I discovered this place on my second to last day in Mooloolaba, and it was just around the corner from where we were staying! Heavenly coffee, neat vibe and good location. One of the few coffee places that know how to make a Flat White ;-)

Had heard about Good Bean and as I love a nice coffee, decided to try on our holiday in Mooloolaba. Definately worth the visit. Funky, friendly atmosphere and the yummiest coffee. I had a capa and my friend a latte. We both agreed it was the nicest coffee of our week long girly holiday (and we had at least one... More

Really good coffee. Nice and relaxed with a reasonable amount of seating. They do tea really well also. You just have to watch out for the line of people ordering coffee on the weekend.

It's supposed to be the best coffee on the coast, and on a good day, it certainly hits the mark! I've had some awesome coffee from here. However, I've had times where I've waited upwards of half an hour for a takeaway (with no apology/explanation) and times where the coffee has been less than average. Some staff are fantastic, while... More

Fantastic coffee, right across from the waterfront. Quirky coffee shop with a small selection of treats. Coffee served with a "freckle" - love this place! Quick and efficient service with a smile.

Place is located by the waterfront. Operated by very young staff that were generally friendly and also fast in serving their coffee. Had coffee to go but was nonetheless impressed by its quality. Will definitely return!

This place does one thing only: coffee. And does it superbly. We hadn't been here for a year but much to our relief they are still serving up some of the best coffees on The Sunshine Coast.

I love my morning walk on the beach and getting a coffee from The Good Bean is a high light ! Yes you do have to wait, but if you are in a hurry,go else where as there are plenty of other coffee shops on that stretch of Mooloolaba. Though have tried quite a few and the coffee just isn't... More
