Great spot for a hearty breakfast

Both the food and service are well above average at the Bellakai. However, it's the beachside location that's hard to beat. We enjoyed various styles of eggs with bacon and mushrooms, but the menu has choices for everyone.

We had heard amazing reviews about Bellakai and we left feeling disappointed. The service started off ok but went down hill fast as the restaurant started filling up, I ordered a cocktail and no not flash for the price the mock tails looked better, after our mains were cleared we never got offered another drink or dessert menu after sitting...

Attention to detail and friendly service are a hallmark of this little gem. We chose a seafood platter to share - on the 'spot on' advise of the waiter. The food was delicious. We had earlier enjoyed a late breakfast here with the grand kids in tow - and, as above, the service was first class. The two young girls... More

Visited for breakfast with our toddler. The place was busy but we were seated quickly and bub was given a spoon & small cup of diced fruit which kept her entertained while we waited. The coffee was good and arrived quickly but we had a fairly long wait for our meals, even as numbers dropped off. Darling husband had the... More

We stayed next door to this restaurant, so it was very convenient to just drop in when we needed a snack. We had afternoon tea here and also breakfast. Both were very good. The staff are super friendly and cannot do enough for you. The coffee is great and very popular with people constantly ordering in the early morning.

How often do you go out for special breakfast and think it was nothing particularly special? Don't despair, if you're in Coolangatta we had the best breakfast at Bellakai this morning. Sweetheart had a long black and the halloumi with bacon, and I had a delicious healthy smoothie plus the halloumi with bacon and mushrooms. The breakfast menu was extensive.... More

I live in northern NSW and will often drop into Bellakai for a takeaway coffee or lunch on my way to Brisbane. This cafe/restaurant is worth a detour off the highway. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. The coffee is in my opinion the best on the coast and the food is delicious. Always a pleasurable experience!
