Have just been on a visit to the Gold Coast for a few weeks and stumbled on this cafe while walking around Burleigh. I really enjoyed the friendly service of the staff and the food was amazing. Although I tried many dishes on the menu I especially enjoyed the chicken burger with flat bread. They also serve some of the... More

Canteen Coffee is at the Park Ave end of a pretty arcade that runs down to James St. Next door is Canteen Kitchen. Together, they are a formidable duo.The Canteen provides in-house or take-away drinks and also services the cafe next door. The coffee is the best we found on the coast and the food at the cafe, with its... More

I've had many a coffee from canteen coffee as they really know their stuff but I'd been meaning to try breakfast and I have to say it was as impressive and delicious as their coffee! They do some normal Aussie stuff well but with a different twist and my partner had the lamb koftas, which I had serious food envy... More

It was very close to Christmas and quite busy and although we had to wait closer to an hour for our meals, we weren't in a rush and the tasty, fresh salads we chose more than made up for the wait. The flavours of the salad with pomegranates was to die for with the freshness and then the crunch. We... More

The strange middle-eastern food is ok but the attitude of the staff and owners is terrible. On my last visit I tried to order coffee and cake (both of which appear on the menu) and was told that if I wanted that is have to go to the adjoining cafe (same owners). Clearly the proprietor and staff have forgotten that... More

I have been to this cafe many times and I think it's time I wrote a review. This is a real gem of a cafe tucked away from the busy central hub. These people know how to make great coffee consistently. Worth seeking out!

My daughter has raved about Canteen Coffee for months - well I finally got to visit on the weekend and it was indeed one of the best cups of coffee I have had. Great outdoor area to lounge around in. Very trendy, very nice! Will return.

Great menu, with many innovative and delicious options. I highly recommend the chicken with baba ghanoush and tabouli. Working next door it's nice to have such a great cafe to pop into for lunch.

Canteen coffee is neatly tucked away in Burleigh and is a good place to go for decent coffee. More popular with the locals as it is a bit hidden. Staff are friendly and food and coffee come out quickly! Recommended!

While on holidays in Burleigh we thought we would give Canteen a go and try something a bit more interesting than toasted sandwiches offered by other cafés we had passed, in hind sight we should have had a toasted sandwich and saved us a lot of $$$ and time. We waited 45min or more and when our kids got hungry... More
