Wasn’t going to write this as they have had at least 10 awesome experiences here, but the boss’s attitude changed my mind. Friendly greeting on arrival. Ordered coffees, avo smash with bacon side & breakfast bruschetta. Coffees came quickly & were ok. Breakfast took 35...minutes. Bruschetta was missing its goats cheese- advised & they bought some in a dish- bacon was sold as crispy on the menu, but one end of the single rasher was completely colourless & undercooked- poached egg had gooey white bits inside. Avo smash was 3 pieces of dry toast with unseasoned avo & a quarter of a plate full of rocket- bacon was cooked really well on this dish. While eating, a staff member asked how it was to which we replied OK- at that point I would have left it, but she proceeded to ask ‘why just ok’, which we answered as per above & she said she would let the boss know. A few minutes later the boss came out & proceeded to loudly ask customers around us how their meals were - she left us till last & when we answered OK (same as said to other staff member) she gave us a weird look & said ‘Oh, well that’s good’- SUPER WEIRD passive aggressive staged performance- won’t be back…More

The corn fritters are wonderful and the eggs poached perfectly. It tastes as good as it looks. The staff were friendly and quick to bring us out our coffees. The bruschetta was also delicious.

Booked a table for breakfast and we were glad we did as there were many turn aways on the morning even though it was raining. Unfortunately they serve clandestino coffee that a number of cafes serve here in town which I don’t particularly enjoy. The...meals made up for this in quality and serving size. The meals also included made on site components which is a bonus. Very happy with the food and service.More

Great coffee, however our breakfast was disappointing. Bircher muesli was too thick & not enjoyable to eat. The hash brown was similar texture to mash potato, was expecting different.

Beautiful breakfast. Had the daily special which was sautéed mushrooms, feta, spinach with the crispiest/fluffiest/tastiest potato hash, smashed avocado and poached egg. Mushrooms and potato hash were outstanding. Iced latte was great and my partner thoroughly enjoyed his stir fry chorizo breakfast and coffee. Definitely...would recommend, great food and great service.More

The rain of Noosa was coming down, It wasn't drizzling it was pouring, Lucky for us the food was dazzling, A hint of green, a hint of pink, The food was worth a think. We ate away and our taste buds were Fulfilled, and that...left us feeling thrilled. Until next time chefs special, L&S out!More

relaxed place for morning coffee; provide newspapers. Pleasant service staff and owner. Be aware, as do all the coffee shops along the river, allow dogs

Thank you to Esco for the amazing food and service on multiple occasions while visiting Noosaville. The staff are exceptional - they are attentive, friendly and appear to truly enjoy their work and helping people have a great time. I can recommend the salmon stack...and also the corn flapjacks. Beware though as the serves are large and you won’t want to stop eating!More
