Very good coffee, brownies and their own special iced coffee. Really good little cafe. Friendly staff, close to the beach.

You get a lot of places to have coffee. What makes this place special is they treat you like family or friends. And the coffee is really good.

I took the family here on a couple of mornings that we stayed in Mooloolaba. It is by far the best coffee in town, despite other venues that claim to be "specialists" in coffee. This place is the real deal. To be clear... Don't expect other fare such as breakfast food, because these guys and girls only do coffee and... More

Absolutely buzzing with all the escapees from Brisbane and the G20 summit - it felt like all of Brisbane was here for the weekend but the staff handled it well and the coffee was good. Great seaside atmosphere.

We were fortunate to stumble upon this gem of a coffee shop about a year ago and have been getting our coffee there ever since every time we are in Mooloolaba. We are coffee snobs and the coffee here is consistently very good. At times there may be a few minutes wait, and it can be difficult to get a... More

If you're serious about your coffee and you won't settle for second, you can't go wrong with The Good Bean. The staff are lovely and always greet you with a smile. They're passionate about coffee too, so they care about making sure you're happy with your drop. My only word of caution is you have to be prepared to wait... More

If you're on the Sunshine Coast (Queensland) and a coffee aficionado, you owe it to yourself to visit the Good Bean in Mooloolaba. Sitting right opposite possibly one of the worlds best beaches it's nestled amongst the last of Mooloolaba's original shopfronts and maximises this theme by providing good old fashioned customer service and focussing on making great coffee. They... More

Good consistent coffee and great location. Take the time to walk down from the main tourist strip towards Good Bean to grab a quality coffee... so much better than Starbucks, Gloria Jeans, and The Coffee Club. This is where the locals go. Enjoy!
