Stopped for coffee and lynch. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. Coffee was strong and tasty. I had a ham, cheese and tomato toasted sandwich - real leg ham and planty of it. Delicious! Well worth stopping by.

The staff are so professional. They've really got something great happenimg here. The food is delicious, the dining areas are neat, yet have that country charm that Esk has. Its worth the money, - its one of the more expensive cafes in town.

One of the best Coffee shops to visit anywhere. This one just happens to be in Esk. This great little town is between Toowoomba and Caboolture Qld. Great coffee and all home made cakes, pies etc. Coffee can be had inside or on the verandah. We always stop here when passing through. Highly recommend for a great coffee and slice... More

A lovely little cafe but probably only a place we would return if we wanted a coffee and cake as their lunch menu is very limited

Traveling through Esk on the way to Caloundra and stopped at this really nice cafe. Both inside and alfresco dining on offer. Wife and I had a large latte, and when I say large, it was huge, and tasted brilliant. The cakes we had were fresh carrot cake and an almond biscuit. Both were very yummy. Very clean amenities as...

Wow, better than expected this place has it all - relaxed setting, friendly and prompt service, great food (we had morning tea) and good coffee. There were a lot of gluten free options and what I had was absolutely delicious. We sat outdoors under the umbrella but seating under cover indoors was another option. On the main road so easy...
