“Brilliant little cafe with buzz!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I found ourselves at Mockingbird today for lunch and it was an absolute delight. Lovely, well brewed coffee and a fantastic lunch menu. Instead of the standard, mundane lunch menu... The menu was short, but very sweet. I had the pleasure of trying the slow cooked lamb shoulder, with house made babaganoush and flat bread. My husband tried the pulled pork burger with homemade slaw and gigantic hand cut wedges! Needless to stay we left extremely full, but so happy that we have found a new place to visit in Kingscliff. It must be said that the owner takes presentation in their stride, and it shows. Ah, so lovely!

“Waited nearly an hour”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

What a disappointment , started ok, the waitress was polite and we had a nice drink while we waited for our meal. We ordered a simple breakfast and waited and waited and waited.
I eventually reminded them after nearly 45 minutes when ten people who arrived after us were served, the result was a further ten minute wait and when it arrived the bacon was overly greasy and the eggs completely overcooked.
Upon paying the $70 bill they knocked the price of one coffee off.....gee thanks.
There are several other cafes along the front which serve similar fare, I will go there next time. I will NEVER return to this place.
My advice...one to avoid .

Great coffee, good food, terrific staff, across the road from a fabulous beach. On a sunny day, what more can you want?

“Good coffee, great food, lovely design.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

What a wonderful find. We had breakfast and lunch here. Fresh, generous food. Good coffee (milk was a little thin). Great design with dark walls, multiple pendant lights and colourful coffee cups. A really wonderful cafe. Highly recommend.
