Great place with friendly staff, good service and lovely menu. It has become a regular breakfast spot for us, the food is always excellent.

A group of us 'oldies' enjoyed a pretty basic morning tea, but the plates passing us were impressive & enjoyed by neighboring tables patrons. The service was pleasant & cakes & treats selected were terrific. Coffee was better than average but sitting back on their...raised deck area was most relaxing & allowed a flow of conversation & banter - so rare in enclosed cafes... & that is often what it is MOST about, a place to chat & laugh! As a local I am now enticed to sneak in for their afternoon drinks & music, & grab some of the delicious plates on offer.More

A very pleasant surprise right on the edge of the road! When we first looked at the menu, it was rather underwhelming - typical fare found in any cafe. First impressions are very often wrong as in this case. My husband’s burger was fresh and...brilliantly tasty. I had the halloumi stack/salad and it was absolutely to die for - chargrilled, fresh veg and beautiful pesto. My Bloody Mary was great, and just as we were leaving the Sunday arvo entertainment was starting in the garden. A lovely little place, we’ll be back!More

Visited today with my partner and enjoyed a lovely breakfast, we also had a pot of tea, with proper tea leaves and it was a nice hot strong cup of tea, at least two cups. There is also a "specials" board. It is set back...from the main road where you can either eat in the.garden or inside. The setting is rustic and staff very polite and helpful. They are open on a Friday night for meals but best to book, they also have themed nights. I would definitely recommend this cafe. xxxMore

We are staying in Doonan which is beautiful and only fifteen minutes from Noosa. This was a geat find for our day of arrival. Kate & the team serve up tasty fresh food and are charming in the process. Treat yourself and visit soon.

Less about the food than a totally relaxing garden setting. Can sit indoors or out in the garden and is very pleasant for breakfast or lunch. Nothing special about the food but they did an eggs Benedict that was all you could ask for. They...do coffee well, the coffee creamer was excellent.More

After being referred here by more than one person it was yet another appointing coffee. Slice was lovely but Coffee was really not great. Here’s my challenge: is there anyone on the Sunshine Coast who actually knows coffee. Local and organic are today’s trend but...they don’t make for good coffee.More

Lve the garden setting, can choose from indoors or outdoors but outside amongst the gardens is very relaxing. Food is variable, filling burgers but on this day, I chose a hummus and vegetable stack which didn't work.

Taking my elderly Mum for a drive through the hinterland we came across the hidden gem - Café Doonan. The easy proximity of parking and access for my Mum was great. I was struck by the 'rural ambience' as soon as I stepped inside, which...is really outside at the same time, because of it's open plan. I felt like I was visiting with friends, it was that laid back and the staff were engaged with each other and customers in happy banter. Seeing and hearing happy staff always sets the scene for something special. The coffee was great and the light vegetarian meal my Mum and I shared was wonderful. I saw that they also have live music sometimes. Wow do yourself a favour, get off the beaten track and call in to a place where you will always be welcome with good food, drink and service.More
