I had my take away cappu there early in the afternoon. It was always of excellent quality and the barista had some time to have a chat. The Good Bean reveals also which beans go into the cappu as well as their cupping score. This is quite unusual.

Fabulous coffee but there is usually a wait early in the mornings. Still you cannot beat their coffee and they are reasonably priced for Mooloolaba. They often offer cakes with the coffee in the afternoons.

It's a hard call & definitely a personal opinion but I think that The Good Bean is the 2nd best place to have coffee in Mooloolaba. The Columbian on Brisbane Rd gets my highest vote but the GB is a close 2nd. But don't take my word for it, try both & decide for yourself! Or do what I do... More

Call me a coffee snob but when I sit in for a coffee I enjoy a cup, saucer and spoon. Being so close to the ocean I would have assumed more respect for our environment. 2 stars because at least it was hot.

In all the years I've been holidaying in Mooloolaba good coffee has always been hard to come by, until now. Finally this hole in the wall coffee shop has managed to do what none of the other coffee places have been able to do ... serve consistently good coffee made just how the customer has ordered it. Well done Good... More

There are really only 3 places in Mooloolaba that I found to have high quality coffee for the real coffee nuts out there - like me:) and Good Bean was one of those. Free wifi and ice cold water available added to the benefits of grabbing an excellent coffee here,
