Visiting caloundra and looking for lunch. Extensive menu. $58 for three and we were impressed with food. Had a green smoothie which had rather odd flavour only negative. pleasantly surprised at a decent strength coffee. Seen a shingle Inn in mall on gc but never tried before. We had sliders Caesar sandwich and burger with fries.

The team are friendly, coffee not bad and there's lots of variety on the menu. We enjoy visiting. Cakes and lunches are always good.

Visited this restaurant on the hottest day of the year and despite the heat the staff were friendly and the service good. Our visit was mid morning for breakfast/Brunch and the meals were good size portions, well presented flavoursome.

We were staying in the Monaco apartments and on our last morning with time short decided on breakfast out. As others have said service was fast, accurate and friendly. The healthy breakfast was delicious, top marks for the spinach and the coffee smooth. Great spot.
