East Coast Commune – family friendly cafe in Marine Cove

Located in East Past Park, East Coast Commune is more hip chic than hippie commune. The new cafe in Marine Cove is a family friendly space with inviting interiors, good coffee and palatable cafe fare.

East Coast Commune

Marine Cove is a hot spot in East Coast Park. There is a large open-air playground for children and McDonald’s is there. A new tenant at Marine Cove is East Coast Commune, which describes itself as a spot of comfort for specialty coffee, cold pressed juices, hearty sandwiches, fresh bakes and more.

The cafe is located in a seaside park and the interior design reflects its lush waterside location. It is spacious, has high ceiling and is well lit. Wooden and rattan furniture, green plants and tapestries on the walls make the place feel cosy and homely.

We visited East Coast Commune for brunch and ordered a “Char Mee” ($19) and a Berries Ricotta ($14). Latte and Cappuccino was $5 each.

Water was served as soon as were seated. The staff came by regularly to top up our glasses. Our food arrived within about 10 minutes.

East Coast Commune's Char Mee

East Coast Commune’s Char Mee was linguine with black garlic and smoked barramundi. It looked like stir-fried mee tai mak. The smoked fish was salted and had a rather nice texture and taste. There was complexity in the dish with sweet savoury and earthy flavours. Overall it was quite tasty.

East Coast Commune's Berries Ricotta

The Berries Ricotta was sourdough waffle with fresh berries, berries compote with ricotta cheese and lemon honey ricotta. Ricotta, the smooth whey cheese with a creamy mild taste and a thick texture, is now almost a staple in cafe dishes. It is found in abundance in East Coast Commune’s Berries Ricotta – so if you like ricotta you will like the dish. The sourdough waffle was not big. The standard cafe dish was nice but not particularly special, other than the generous amount of ricotta in the mix.

coffee made with La Marzocco expresso

The coffee made with La Marzocco expresso machine was luxuriously creamy. It was robust and slightly bitter. Both the latte and cappucino were enjoyable.

East Coast Commune has managed to create a refined yet casual space. With good coffee and nice comfort food and friendly good service, it is easy to like the place. East Coast Commune, opened at the end of 2020, is already one of the most popular spots in East Coast Park. It is a family friendly cafe but can also be an ideal place for the solo diner and dating couples. It is chic and charming and can appeal to both the hip and hippie.

When you are alone, bless the solitude; when you are with someone, bless the togetherness! Think of the seagull: It flies alone happily; it flies with another happily too! Solitude is a food; togetherness is a food; man needs both and he must be happy with both! -Mehmet Murat Ildan
