“Gourmet Lunch across the street from the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Open for Breakfast and Lunch 0730-1500 Tues-Sun
Went here a couple weeks ago with some co-workers for the first time. They had a great selection of specials on the lunch menu and while it was pricey for lunch the portions were a good size and the quality of the food was what you would expect for a dinner. I got the wahoo medalions with gnocchi. The wine list was extensive as well for a small cafe. Highly recommended.

Great view and very nice food. Very friendly service, and only a short walk from the resort, very handy.

“good food - great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

we dined here on a thursday lunch - and the restaurant/cafe was almost full. A good sign. The menu is simple fare - and needs to be updated, especially since the change of ownership. The waitress was attentive. The food served hot and without a long wait - which we thought we may have seeing the volume of diners. The BYO corkage fee is $5, acceptable in todays economy. The view, as always was superb. A great location, nice food, friendly service. To get all 3 today is pretty darned good!~! The waitress suggested booking on weekends as can get quite busy. Not open Monday's, Public Holidays or for dinner. Closes at 3pm, so if you're looking for a long lieisurly lunch - get there early!

“Solid brunch with a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Had brunch here during our stay in Caloundra.
It's at Golden Beach, which is a nice 2-3km walk along the waterfront from where we were staying in Bulcock Beach/main Caloundra.
It's a friendly family-owned cafe, and all the tables look out onto Golden Beach, across the road.
Being a Kiwi I'm pretty picky about my brunches (brunch is a meal which the rest of the world has yet to fully discover in my opinion!), but the quality of the food was pretty good.
Coffee acceptable but not amazing.
Would come back again
