With new owners, we can still enjoy the best fish and chips in Caloundra, if not best on Sunshine Coast. Great service, and we were even able to pick up a favourite item which they use in there menu. Shhhhhh...... he he he.

The staff were friendly, were prompt to take the order but either lost our order or are just very slow, it took ages for our main meals to arrive. The meals were ok, well presented and my lamb was nice enough the only criticism is the 'medium rare' steak my partner got was medium well or even well ... There... More

Thanks so much for your feedback. We love that you enjoyed your meals(would have like d the opportunity to correct the steak) and apologise that the level of service was not up to our usual standards. We were definitely under the pump with a very busy weekend; we do plan our staffing requirements around bookings and a lot of the... More

A great little cafe. Sit and relax with a nice glass of Moscato overlooking Bulcock Beach. Good location, great service and reasonable prices. Try for a window seat facing the beach.

I visited the Sandbar Cafe for lunch with a business colleague. There's plenty of quality choice on the menu, and the service was prompt - important for a business lunch when time is critical. I'd be happy to go back.

Recently went to Sandbar for Fish and Chips for lunch with the family. Everything was great, service, food and price. Would recommend to get your takeaway from there if you are near Bulcock Beach and a little hungry,

We came for a wedding, the staff were amazing and the food was some of the best I have ever eaten. They even catered for us all for breakfast the next morning. Highly recommend the Waffles! Great coffee too!

We had lunch inside on a very cold Sunday. The service was not to be faulted. The cafe was only half full which may be why service was so fast and everything was perfect. We all had something different from Waffles with bacon and banana to Scallops, Fish & Chips and Calamari. We live on the coast and have eaten... More
