Was able to enjoy early morning coffee each day after a run and a swim. Position is beautiful, staff very friendly, helpful and always cheerful. Light appetising menu available and the best coffee in the area.

Very good food. We chose fish,chips and salad and beef salad. After experiencing the same choice at a near by cafe a few days earlier that was cold and unsatisfactory we were very impressed with this cafe.

Partner had big breakfast and was not disappointed. I had Spinach, poached eggs on sour dough bread with bacon on the side. It was a very generous portion and delicious. The coffee, double shot flat white was very good. Good value!

Randomly chose this cafe for lunch when on holiday to the Sunshine Coast. Best cafe visited, the vege stack was way better than average and the Barramundi also excellent. Pleasant prompt service, good location and good value. Hope we can make it back sometime.

Great little cafe! After reading some average to poor reviews I thought I'd give this cafe a shot. So glad I did! Food was fantastic, ordered butternut pancakes and the portion was huge! Staff was very friendly and food was lovely. Will definitely be returning!

We tried their pasta / pizza night and were really surprised. The Spaghetti Bolognese with Srilankan chilli sauce (on the side) was amazing. The pizzas were good too - so all in all true value for money. Worth a visit. #facxual_events
