As locals we visit almost weekly. Love the view, atmosphere is chilled out, lovely friendly staff, nice food from small healthy eats to mains. We often pop in for happy hour and feel very relaxed and always inspired by the view along beautiful Coolum beach. This is a MUST visit cafe in Coolum - don,t miss out. Thanks Sunrise team

Sunrise cafe is just a stroll away from our accommodation in Coolum, we went for dinner at dusk and it is a pleasant place to sit overlooking the boardwalk and the water. The atmosphere is relaxed but the ambience is a little more sophisticated than some other options in Coolum. The food was delicious and the service friendly.

This little gem is becoming more popular with the local community(and it appears tourists also), who are finally discovering the quality service, food, view and relaxed atmosphere Sunrise has to offer. We have had functions, get together with friends as well as regular family lunches weekly. Luv it!! 9.9/10

Not fine dining but good seaside atmosphere, good views to the ocean unlike most cafes on the main strip which have no views. Reasonable food for the style of café. Better at breakfast or lunch to see the views as it is quite dark at dinner time.

Had a takeaway coffee and it was good - fast service and made to what was ordered, very close to the hotel which was great for convenience. Would have liked to have had a meal there had we had more time.

This was the best food we had whilst in Australia. Beautifully prepared meals, we are real foodies and could not find fault at all. Try the Waygu, totally amazing!

I arrived at the restaurant and immediately was sorted out with a perfectly made Gin&Tonic and welcomed to sit anywhere I wanted. There was only one vegetarian meal on the menu and the waitress was very confident in helping arrange a few alternate choices. We ordered the salmon with coddled egg and watercress and a variety of tapas, paired with... More
