Canteen is actually one of my favorite places for breakfast on the coast! My husband cant get enough of their menu. I usually mix it up when I'm trying things, have tried numerous breakfast options and have a few favorites including: *Cummin Scrambled eggs (add the lamb Kofta) delish! *Grilled Haloumi with creamed spinach - good portion size and full...

We got coffee from this place each day while we were on holiday. We are from Melbourne so finding good coffee was a treat. We didn't eat any food from there, but the coffee was great.

Came to this cafe almost every day for 2 weeks solid during our Summer Holiday. Excellent coffee, fast service (most of the time) and plenty of seating during the busy periods

We have been visiting and staying at Burleigh heads for years and by a process of taste and elimination we have finally found the best coffee in Burleigh at Canteen Coffee. The breakfasts aren't bad either. You may have to wait a bit for your coffee at busy times but believe me, it's worth the wait if you're serious about... More

Dropped in on a Sunday afternoon. The cafe is in two sections. The eat in place is only for MEALS and coffee. If you want coffee you have to make do with some pretty make shift old theatre chairs and metal chairs or some heavy and uncomfortable wooden tables that might look chic, but are less than comfortable. If it... More

Had smashed avocado on toast with poached eggs! Fantastic! Eggs were poached to perfection! Felt a part of the kitchen watching the chefs cook! Very passionate chefs - knew what they were doing, their way of communicating was through their work! Amazing! Have much respect for chefs who can perform well under pressure! Only downside at all is that it... More

Always a pleasure to meet friends here and drink the excellent coffee. Banana cake is good also. Several different styles of seating also whether you want to be around a table, at a table or just lounging in a comfortable chair with your legs stretched out.

Been a few times over the years. The coffee is good but the wait doesn't make sense with all the staff. 50c charge for eftpos under 10 and a cup of tea is 6 dollars. Can't be bothered anymore.
