Reviewed January 8, 2014

Love going to the CAF. The food is wonderful, always fresh and tasty. The staff is very friendly and efficient. We are locals and go to the CAF on a regular basis.

“Coolum C@f - great place to communicate”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

C@f in Birtwill Street at Coolum Beach is where locals gather with family & friends for good healthy food, coffee & cake. Going there regularly standards never drop & there are always great choices on display in addition to those on the menu. Order inside & find a casual seat outside. Worth a visit.

“Nice enough ”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

We visit regularly mainly because we are meeting someone that chooses this spot. It's nice enough, always busy but nothing spectacular. I like the bacon and egg muffins (but sunrise have better, cheaper and with a view), recently had an antipasto platter that was pretty terrible but have had some nice lunches there too.

“Great Sunday Breakfast!!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

It was very busy when we arrived but the staff were very friendly and efficient and we received our coffee and food in good time.

The coffee is by far the best in Coolum and the Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon was cooked to perfection. The addition of asparagus was a nice touch and made the meal that much better.

Ignore any bad reviews as I have been to the Caf on several occasions and it's always 5 stars in service, coffee and food :)

“Not bad, but overpriced”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Have been here a few times, and the first time I was quite disappointed by the cost of our "regular" breakfast (we order similar wherever we go for breakfast). We had a voucher at the time for 25% off and it was still more than we normally spend. The meal was nice, yes. The fresh juices were VERY overpriced, especially considering their size.
I came back recently for a takeaway and had the same experience with an overpriced wrap and overpriced, undersized juice. With so many nice breakfast places around, I'm not sure I'd venture back again.
