“Quirky charming place, but very expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is a tiny all pink cafe with organic fair trade coffee and a great breakfast menu. The courtyard out the back with the mosaics and art work and next door gallery is quirky and lovely but OH the prices. We are from Noosa and used to high prices and this is one VERY expensive coffee shop. You can eat cheaper at Berardos Ocean Front Cafe in Hastings St. Breakfasts are all around the $20 mark (or more). So we had our (average) coffee, absorbed the atmosphere but decided not to eat here due to the costs.
