Formerly known as the Bayview Kiosk for many years, Chris changed the cafe name to "Stowaway - Cafe on Pittwater" in 2011.

We're hidden away on the waterfront in Bayview - Bayview's best kept secret.

All food is fresh and prepared to order, and there is a wide selection of choices on our menu.  Our coffee is supplied by local company Witham's Coffee, who make the "Stowaway Blend", a favourite with our regulars.



Your host, Chris Bowden
