We dropped in here for some birthday cake - Tea and coffee were very good but the pastries and desserts are very good!

We choose this cafe at Tamborine simply because it had at least twice as many customers as the other options. And maybe that was its weakness as the staff were flat out keeping up with the orders. After a longish wait, our meals arrived. My wife confirmed her chicken burger was excellent. My open topped steak sandwich came with some... More

Excellent dining. Coffee and range of delicious fresh baked sweets. Inside dining, average prices. Shelves filled with deli goods from local producers. Bit busy on day we visited, service a bit slow but may have been down a staff member.

My partner and I had breakfast here, eggs Benedict and coffee. To start with the drinks came out and shortly after the food, it's not often I find a place will actually get them out around the same time, normally the drink is gone then the food arrives. The food was good, my only comment is if you want things... More

Visited for lunch. We saw a pleasant looking, busy restaurant. The menu seemed to suit our needs being a family with two small children. First issue: We chose the fish and chips and asked that the fish be grilled rather than deep fried... unfortunately this 'simple' request was denied with little explanation. It wasn't until the food arrived that we... More

We visited here twice and the menu is varied and encompasses many tastes. We enjoyed kumara zucchini fritters with mushroom & haloumi / pancakes with strawberries / smashed avo on sourdough, and a spicy bean & chorizo... More

This café & deli is well supported by locals. The baristas always produce a fine coffee, the food is fresh and tasty ( if you are there when the daily batch of muffins is pear and ginger, you are blessed), and the service is cheerful.
