Staff lovely ... Breakfast very average !!! Very disappointed as I love this place . The Avo and goat cheese , pumpkin purée on charcoal toast was such a disappointment.. cold pumpkin, sweet tasting charcoal toast .. not sure what was happening. Turmeric tea pretty...poor too . The bacon and egg roll my friend had was good though .. Ate there yesterday too and toasties and chai tea where wonderful . Obviously not consistent with good foods .. Such a shameMore

We were looking for a place to go to breaky on a Tuesday morning and 16 Feet Espresso was one of the only places that was open. We ordered some coffees, the big breakfast, and the avocado on toast. They were lovely enough to substitute...the toast for the avocado my boyfriend ordered for gluten-free bread. Both the meals were delicious, with the mushrooms in the big breakfast being especially wonderful. I have absolutely no complaints and the coffee was also great!! There is also plenty of spots to sit and eat with a lovely outdoors rear area with a nice little playground and clean bathroom! I would definitely recommend this lovely little cafe with delicious food and lovely staff!!!More

Good little café with outdoor seating area ideal for sitting with our dog and enjoying the Winter sunshine. The menu is not extensive, but there are freshly baked items on the counter, additional to the menu. I ordered a delicious piece of savoury tart, smothered...in caramelised onion and with a crumbly, buttery pastry. My daughter was able to tailor her own item, by ordering toast and a side of avocado and bacon. The coffee was good. The prices are a touch on the high side, but justifiable because of the fresh home cooked food.More

There are five cafes in close proximity in Stanwell Park. We had just finished walking the Wodi Wodi track and were looking which cafe to choose. We chose 16 feet espresso as the food coming out of the cafe looked fresh and vibrant. The food...was lovely and the coffee was good. The service was friendly.More

There was one tiny negative, so lets get that out of the way first. I always do my research before I visit a place, and I have usually picked out the item I want to eat long before I arrive. I'm wacky like that. :)...When the business website says "We serve breakfast all day Monday to Friday and lunch is available from midday" and you visit on a Thursday, you are expecting to be able to get the breakfast menu items all day even if it is approaching mid-day. However on arrival we were told they had just switched over to lunch and the item I wanted to order - smashed avo with feta - was not on that menu. In fact everything on the lunch menu seemed like it would be far more food than I felt I could eat, so I just chose the banana and raspberry bread. I probably should have asked if I could still get the thing I wanted, really the worst they can say is no, but I'm not always that brave. The bread was delicious when it arrived and seemingly magically heated in that it stayed hot the entire time I was eating it, given it was raining and a very cold day I was surprised but very pleased that I was still able to melt butter on it to the very last bite. It was almost too much food for me, so I was glad I had not picked one of the burgers. The Other Half got the beef burger, which he rated 11 out of 5. He said it was one of the best burgers he has ever eaten and he is a burger guy. The chips that came with it were amazing - I would have ordered just a bowl of those if that appeared on the menu, it does not sadly. If I had enough room I would have picked this option as well, maybe for a slightly later lunch when I have more appetite the burger would be my pick. Given that they are building the Grand Pacific walk here, this is a location we expect to be returning to regularly in coming months and I think we have found our cafe. We will just have to make sure to be in time for breakfast, or hope they add smashed avo or a bowl of chips with something to dip them in to the lunch menu. The coffee was great, as was the chocolate milkshake. I loved the cutlery and plates, very cute! The bathrooms are rustic but clean as described by The Other Half. He saw the backyard area and liked it, too. Sometimes you find a place and you know that you'll eat anything from the talented people creating the food and enjoy it regardless of what it is. I feel like this is one of those places after our visit. I have never eaten a lentil in my life before, which is why neither of the bowls on the menu were an option I would have thought about ordering prior to visiting this place, but now I think I could like a lentil if these people work their magic on them, so we will be back and I might even be brave enough to try one of the bowls.More

We sat outside in the sun and enjoyed a spectacular chai and macadamia nut muffin, our coffee was great and I find it hard to get a good soy cofffee sometimes, but theirs was perfect.

This lovely cafe has an interesting story to its name. Menu was simple but delicious. Very family friendly. The Macro bowl with homemade falafel was very delicious and tasty even for a non vegetarian like me.

This cafe was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. We sat outside in the sunshine to enjoy our coffee and burgers although I had my Spanish burger with sourdough bread instead. Delicious! The cafe is well patronised by locals which is generally a...good sign. There is also a section out the back for seating and a playground. What i found fascinating was the history of Lawrence Hargrave, a pioneer of flight who lived and tested his kites etc in Stanwell Park.More

We visited this café on a stop off whilst driving further south. Popular spot on a Saturday morning. We enjoyed the brekkie roll and the smashed avo. Great coffee and plenty of seating out the back which was good for families.

Food was delicious and fresh. Cafe was busy with customers but there was no delays with the order. Priced well and the beach near by cannot be missed!

There is an outside area at the front where you could definitely sit and a ramp down the back but I’m not sure if the ramp is wide enough agree call ahead and ask
