The cafe was just up the road from where we staying and so we strolled up for a snack. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. The views are breathtaking. Clearly a popular stopping off point with regular trade whilst we were there. An excellent location for a break and to take in the mountain views.

Good coffee and nice selection of fresh foods. Very pleasant staff and tables not overcrowded. Its lovely to just sit and admire the view from the deck with the glasshouse mountains in the background.

Popped into the lookout cafe for breakfast with a friend who was visiting from Tassie on our way up to the Tibrogargen lookout. As i walked in i noticed a couple who had their dog with them at a table on the deck and that the cafe had some dog water bowls out. I'm always happy to find a cafe... More

Went for early lunch on 27th Dec public holiday. Very very busy, staff friendly and advised on 30min wait for food. Very accomodating for vegan and GF requirements even though they were flat out food quite good, but service for me was tops.

Definitely worth a visit... Both for marvellous food and the stunning views. One part of the wall are cafe windows and u can sit there looking at the vista whilst eating. Also offers an outdoor covered cafe area that is very comfy. We had nachos and smashed ago and were really pleased with both. The also offer all day breakky.

Had the best breakfast ever coupled with an equally wonderful view. Dropped by here after visiting The Glass House Mountains. Love the weather and the people of Australia!

Pleasant cafe set under a verandah with a good selection of sweet and savoury eats, for either lunch or just a snack. Good views out onto some of the Glasshouse Mountains, and easy reach of a couple of worthwhile look out points. Worth a stop to rehydrate and chill out away from the heat of the day. Recommend.

After visiting the Glasshouse Mountains scenic lookout we decided to stop in here for some lunch on the way down. As it is well off the beaten path we really weren't expecting much. We were wrong! To begin with it has a lovely deck with a gentle refreshing breeze and a wonderful mountain view. They offer a fairly extensive menu... More

Nice pit stop with a view. With a beautiful view of the mountains it's definitely inviting, kid friendly but a little bit more than the average person would spent to eat out. I would personally recommend ordering the big burger and sharing it. It's more than enough for 2 people.

Thank Bebesum01
