We currently have two Book Clubs — one on the first Thursday of each month and another on the second Saturday of each month.
The Saturday Book Club is facilitated by Cate and has an annual charge of $100. This includes your choice of three of the books discussed over the year as well as other membership discounts, such as half price hot drinks on Book Club days.
We're also taking expressions of interest for a Middle School Book Club for students in years 7 - 9. The group will be self-managed with a little support from our bookshop staff.
If you're interested in finding out more about our Book Clubs, please contact Cate on 4194 2111.
If you're looking for that special gift, but don't know what to purchase, our convenient Gift Cards will eliminate the guess work for you. Our Gift Cards can be redeemed in the bookshop, ABC section, or coffee shop. Just ask our friendly staff for assistance.
At Mary Ryan's Hervey Bay, you can choose to dine in air-conditioned comfort in our coffee shop or dine alfresco in our shaded outdoor area. Our coffee shop staff pride themselves on serving the best coffee in Hervey Bay.
Have you tried our new double-walled latte glasses? In both regular and large sizes, they have a vacuum between two layers of glass that keeps the coffee hot while they're cool to touch.
Why not meet a friend at Mary's and try our delicious range of homemade cheese cakes and slices, or let us tempt you with our exclusive selection of cakes, scones, and biscuits? Our sandwiches, wraps, and paninis are all made fresh daily. Whatever your fancy, you won't be disappointed at Mary Ryan's.
We change our selection of cakes and other desserts on a daily basis so there's always something new to try. Our new macchiato and choc mint tarts are highly recommended. We also aim to offer a number of gluten-free choices.
We've recently introduced home-made pastry-free quiches. Just add a side salad for a perfect light lunch.
Group bookings are welcome for special occasions, club meetings, or parties. Please advise our staff in advance for catering purposes so that we can ensure your visit is comfortable and memorable.
Please don't hesitate to call our friendly staff to discuss your requirements.
We look forward to making your visit to Mary Ryan's a pleasurable experience.
