Best Coffee of the Sunshine Coast

If your looking for really good coffee on the Sunshine Coast you would be hard pressed to find a better quality on the Coast. Good bean is a small shop on the Esplanade and it is always very busy for a good reason: Great coffee. Don't pay attention to a couple of wingers that have written that... read more

Great place for just coffee. They do have some cakes but they specialise in coffee and it shows. Very quick and friendly too. Quirky little place.

Seriously amazing coffee! My absolute favourite. The food (cakes etc.) are good but it would be nice if they had more of a selection. Staff are lovely and friendly. Really good vibes, a little small though

Enjoyable pit stop for coffee by the beach. Popular with locals (and their dogs). Only does coffee which is ok but no meals

The coffee was ok but the tables provided for the patrons are in need of a good clean and a refreshing touch up.They do not do lunch only a muffin or too to choose from. The staff were young and fresh!

If you are all about flavors in your coffee you don't get better. At times you have to wait, because its the best. The only problem.

We had a take away cappuccino and for us their coffee scored the best followed by Black Market (Campos), Entice (Di Bella) and Emjays Coffee.

I visited here for a quick coffee and something to snack on between lunch and dinner. I heard some reasonably good things about the Good Bean so thought I'd give it a try. Overall, it was a good experience. The part that really stuck out the most was a good level of service - friendly and accommodating. The coffee was... More

Pretty average coffee, I'm not sure what every one is raving about. Watery & order was wrong. The best part is the free chocolate and it is cheap in comparison I guess.

This is the third time we have had coffee at the Good Bean and it is nice coffee, BUT there is a problem with how the orders are prioritised. Each time we have waited quite a long time while takeaway customers ordering long after us are served and departed before we get our coffee. It's the same price and we... More

Thank you very kindly for you review on our coffee. Many of our regulars use a mobile app called txt 4 coffee. This allows them to order takeaway coffees before they arrive so they can pick up when they get there. We NEVER prioritise anybody. Always first come first served but txt 4 coffee allows you to place an order... More
