“Pleasant breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I had breakfast here during our honeymoon vacation in Airlie beach. The service was quite warm, welcoming and friendly. The food was pleasant and considering the price, good value for money. We would dine here again.

Excellent coffee and great service. Place is tucked in behind a few other places but it's worth the search.

“Semi-hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We found this cafe off the main street area and it offered a little more ambience than the standard main street. The cafe offered great service. Denise, who served us, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. She made our evening so enjoyable. We were lured in by a live musician playing some very funky beats. We sat in the al fresco area; the evening temperature was a little cool but Denise stepped in and put some very powerful heaters on. Food was beautifully presented. Steak and kebabs were served on individual hot stones, partially cooked, so you could cook the meat to your own taste which was fun and interactive. We mentioned it was my birthday and Denise brought my dessert out decorated with sparklers which made my evening. I highly recommend this cafe.

“Disappointing ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

In short:Find another place to eat your breakfast. Banana bread was not fresh, tasted like a toasted 5 day old bread - there goes 4$. The grilled tomato was too lightly grilled, and tasted like the meat that was on the grill from before... Cappuccinos cost a soaring 4.80 for the small... And service us slow.

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy the experience. Our Banana bread is always fresh. our Coffee is infamous in the Whitsundays.

Can I offer you the chance to come again?

Kind regards
