Popped in here again last week and this time for breakfast, had the porridge which was Quinoa based and topped with rhubarb. Yum! I also ordered a decaf oat latte which was sensational. Since going dairy and caffeine free about two months ago my coffee's...have been hit and miss but this one was superb. Service was also warm and friendly. Highly recommend!!More

Delicious breakfast and good coffee but shame as a group of 11 we couldn't sit together. Understand completely this is in line with COVID 19 rules but perhaps should have told us when booking for such a large group.

Called in for breakfast, with my husband and friend. Loved my eggs benne!!! My mate loved her vegan brekky, and hubby loved his big brekky. Great coffee, great food, great service. Keep up the good work.

Husband and stopped to pick him up a coffee. Well priced and he said it tasted delish. Lots of seating and order at the counter. Place was busy and respected the COVID-19 rules. Staff were friendly but did wait 20 minutes for a coffee.

We really enjoyed breakfast here on the second morning of our stay in Mt Tamborine and we were wishing we’d tried it on the first morning! Staff are friendly and helpful, the food is great value and it’s a nice relaxed spot with indoor and...outdoor seating options. Thank you.More

Only did takeaway coffee, but it was great. Good temperature, good tasting coffee and almond milk and made with a smile

We have visited for 4 days in a row for breakfast, and each time has been amazing. Coffees come out really quick and are great, and food is consistently great. Good options for Vegans, Vegetarians, and meat eaters, perfect for everyone. A must visit if...you are around the area.More

Wonderfully warm friendly service by Kim at Spice of Life Mt Tamborine. The Banoffee Slice is highly recommended.

Some people just find this whole COVID thing too hard. Even coming out of it. Nice food, quite tasty, but the wait staff and the manager need to wake up a bit. It’s called hospitality. Number one rule- don’t leave a que at the counter...and be busy with other stuff. Number two rule, never, but never be unnecessarily rude to your customers. (Without them you don’t really have a business), If you don’t have a stunning location or great views, you really need to hone those hospitality skills, or good food may suddenly not be enough.More

Made my booking 48 covid hours in advance for guests travelling from Brisbane to ensure we had a lunch venue for my birthday.. Was advised by the manager firstly that I didn’t have a booking, and then that I’d had a booking and ‘someone’ had...cancelled my booking just prior to lunch, so no table for 4! No attempt to try to problem solve for a regular customer. Obviously a larger party was waiting to be seated! You can expect the same treatment! Pity, as a local I’ve dined here many times over the years. No more. Anyway, had 2 course yummy lunch, drinks and coffees at Mountain Brew.More
