Great experience

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... read 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

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.
