I had the cafe's namesake, 'Raw Energy' smoothie & although it was delicious, it wasn't very smooth. I kept getting small surprise chunks of fruit which personally, I'm not a big fan of. I went with a couple of friends & we ordered smoothies to go. They took a while to come out & one of my friends didn't even... More

Definitely recommend the pancakes with lashings of beautiful berries & banana served with a small scoop of ice cream. Great atmosphere - good position in Cotton Tree to watch the world go by. Excellent service..

The smoothies were not smooth, some people may like that but not me. Flavour was good but texture bad. We only ordered takeaway smoothies and they took a long time to come out, on top of that they forgot my friends order so she had to ask them again to make it.

We took our family and friends to raw energy for breakfast and were appalled by the service. Coffee orders were wrong when they arrived at the table and we were refused to use our free coffee card (even though we had bought enough coffees to revive a free one) we were told to use it next time we were there,...

Often stop here for breakfast when I am up the coast. Food is ok. Nothing mind blowing. Coffee is terrible so I generally get that elsewhere. Nice juices. Pretty standard raw energy franchise really.

A bad experience is not necessarily a reason to write a review however . . . Raw Energy Cafe in Cotton Tree (near Maroochydore) is best avoided. Orders were lost, our's and other's and food when it finally arrived - an hour after ordering - was well below par. There are plenty of good cafes nearby, avoid Raw Energy and... More

Went there yesterday and ordered a juice and some avo on toast Juice was incredible however the avo on toast was indeed not what i had asked for. I am a huge hater of onion and avoid all dishes with it in. I thought avo on toast would be a safe option as it stated:avo on sourdough with feta-no word... More

Great clean food in a funky setting. The acai bowl was one of the best I've had. They mainly do vegetarian food, but a few things come with bacon. Breakfast and lunch only

We only stopped by for a drink and decided on a smoothie. Unfortunately we made a poor choice. I ordered one banana & one berries, both of them were written to have ice cream, milk & ice. They were terrible!! Unfortunately neither had flavour because of the ratio of ice used. Try thickening them with ice cream instead, they may... More
