“Lovely breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I have been going to the Dune Cafe for 2 Christmas holidays and have enjoyed their breakfasts, juices and coffees.
Staff are friendly which is a plus, it is pleasant to sit and watch the birds and other life go by.

“Such a great spot for families to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is one of our favourite spots to go when we catch up with friends or family for a meal. Very kid friendly with an area for them to play not to mention the massive grassed field for them to run on. We can sit and relax and enjoy yor food and not worry the whole time about the kids being bored.

“A project by a local council that actually works”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is the most relaxing cafe we have ever been to (in Australia). It is a model of how a local council can be intelligent in concept, design and service delivery. Here is a cafe that works at all levels that is not run by pseudo-cool dudes fashioning themselves as poncy baristas or by dishevelled students in denial about working for a degree by actually joining the capitalist system for survival money.
It is nice and clean, unoffensive, maybe even banal, but oh so peaceful, with friendly staff and great coffee and vistas to die for.
This should be a model for any capital project being considered by any council authority in Australia because it actually works.

“Coffee in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Dune Cafe is the most relaxed place to enjoy superb coffee that the southern gold coast has to offer. Wonderful friendly staff, fab coffee, great food and the most gorgeous location makes me very grateful that the "DUNE is "our local".
