We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. We selected the Prawn Pasta (AUS $32) and the Chicken Pasta (AUS $30), both very tastey. Our wait person, Lauren, was friendly with a warm personality... More

Having been to Bellaki previously we decided to return on our last visit to Coolangatta to have breakfast there. I had bacon and eggs and this meal came out immediately. This made me think it had been sitting there for sometime. The bacon was not crispy and swimming in liquid. My daughter had muesli which was so very basic, nothing... More

Love my early morning coffee here while on holidays. Can usually find a seat at a table outdoors. Prompt and friendly staff. Breakfasts also tasty and filling. Have been coming back for several years now.

Have been twice with family and also friends and this restaurant is the best food we have had on the coast. The service is top notch and prices reasonable for a better restaurant

Go for breakfast regularly. Amazing big brekky and eggs benedict. Good coffee, well made and I love the flavour of vittoria coffee. The staff are all super friendly. Its also a local hang-out for the ambos and police to pick up a take-away coffee.

Always go to this restaurant when in Coolangatta. Picked family up from airport and went immediately to this old favourite before heading northward. Great coffee and juices however for the first time we were shocked. Son and daughter in law ordered oysters as an entree, they had one each and had to spit them out. They spent first two days...
