Visited the restaurant for coffee and cake, not to mention the amazing view, and great atmosphere. This place doesn't disappoint. Overlooking the Pumicestone passage, and across to the Glasshouse mountains. They serve great coffee and amazing sweet treats. The staff are friendly. The menu is great. Easy walking from Bulcock street, and tourist accomodation. A great place to relax. Loved... More

called in for a takeaway pizza while staying locally. Staff were friendly and helpful offering me a drink while I waited. The pizza was made promptly despite being a busy restaurant and was very tasty. I would visit here again

Always a good cup of coffee and the service is friendly. They have great breakfast specials and lovely pancakes. My first stop on Bullcock Beach.

We stopped here for breakfast one morning. Service was average, food was average and my chai latte had lumps in it. Given the prices we expected more.

This experience left me disappointed. It is way over priced for what you receive, the food was terrible and the half hearted attempt at customer service left me wanting to leave before we'd finished our meals. Won't be coming back here again.

Lovely place to sit, friendly staff a wow what a view. Ordered pizza with blue cheese, wild mushroom, Italian sausage',marinated artichoke, bechamel sauce and black truffle oil. Fantastic combination but somewhat underwhelming as there wasn't enough of all ingredients (really lacking on the artichoke and gorgonzola) so it didn't have the wow factor it could have had! Like the chef... More

Welcomed by staff and the owner, who apologised for our out of the way table due to some large family groups in attendance. Staff were very attentive throughout, friendly and helpful. Felt like we were in a family Trattoria in Italy.

We had dinner as a family of 4 here, we should have seen the writing on the wall as it was a good 15-20 minutes for someone to take our order then over an hour to be served, a long time considering we all only had pasta. We did at one point enquire and the owner just grunted at us... More

This restaurant is not on Trip Advisor but is located beneath the Rhumba Resort in Caloundra. Can you pls set it up as a restaurant in its own right so I can write a review.
Thanks, Kitty
