My First Choice Of Coffee In Burleigh Heads

I have been going to Canteen since it's inception when it was just a whole in the wall cafe. Canteen has grown in a cafe with a cool relaxed vibe with excellent coffee. Since the owner has sold the cafe this year I feel as though quality of the coffee has decreased ever so slightly. Care into every... read more

This is a very cool coffee place. It starts with the OLD cinema seats which line the arcade down to the little coffee shop. It makes very good coffee every time we have been there. As a cyclist it is bike friendly. The restaurant part of the coffee shop dishes out very good meals. The good thing about this little... More

Just to be clear, I love coffee. I love it so much that I'm often disappointed. At Canteen I've NEVER been disappointed. I've tried espressos, long blacks, cappuccinos & flat whites here and they've always been remarkable. I've been coming since it opened, every couple of months to visit family in the area. Can't recommend highly enough!

Dropped in for coffee and cake and were thrilled with both. The staff were so friendly and fun which contributed to a very enjoyable experience.

Everyone has different tastes, but for me, Canteen Coffee is the very best! On busy days there is a bit of a wait, but it's worth it! The staff are all very friendly, and the food is delicious too!

This is where we always go for consistently great coffee and I will usually pick up one of their muffins to start my day. I don't think I have ever had a bad coffee in the last few years. Sometimes there can be a small wait, as you would expect with any busy morning coffee joint but the seating and... More

I love coffee. But the hype surrounding this place is far reaching and totally overrated. Ridiculous prices. And never enough staff so it's always a lengthy wait. I have been here several times now always hoping the next experience will be a better one but each time I'm amazed at the prices, the wait and the crazy heat in the... More
