WAXED Coffee is Hossegor’s speciality coffee shop.
Whilst there are many cool places to hang out in Hossegor, Waxed is one of my favourites.
Launched by two Welsh guys Cai and Will in June 2016, WAXED has the cool vintage industrial feel of a coffee place from East London (think Bricklane or Shoreditch) with a surfing & skating vibes.
Located in the centre of Hossegor, Waxed is also one of the few coffee places that are opened all year like Billabong, Ripcurl and Quiksilver, where I finally found the black parka of my dreams (I got mine size 16 yo).
I first went there in 2016 when they had just opened and went back again last week once Mila’s competition was finished.
There are many things I love about this place…
The food is great. They have plenty of healthy, vegan and gluten-free options.
You can expect a perfect latte (€3.50) or a flat white (€3.85) made with Allpress beans – available with soy, almond or oat milk.
For breakfast or lunch, you can enjoy enormous avocado toasts with poached eggs, good chia pudding with fruit or even a perfect slice of homemade carrot cake with generous amounts of icing.
I had poached eggs on toast with avocado last week and it was very tasty and enjoyable!
I also loved how they did the place up.
With its white walls and grey floorboards, space is where Scandi minimalism meets beachside laidback.
While a few upcycled tables, coffee tables made from pallets and mismatched school chairs add warmth to the place.
It’s unpretentious, homely and inviting.
In addition, they have a cool selection of Afends surf ware, an Aussie brand I discovered in Bali last year.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this. Have you been to Hossegor or Waxed alreadY? Would love to hear your thoughts…
