The food is definitely a bit better than the average cafe ... Plenty of locals and I sure appreciate the air conditioning on a hot day

the staff and food were good but a 45 minute wait for our meals after spending 5 hours at TreeTops (we were all very hungry) was too long

A nice mixed cafe and deli in the eclectic Tamborine Village precinct. Located in what looks like a well renovated 1900s 2 story timber house, the cafe/deli floor is all polished timber and windows and has a most inviting feel to it. The deli fills the right hand side as you enter, and has a cornucopia of choices from Scottish... More

My sister bought mum and I here for lunch as she'd been here before and liked it. Had Quiche of the day with salad ($13.90). Was very nice. Not your average Quiche. The others had Beef n Burgundy pie which they said was delicious. One had Pumpkin salad with it which I tried and it was yum. There's lots of... More

Went in for a light afternoon tea and walked out having had a full meal. A little expensive for what we had but OK.

The service was excellent, very polite cheerful staff. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of meals served. All the ingredients appeared to be very fresh and my poached eggs were cooked perfectly. You have the choice of dining inside or outside and the outside is not on the footpath, which is a welome difference. All in all I would... More

You cannot possibly visit Tamborine Mountain and tell people you didn't drop in for an unhurried meal and an extended conversation at the Spice of Life ...! Even when it's bustling with tourists, you can sit and spot the locals passing by and calling out to the staff or the owner by name, or pausing with their dog at an... More
