Always packed with locals and an enjoyable diverse range of breakfast options - perhaps more traditional than say Little Lane but a nice friendly relaxing environment. An added benefit is that it is pet friendly and dogs are made welcome outside.

The Caf has always been my pick for lunch in Coolum way back from when it first opened and I would pop in to use the internet whenever it broke at home! Love their strong coffee and healthy lunch options and convenience to my local supermarket :)
