I had to sit around after an appointment and there were 3 or 4 cafes all together, all about the same size ...but this one was full...I wondered why.I had Eggs benedict with vegetables and a green juice. Perfect eggs with fresh asparagus,mushrooms tomato and avaocado , cooked perfectly....fannnntastic , and the juice was fresh

This place is v popular with the locals - always a good sign and for good reason. Its busy place that does a great brekky or brunch. Coffee is better just around the corner at Compound Surf Espresso, but if you want a hearty brekky go here.

Fantastically fresh and fabulous food with excellent service. Lots of healthy choices and everything made on site. Completely delicious. Worth the walk to find this local gem! Tip: its in an arcade by a medical centre opposite the Woolworths supermarket. Eat where the locals do!!

Loads of great food treats & drinks. Gluten & dairy free options too! Staff friendly & efficient & helpful. Enjoyed my lime tart (gf) & smoothie which they adapted to suit me - then offered me to taste to see if there was enough honey for me. Excellent!!

We had breakfast after checking Trip Advisor for best cafe. It lived up to the reviews! Really good coffee & great fresh food - we saw several other meals being delivered & all looked really good. Obviously plenty of locals getting take away & some eating in - would go back for sure. Recommended

The Caf Coolum has been a stopping place for our caffine fix for the last few years now, we enjoy the cool tunnel on a hot day, the friendly staff and reasonable prices for our morning teas with quality food range, excellent.

Recently met a friend for a long overdue catch up here. Coffee was awesome, as always. Their menu has great variety and I appreciated that they had bite sized snacks at bite sized prices. I'll be back!

We stayed a few nights in Coolum and then a week in Noosa. We ate breakfast here both mornings we were in Coolum and came back once or twice from Noosa and ate here as well. Great fresh options and your standard bacon and eggs and bene etc. Gluten free muesli, frappes, great coffee and excellent service. We will return.
