fusion favourites. From breakfast staples to burgers for lunch – but with a 5 Little Pigs twist.
