This little cafe has terrific food and coffee. Lovely breakfast menu means it's a great place to meet in the morning or for a family brekkie. Lots of tasty treats - home made and a terrific blackboard menu of fresh options are always available as well as the usual menu. Worth a visit if you are in Coolum and opposite... More

Hidden off the main esplanade, this is a place the locals wish to keep to themselves. Great coffee and food, and value for money.

This is where the locals go for good coffee and food. The classic eggs Benedict is one of the best I have eaten and they do a good coffee. The service is pretty good and there is a good buzz to the place. I always recommend this place to my friends.

Was looking for an early start to the day but The Caf was already packed - a very popular local café. They have changed the menu since my last visit and they had a few interesting choices - the Arabian eggs looked interesting but then I spied a "retro" dish - mince on toast. Hadn't had this in years but... More

I have been getting the Thai chicken pie for a take away lunch twice a week now for the best part of 5 years and it is delicious. There is real chicken pieces and there is just enough spice to make the pie very tasty. They don't make them but source them from a secret location. The coffee is also... More

Just had lunch with a girlfriend here and both our meals were outstanding. I had the fish tacos and they were zesty and fresh, my friend had the chickpea patties with salad which looked scrumptious. Already planning my next lunch date!

This was a winner! All breakfast meals at a table of four friends were fantastic, and a small problem with one of the meals was dealt with promptly and with a big friendly smile. Coffees came out phenomenally quickly, as did meals, and the barista is definitely one to keep! Really impressed! Would definitely return.

C@f in Birtwill Street at Coolum Beach is where locals gather with family & friends for good healthy food, coffee & cake. Going there regularly standards never drop & there are always great choices on display in addition to those on the menu. Order inside & find a casual seat outside. Worth a visit.
