Wonderful lunch

We have just enjoyed a superb lunch at Sunrise Cafe. Grilled fish of the day and the Wagyu beef. Could not fault the meals or service.

Just out of town with tables that look onto the beach. I had a coffee and eggs on toast. Belaroma beans (blend was a little boring) and coffee was well prepared although overfilled. Eggs on toast were quite good. Staff seemed disinterested but overall the cafe is good value with plenty of price points to pick from on the menu.

Nothing special about the food but a good relaxing atmosphere for tourists to feel the best of the coast. Well located near most accommodation, only a block from most of the stores and opposite the beach with an open dining section. Probably better at lunch than dinner so that you can enjoy the warmth and light for the views.

In my opinion this restaurant is not as brilliant as others in Coolum. The staff are friendly enough but I have visited there five or six times,( I always allow several visits in case the chef has had a bad day). But in my opinion the meals did not meet my expectations for price.

I had coffees, juice, a Bircher musli and a big vege breakfast. Fairly standard meals but the combination of flavours just hit the spot perfectly. Soo well it went down I went back the next morning

We hadn't being there for a while but tried it for breakfast. Food was great. Good place to relax and have a coffee, while you read the complimentary newspapers
