“A taste of heaven”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

I've bee to several cafés on Tamborine mt and the one that keeps me coming back for more is spice of life. The staff are always friendly, the atmosphere is young and modern and the food is amazing. The meals sizes are generous and there is plenty to choose from. The chillers and fresh juices are fantastic along with all the yummy home made goodies in the cake cabinet. By far the best cafe on Tamborine mt

“Brilliant! Follow the locals!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We came for breakfast and had the best pancakes and a big breakfast. The staff were clearly a favourite among the locals, people were just using their name to order coffee and the bubbly waitress on the counter didn't miss a beat. Definitely coming back to do it all again. Coffee was perfect temperature too.

“Best brunch”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is my favourite cafe on the mountain with good food and great service. They do breakfast best but the rest of the menu features good eats. Try out the homemade muffins and doorstop fruit toast. Cozy atmosphere for big groups or a solo meal.

“We Couldn't Finish Our Long Black and Cappuccino”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

I am not sure why this place is rated so highly. It is surely not for the coffee. I paid $8 for a long black and a cappuccino only to leave the cafe with hardly touched coffee on the table. There wasn't even that many people in the cafe. If I am going to pay $8 for 2 coffees I expect that coffee to be amazing and not taste like a dirty old rag. Mcdonalds makes a better coffee than these guys. Unfortunately we had to make the drive back to Brisbane tired and without any caffeine.
