“Great latte coffee”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have been a regular here in the last couple of years when staying at the amount. Their latte is always great. Nice and strong and good flavour. I think part of the secret is serving it in a small glass rather than a big bowl. The food is also very good except perhaps for their muffins. There are 2 other good cafes on the strip so keep the standard high guys.

“best coffee”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Kieran makes the best, and most consistent coffee at the Mount. As discerning coffee drinkers my husband and I know a good (or bad) coffee when we see or drink one.
my long macchiato was so good that i had to have two!!!
and the toasted muesli and fresh fruit is beautifully presented, with seasonal fruit.
So far two out of two breakfasts, and I am sure we will be back tomorrow.
(Kieran also has a social conscience - he shaved his hair off for Kids Can child cancer, and now I see he is doing a fundraising walk to help a local woman surfer who was paralysed in a surfing accident last month.)

“Great food”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Lovely beach front location. The food was well prepared and very tasty. Staff were a little disorganised though and got ours and others orders mixed up. Would still go back though

“Still The best place”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

Have been drinking coffee, eating in & takeaway since 2002. Still the same owner, great food & great coffee, its a favourite for us. Although its small & hard to sit in sometimes the option to takeaway & enjoy on the beach or grass straight across the road is great to have. Its always hectic & the reason why is because its always good. I've never had a bad coffee. Service can be average, but they're efficient & prompt.
