Ocean view cafe great for breakfast or coffee

We called in for breakfast and we're thrilled with the menu choices and prices were more than reasonable.They happily made a few little changes for me-maybe the best buttermilk pancakes on the coast and they added some fresh fruit for me.

We ordered 2 main mails and a kids meal (chicken burger). The kids meal came out quickly and looked amazing. The only problem was the the chicken had been marinated in a spicy sauce and was not suitable for children at all. I took a bite and my mouth was burning. They replaced the meal without a fuss to a... More

My wife and I and daughter Mia frequent Sunrise at least every two weeks. The food is simply amazing. As locals we have tried every restaurant in Coolum. Entree's are original, Mains are perfect and the deserts are devine. A true five star restaurant without small portions and stale atmosphere. We highly recommend the Waggu. At least grade 7 steaks...

Sunrise Cafe is popukar with locals and tourists due to its great location. Right in the midst of a small coastal town it is just the place for a brunch or drinks with friends later in the day.

This was a great little find! Phenomenal breakfast, located across the road from Coolum Beach. We both had the eggs benedict, him with bacon and me with ham. Comes with asparagus wrapped in prosciutto - nice touch and delish! Watermelon, orange and mint juice to wash it down - fantastic start to the day. Would have given it a 5,... More

I ate dinner twice here recently with my two young children whilst on holidays. My husband had back to Brisbane early and so it was just me and the 3 and 6 year old. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. It seems quite casual from the outside, but actually the food was top notch. The kids menu was good... More

We have just arrived back from a lovely weekend at Coolum. We had breakfast both mornings at Sunrise Cafe (right next door to our accommodation) and the food was gorgeous as was the coffee. On the first morning I had bacon and eggs with sides of tomatoes and mushrooms. It was so fresh and top quality produce and the mushrooms... More

Staying at resort above Sunrise so logical place for a coffee or breakfast. However, it was not just the fact it was close as the view is great over Coolum Beach and the 2 breakfasts we had excellent. Coffee also great. Considered dinner but atmosphere did not seem as appealing in the evening and probably just a bit of work... More

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
