I always get bread from this place when in Buderim. The buns are always fresh and are the type I really like. I had a hotdog here, not the cheap and nasty type, but a yummy german style

New owners which shows. I found everyone friendly good breakfast and good price. Service was good. More local should support . I found it pleasant . There could be a more options for lunch. My mother had the pie and said it wasn't fantastic . I would still go for breakfast.

We had breakfast here on our first morning visiting the area. The menu is limited but they run a bakery at the back and offer light meals as well. It was lovely to sit out on the deck and watch the morning come alive smelling the fresh bread cooking. Hubby had eggs benedict which he enjoyed and I had the... More

On the outside, this coffee house appears very appealing, hence the choice. We were anticipating a great breakfast, however the continued rudeness of one of the staff members was very unpleasant, enough to consider walking out and never going back there again. We did end up staying for breakfast, but it was quite ordinary. I would not choose to repeat... More

I've been to this cafe a couple of times and have found the service to be slow and unwelcoming and bordering on sheer rudeness. The cakes don't taste as good as they look and are grossly overpriced. The one thing this cafe has got going for it is that it's open when most other Buderim cafes are shut. It's also... More

I have been going to this place off and on since it opened. Like others I have found it to be nothing like it used to and as always well over priced. My wife and I have got to know the staff over the years, well actually there has been that many to really say that but a couple of... More

The display of cakes looked scrummy, but unfortunately after paying through the nose for them as a special treat, I got them home and found the cream fillings were hard and generally they tasted pretty stale. Needless to say they ended up in the bin! Very disappointing after paying all that money - never again.
