“Overpriced. Average quality”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

While staying at Rumba Beach Resort we had both dinner one night and breakfast on the day of departure. We have been to several coffee club cafes. The best being St Kilda in Melbourne but this one has to be the worst. Food very average. We ordered a hot breakfast but it was cold. If you are staying at resorts near this café venture out a little.

“Expensive for what we had”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We were disappointed that this was the only cafe in the Mall for us to eat. We chose fried eggs on ciabatta toast and tomato with a tea and iced tea. Turned out to be an expensive meal which is mirrored in each franchise in NZ and Australia.

“Poor everything...”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

Usual coffee club service from start to finish. Slow to get their attention for a seat. Slow to get a waitress to take or order. Then when the meals come out. Two were correct and two were wrong. One was cold. Another had the wrong order. Pitiful. Young service staff and lazy cooks who need to care a little bit more....Every time I think coffee club might be a bit better I give them another go and they disappoint every time. Never go here EVER!

“Incredible disappointing”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

When we first arrived there was no one there so we sat out the front only to be told to move with no reason as to why. They then moved us into section one inside. We were then treated as though we were twelve and not our proper adult age. Service was absolutly terrible, our drinks tasted like they used off milk, as my brother couldn't drink his at all because it was that bad we order another drink, once we were ready to order our food, the waitress had to ask three times how we wanted out eggs, then come up for the fourth time and asked if we had hash brown which we did. I had order an omelette which was really good that I wanted it a second time but when it arrived it didn't even look the same. Let alone taste the same, so as we were discussed how we were treated we just to get the hell out, while my friend was waiting to pay for our meals, so we all waited outside but to top it all of a lady ran out to accuse us of not paying the bill, but it wasn't to me it was to 14 year old brother. So I snapped an told them that our friend was paying. I will never dine in there again worst experience

“Slow service and pushy staff”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Went for coffee with friends. Made to feel like we should eat even though about 11am. Service slow and then made to feel like we should leave as soon as drunk coffee or order more coffee. That would be ok if place full but hardly anyone there. Good job there is a nice view.
The coffee club at the Stockland Centre in Caloundra and in the shopping centre in Kawana are much nicer as the staff are much better trained.
