Okay so I'm normally in my afternoon lull when I head over to Base Camp for a pick-me-up. Which normally consists of a brownie and something to drink. They make their food in-house, which means lots of variety and it's often never exactly the same thing twice. I go fairly often, and for a reason. Quick service, local shop, and the best brownies short of homemade.

Visited the Base Camp three or four times during a recent P.R. visit, and really enjoyed it. Friendly staff, interesting artwork, good coffee, pastries and sandwiches. There was at least one or two vegetarian sandwich choices, which I appreciated. I even bought two coffee mugs - amazing artwork by Vrinda Palacios. (Hadn't heard of her, just liked the octopus). Anyway, even the sink/mirror in the restroom is a work of art. Now, as others have mentioned, the benches aren't super-comfortable, but are fine for a short to medium length visit. Definitely recommend.

Base Camp is an adorable Sunshine Coast treasure. A few friends and I hunkered down in here to await the rest of our group arriving later on the ferry. We were pleasantly surprised by the delicious cauliflower soup and yummy coffee, as well as the level of service we received. The lovely barista (Jessie?) chatted to us for ages, even as she began to close up shop. Perfect little cafe!

If you want to fill yourself up "goodness", eat here! Food that taste like real food can be found at this funky little place. Beautiful soups that taste good for you (not over-salted or filled with sugars and preservatives), wholesome sandwiches and the absolute BEST London Fog!
