“Great coffee and cakes”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

I have only had coffee and cake there. Service was great, cakes were delicious and good coffee. Nice atmosphere inside if you get a table near the window.

“Capers in a canter”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Each year we manage a trip or two to Buderim (the result of a house-sitting hobby) and we always make a point of dropping in for a breakfast or lunch at Capers to catch up with Leon, the owner. He keeps us updated about the newest restaurants and coffee spots on The Sunshine Coast. He is also very astute about the food and coffee market in and around Buderim and has been uncanny in being able to tell us which new places would survive and which won't.
What he also does very well is provide a consistency of offerings at Capers at prices that are among the best anywhere in this tourist mecca. The coffee is always well made (though an unexceptional Vittoria blend); the food is tasty and updated to reflect changing consumer tastes (a quinoa salad was added on this occasion) and he runs the place like a well oiled machine .... but with his own personal touch.
Leon is well aware of the attractiveness of places offering boutique coffees and I'd be surprised if he doesn't soon incorporate single origin and boutique blend coffees before long.
This guy just keeps on kicking goals year after year ... and long may it continue.

“lovely afternoon tea”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

very quiet on the main street of Buderim and for a quick afternoon tea it was perfect. Lovely hot chocolate and coffee for Mum and myself and we each had a raspberry/cheesecake slice which was light and tasty. Good service and pleasant surrounds, can be recommended

“yummy cakes and tea”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

A great place to sit quietly and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, and what seemed like a home made lemon tart! Really lovely staff, friendly and helpful. Would be a great place to sit on a rainy day and pass the time.
