Damn fine brekky

It seems to have changed its name to Soul. Good breakfast, great coffee, interesting menu which tries to step a little outside the bacon n eggs mould. Had the eggs benedict and it was very good. As was the side of mushrooms. But can someone tell me why all restaurants in Coffs Harbour require... read more

The old Foreshores Cafe grew bigger and better a year or so ago and evolved with a new branding image under the fresh name of Soul Espresso. Soul has a great young and enthusiastic chef who pumps out some stunningly enjoyable meals suitable for nearly everyone's individual tastes that complements their Coffee and Teas. The interior walls have recently been... More

I used to go to this cafe all the time. But since its changed its terrible. A lot of seafood but if you like that you'll be fine. It's expensive and the service isn't as friendly as it used to be. Very sad to say but wouldn't recommend it at all.

The service is quite slow and on the last 2 occasions that we have eaten there we had to ask for our meals as there had been a mix up with our orders. Very disappointed that they took the old fashioned seating out to try and make it funkier. The old seating was one of the main attractions for us!

Foreshore's is pretty good and serves a good breakfast. Plenty of room; indoor or out and is very often busy. Great range of choice / options at pretty reasonable prices. Coffee is always good but service, while usually very good, can be patchy.

The first time we ever went to this cafe they had just installed a new POS system and were having a nightmare with the orders. Our food was late and missing some things.. then we got half of it again.. just a total disaster. It tasted great though, and the staff were extremely apologetic and nice throughout the whole thing.... More

Visit Coffs on a regular basis and always make a point of visiting Foreshores for brekky, extnesive menu, something for every taste, with a choice of side dishes-mushrooms, smoked salmon, bacon, tomato etc. They make great coffee and the service is excellent. Have also had lunch and dinner there too and they are great also
