The shops in Coffee Bay only stock basic essentials for the most part. You can find basics like pasta, sauces, flour, bread, eggs, and basic toiletries as well. There are several small shops or a slightly larger one called Bomvu River Store with plenty of snacks, canned foods, cool drinks, and other sundries. There is a major store as you come into Coffee Bay that sells everything else that you can not find in Coffee Bay. We recommend doing your shopping there as you come into Coffee Bay.
