Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a lovely lunch with the tentative staff that I gave three star because of the two wet smelly large dogs that their owners brought onto the Veranda. There was also a small puppy in the other corner that had a piercing bark that...ruined our lunch. The only kept telling it to be quiet but to no avail. I have been to cafe Aqua on many occasions with my two dogs, and I’ve always sat outside. I don’t believe Dog should be allowed on the Veranda or inside.More

We had the blueberry pancakes & bacon eggs. Both meals were nice, good portion size. Nice coffee. Good service. Reasonable value for money.

We passed it on the way to the beach and decided on the way back to have lunch. A very smart decision. I had the eggs Benedict and it was up there with the best I have had anywhere. Rest of family had great meals...that were generous and priced reasonably. Drinks were fresh and tasty. Definitely should be on your visit list!More

This place kept popping up as one of the top 10 breakfast cafes so we had to give it a go! We were a little underwhelmed as the food and coffee didn’t meet expectations. I am quite to coffee snob…but my coffee was too milky,...not enough coffee! Eggs Benedict hollandaise sauce was way too vinegary, I couldn’t finish it! And hubby’s sautéed mushroom and chorizo breakfast was also not up to scratch with the chorizo tasting more like hot dog! We got in early which was lucky as the place did fill very quickly so whilst we were left underwhelmed, it seems it’s clearly a popular venue for others.More

Beautiful food, I had the BLAT and my husband had the beef burger, both very tasty with really fresh ingredients. The bacon was delicious.

Good choice of dishes on brunch menu and very well cooked at a reasonable price. Good location just over the road from beach. Would recommend.

Faultless. Good food, good service, friendly staff, great breakfast ambience. We went twice rather than looking for somewhere else on our second morning (out of two) in Coffs.

Disappointing from the minute we walked in. They don’t do table service. We both had the big aqua breaky. We had cold hash browns and hard cold bacon. Eggs were small. Over all pretty disappointed. Smoothly and chai was good though. Maybe just get the...drinks and forget the food.More

Great coffee & food, mostly cooked to order with a very tempting range or cakes, slices and sweet treats. Quick take away or a lovely relaxed dine in option with friendly staff.

Staying nearby we had breakfast at this well situated cafe on Central Park Beach. A sunny outlook matched by their staff and a great range of food with very good daily specials. I had the standard bacon and eggs with coffee and all to a...very good standard. Wife had the special omelette which was well named.More
