Barefoot Barista

Barefoot Barista

Situated a mere thong toss from the perfect place to rid your sock tan, Dean and the team are all about balancing chill vibes with dedication to craft as they expertly prepare your Campos coffee. We’d say we love their menu, but more accurately we love being surprised by a cabinet of treats and meals baked daily by Dean’s wife Liz.
