The ever reliable Hog's Breath meals were there - an experience for the meat eaters - but what really impressed was the customer service. We were a large multi-age family group of almost 20. Bookings and variations to them were readily dealt with as was wheelchair access, chilren's food preferences and individual billing for a large group. Congratulations on a... More

We got caught in a storm on our way to Twin Towns and happily found shelter at Hogs Breath. Most of my group hadn't eaten here before and were very happy with it. Curly fries, Potato skins, beef wrap and all the drinks were great and just what we needed for a late lunch. Highly recommended for staff service and... More

Over the past 3 years we have been here 4 times. We actually stopped coming here 1 year ago because the service got so bad. So this is the first time back and it has not changed one bit. Here for lunch and it is only 1/4 full. We counted 11 tables that had not been cleared from previous diners.... More

This is a fav with my son's family and they often go for birthdays. Kids' meals are free on Monday and Tuesday so this is a bonus. I like the salmon.

The service left a lot to be desired and I... More

While walking along Griffiths Street, Coolangatta at a few minutes before 11.00 am I noticed about thirty people grouped near the front door of the Hog's Breath Cafe. When the doors opened the people streamed in. A noticeboard advertised a variety of lunches for $9.95. I had been a frequent visitor to Hog's Breath Cafes in Townsville and generally liked... More

Whatever Hog's Breath and their management have told their waitstaff about sitting down on a chair to introduce yourself and take orders is seriously the worst idea ever! Its degrading, unprofessional and lazy! The music is too loud you cannot hear each other speak and they cannot hear you to listen to your order. Waitstaff could not remember when asked... More
