Not great seeing dog on table and seat. Staff should probably address this health issue. Coffee just great

Wow. This place is awesome. Lamb Koftas and Tabouli salad was a hit. Thanks to the friendly staff and chef. Top shelf.

This place makes the perfect coffee, best one I have found so far on my Goldcoast holiday. Service was also lovely. We have been back a few times :)

Go to this coffee shop quite regularly and nearly always get their white choc and blueberry muffin. Yum!!! Nicest muffin I think I've ever had. Their fruit toast is also yummy, with heaps more to choose from in their cabinet. Though I don't drink coffee, my friend says its one of the best she's had.

As noted above, it's the best coffee in Burliegh. Set in a quirky kind of lane way in the midst of the shops is both a cafe and a coffee shop. You can be served coffee in the various seating arrangements in the lane way, but food is served in the cafe. The cafe also has a nice array of... More

Tucked away with a quirky atmosphere in the mall, Canteen offers great coffee and an interesting selection of breakfast items with a Mediterranean twist. Always has a a vast selection of regular clientele.

This is without doubt one of the coast's great cafes. A superb menu with items such as labneh and baba ganoush plus all the usual items. The coffee is always superb and the service is always friendly and fast. I've been coming here for years. The outstanding service by Jordan and his team is really impressive! 5+ stars. Plus always...

Great cafe with good menu and and great service. Unfortunately for me I had already eaten prior to a business meeting I had here. My guest had a sensational breakfast that I would have loved to have eaten. Just a great place, with easy parking out the front

It was all good but, unfortunately, it has a small kitchen and getting our food was very slow. This doesn't work with children, or tired adults .

If I am ever in burleigh and have a chance I always grab a coffee from Canteen it is simply the best!!! Always consistent and never disappointing. The only thing that is frustrating is no matter the time of day you will wait at least 10-15 minutes for your coffee!!! Sometimes more like 20... This is the price you pay... More
