“worst place ever...”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

During a recent trip to the mount i went to the coffee club with some friends for lunch, where we were greeted by an extremely rude and unpleasant 'manager' who i believe goes by the name of Janet?! Whilst we were waiting for our coffees (which tasted disgusting because the milk was burnt) my friend went to the counter to ask why they were taking so long and over heard the manager talking badly about other customers.
We left feeling disappointed and ripped off, and wondering what she may have said about us!!!!!
We certainly will not be going back there, and wouldn't reccommend it to anyone else.

“Friendly staff, but food average”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We have eaten here only a couple of times, but find food very average and pricey for extras, when most cafes have these included. Friendly staff though.

“Quite place for a 'good coffee'”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Lovely staff, very friendly and helpful. Pleasent surroundings, comfy sofa's. Staff did not hassle you if you were stil there an hour later sitting on a coffee and slice of cake.

“Conventional, convenient – but prime location!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you want to be one of the Mount crowd then you want to be right on the main beach and The Coffee Club certainly has one of the prime locations. We chose to have lunch there because of the warm sunny winter day location and particularly the kerbside outdoor tables with a view of the surf.
You need to remember that this is a cafe not a restaurant. Service is via counter ordering so don’t sit at your table expecting to have your order taken.
The menu is conventional middle of the road light cafe offerings with average sized servings – no surprises and heaps of deep fried items including chips with most things. Plenty of cabinet desserts, muffins etc. and quality coffee in a range of serving sizes.
So for those needing a caffeine and fry fix this is a good feed trough with quick, convenient cafe atmosphere.

“Bethlehem Coffee Club”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Very bland and unexciting food. Friendly staff but cannot say much else. We went there for dinner, Cant even remeber what we ate as it was such a non event. Wont bother again. Have also had very average lunch's here. They really need to "spice up" the menu.
