Good standard

We had a very nice lunch here. It is a chain cafe but the service and food were both good. Nice location.

This franchise is owned by two people who have great personal skills and dreadful cafe-owner-deal-with-staff skills. The coffee is adequate. The best thing is the wifi is free. One employee a month has quit in the last four months; two of them were REALLY good and were treated disrespectfully by the owners, in front of customers.

We walked from Dicky Beach along the coastal route to end up at the Coffee Club. The view is lovely, overlooking the beach and water to Stradbroke Island. The menu is standard Coffee Club franchise, but the service was good, fast, prompt and with a smile. We had the day's specials for our brunch, and all were totally delicious.We visit... More

My family and I dined for lunch, and it was quite possibly the worst meal experience I have ever had. I ordered the pumpkin, feta and spinach risotto as it sounded delicious and the menu photo looked great. It arrived at our table looking and smelling like tomato risotto - I don't eat tomato, and it was never mentioned on... More

An ideal location with both internal and external seating plus under cover parking in the Rumba Resort. There is a variety of meals, cake and coffee deals and it is also licensed. Whether for breakfast, morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea, the Coffee Club on the Bulcock Esplanade is a great choice.

Great view of boardwalk and water from outside tables. Consistently good coffee. Service is usually good but gets a bit slow if there are lots of people, understandably.

Great to find a coffee club but not up to the standard of others. The food was standard fare but presentation was second rate. The service was reticent and slow and indifferent. Not a good impression for our guests to the area. The whole atmosphere was lacking but the food was really very good. The price as always is a... More

We had dinner at the Coffee Club on the Caloundra esplanade while on a family holiday in Caloundra recently. We've found Coffee Clubs to be pretty much of a muchness everywhere and this one was no exception. If you know what to expect then you won't be surprised - it does what it sets out to do perfectly well. I'd... More

Follows the Coffee Club formula. Food is fine but Coffee Clubs would never be my first choice of venue. I find them slightly more expensive than other places but like McDonalds, you have an expectation of what you are going to receive and they meet their expectations.
