The family and I stopped here for breakfast. Staff are helpful and efficient. Coffee was great and tried 3 treats to share. Coconut bread tasty with the chefs homemade jam . It was covered in cream and unfortunately I don't eat cream so would have been better if cream and jam in small pots on side. The coconut rice with... More

We struggle a little with the menu for lunch as it appears tapas style paired with wine. Usually the coffee is good but was disappointing this time. Food was underwhelming, service surly and music was far too loud. We love the setting though.

This is a splendid place to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee in the shade of a large poinciana tree. It must look spectacular when in full flower. The gentle canopied atmosphere was helped by the gentle background music.

Poinciana has been one of my favorite restaurants to frequent during the past year. The food is consistently scrumptious with a plethora of nutritious options, the outdoor cafe is a relaxing place for studying solo or for a social chat and nice meal with friends, the staff are friendly and professional, and there's free wifi and lovely tea options. Highly... More

I have been here many times for brekkie, lunch and dinner. Great service and great food. Heaps of options and awesome super tasty flavours. Live music makes this a gem to visit through the weekend. A definite must see to any passer through or local. Highly recommend corn fritters for brekkie and big rib for lunch or dinner. I will... More

Poinciana has been my favourite cafe in Mullum for many years, and was really unhappy with the change in atmosphere and decor that the new owners brought, but once I'd got over that (12months) and looked at it as a fresh space. Food is lovely and service good, had music on the night we went for dinner and then atmosphere... More

Chilled out spot for NYE, great live music and very nice rose! A highlight of the evening was seeing the water dragon checking itself out in the mirror! 3 out of the 4 dinners we ordered were beautiful, 1 was a little disappointing. Would definitely go again!

What a great place. We arrived earlyish on Friday, were greeted and seated near the poinciana tree where the musician was warming up. (That's how early we were). Drinks were discussed and ordered; icy-cold beers and glasses of sparkling wine. We ordered the special 2 for 1 deal. Ours was the Mayan chicken while the other couple ordered the vegetarian...

Well you would expect Mullumbimby to be relaxed!! Lots of outdoor eating and even a little water dragon running around the tables. Excellent gf carrot cake. Too hot for coffee so we tried the great range of cold drinks including an excellent kombucha. Friendly and helpful service.
