Came here for breakfast and I wish I hadn't. Poached eggs on the cheapest bread and really bad coffee. The staff don't seem at all interested. Don't get sucked in by the view.

Went for lunch. Specials looked great, fish and chips with calamari for $15! Except the calamari was a $6 add on, and I only got 4 pieces. The fish was a medium size and I got very few chips. Plus a poky uninspiring salad. Service at the counter was average but friendly, and after that we were pretty much ignored.... More

Visited here for lunch, sat outside with a lovely view and we could almost dip our toes in the water. Food was excellent as was the wine, I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the area

This is a 5 for location and a 2 for food, which averages to a 3. Pity really, because this is the best cafe location in Caloundra. If you can grab an outside table by the water, there is no better spot to have a meal. My advice is to choose wisely - the chips and burgers looked good and... More

The outlook across the water from this café is stunning. Although not air conditioned, the brisk breeze allowed us to enjoy our coffees and milkshakes in comfort.
