I stumbled upon The Attic Cafe during a break away on the Sunshine Coast after an amble along the beach near the Alexandra Headland Surf Club. I'm a sucker for a comfy couch, decent coffee and authentic hospitality (including a free coffee offered to a fatigued delivery man), and this spot had it all. It has a nice arty yet unpretentious vibe, with local regulars dropping in and out, and the right balance between friendly and interested service and space for quiet respite. Check out their Facebook page to get a good sense of the place.
Despite daily coffee pilgrimages, I didn't get the chance to try what looked like a great menu of fresh culinary experiences at good value prices. Therein lies an incentive for my next trip to Alex Beach.
