Located on the main drag of Coolum Beach. Set well back from the street so easy to miss but this is what makes it a nice location and a very pleasant setting.

Nice flat whites and homemade treats. Also made a kids milkshake for my toddler, although not on the menu. Thanks worth a visit.

Great little side alley Espresso bar, serving coffee, smoothies and muffins. Sidewalk seating with free newspapers and chess. The coffee was locally roast and very good, the Barista even managed to put a smile on my friends dial, in serving a medium short Machiato with...More

Unfortunately, no longer in Coolum and will be missed. A great combination of Carlos and Lee delivered a community with wonderful coffee and food like nothing else in Coolum. Carlos now found in Peregian Beach with Hand of Fatima.

Excellent food service and although not a coffee drinker - famously the best in Coolum. Sadly this cafe has closed and reopened as Hand of Fatima in Peregian Beach

This has to be the best coffee in Coolum with the quirkiest service! The barista is always friendly and the coffee is always delicious.

I'll admit that I'm a bit of a coffee snob but Carlos makes the best coffees in town. And Lee the chef makes some of the best lunches and breakys I've ever tasted. They have moved to Perigian Beach just down the road and although...More

This little cafe was one of my favourites during a 2014 visit to Coolum. My daughter and I visited every day to enjoy a wonderful coffee and daily treat. They had a new cake experience on the menu every day. We often missed out as...More

A sad day today as the end of their lease meant it was the last breakfast we would have at Little Lane Espresso. In such a short time, it had become an institution in Coolum totally justified by Lee's quality menus and cooking and Carlos'...More
