About Us


In 2004, Diggies and North Beach Kiosk popped up at Wollongong’s North Beach following a painstaking restoration of the iconic 1930s Art Deco Kiosk by the local Crinis family.

Serving fresh food and great coffee with coastal vibes, Diggies and the Kiosk quickly became a favourite for local families, the active North Beach community, and committed fans of brunch.

Original Co-founder, Stan Crinis, is amazingly proud of Diggies for serving top-quality, local produce. Passionate about health, fitness, and our beautiful beach, Diggies is proud to support and nourish the Illawarra Community.

Diggies has just opened a second venue boasting stunning coastal views, located close to the iconic Kiama Blowhole.

Our Team

What started with a coffee machine and vision over 15 years ago has grown to become a Wollongong institution. The Diggies team now numbers over 90 like-minded people who are passionate about fresh produce, creating experiences and excellent service.
