A great place for breakfast. Tremendous setting looking over the beach and super friendly staff. All the Aussie breakfast favourites, try the eggs Benedict. We were staying some time so took out membership, 7$ for the two us as seniors. Get 10% discount on food and drinks so a no brainier.

Stayed in Mooloolaba for 2 nights enjoying dinner both nights at the surf club. Servkce was friendly and fast. Meals were great meals at a resonable price, and it accomodated my 10 year old son. On top of that fantastic view of the beach;)
