This place is horrible. I went there today with two of my friends and nine of use were impressed. The service was terrible, staff members were abrupt and downright rude. I don't think any of them like their jobs. This is not surprising considering the overpriced muck they serve up as "food". Coffee was also undrinkable. It was boiling hot... More

Cafe 21 was a lucky choice for breakfast while visiting the Caloundra street fair. Food was very good and the pleasant young people waiting tables were bright and friendly. Good choice.

Fairly average sort of place in most respects, standard Australian cuisine. Gets humid there in the afternoons and for the price of the meal (trying to match a mid range restaurant - but you have to order at the counter) the quality of the food is average. Ordered the squid which was way too salty, cold water wasn't cold -... More

Love a coffee? I found Cafe 21 in the main street of Caloundra...they roast their own coffee and it's consistently very good. Service is very good and the coffee has got me going back time and time again.
