In addition to'old-world' style food, including Baltimore's finest crab cakes, the restaurant housed a large collection of fine art, which decorated the walls; the art had been acquired over the years by William Henry Haussner and Frances Wilke Haussner, who bought their first painting in 1939, "Venetian Flower Vendor," by Eugene de Blaas. Over the next 73 years, the Haussners acquired over 100 pieces, including important works by 19th-century European and American masters; the restaurant was closed in 1999, the collection, which included pieces from the estates of J.

Wamberal is a coastal suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales, just north of Terrigal. It is part of the Central Coast Council local government area and is located adjacent to the Wamberal Lagoon. Wamberal is the next suburb from Terrigal, with the two suburbs being separated by the Terrigal Lagoon Estuary; the suburb has two distinct areas. The latter contains coastal acreages and ridges of bushland which are legislated non-development areas in order to retain the area's ecosystem; the main thoroughfare through the suburb is the Central Coast Highway through the north and south known as The Entrance Road. Since 2008, the roadway has undergone developments at an estimated cost of A$100 million into a four lane dual carriageway from Matcham to the north end of the suburb. Servicing the suburb from the south-east is Ocean View Drive, linking Wamberal to Terrigal. Wamberal has small clusters of high-end cafes and boutique stores dotted along the beach front strip, Ocean View Drive, on nearby streets.
In 2009 the Wamberal Surf Life Saving Club was redeveloped to accommodate a cafe and award winning restaurant, in addition to new function rooms and surf life saving amenities. Wamberal has a Country Club, "Breakers", commemorating ANZAC efforts, it is scheduled for a redevelopment from 2011 onwards. There is a government primary school in the rural sector of the suburb, teaching kindergarten through grade six. At the 2011 census, there were 6,298 people in the suburb of Wamberal, of these 48.8% were male and 51.2% were female. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people made up 1.3% of the population. The median age of people in Wamberal was 38 years. Children aged 0 – 14 years made up 21.4% of the population and people aged 65 years and over made up 13.9% of the population, compared to 14.0% being the national median of people aged over 65 years.

Meanwhile, as at the Census date, compared to the national average, households in Wamberal had a lower than average proportion where two or more languages are spoken; the prestige of Wamberal's property has increased in recent years due to leafy and family friendly streets, shrinking availability of land, the suburb's proximity to local amenities including public transport and industrial areas, education while still remaining distant.
This motif was heralded in 2008 by the passing in at auction of a 1940s bungalow on a double block of beach front land at A$7.2 million. The property has since been redeveloped, believed to be worth in excess of $10 million, which would make it the most valuable home on the Central Coast; this practice of redevelopment of property within Wamberal is shifting property prices further upmarket and moving the suburb further into the limelight with wealthier home buyers. This shift may be due to the redevelopment of local amenities such as playgrounds and community spaces such as parks, some of which were initiated under the Nation Building Scheme of the Rudd Government's Economic Stimulus Policy. In September 2010, the median house price for Wamberal was $1.1 million
