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.

This place is very close to my hotel. We originally planned to casually come over for some breakfast, but it turned out to be so delicious. The service is excellent, and the food is incredibly tasty. You can't go wrong with any dish. We've been...having breakfast here for three consecutive days. It's a pity that we're leaving for Sydney today. I wanted to try more food. Next time I come to the Gold Coast, I'll definitely bring friends here for breakfast. Many thanks to the staff; everyone's attitude is exceptional.More

My wife and I visited this corner coffee shop on Chevron Island and advised the staff member Sarah, that we simply wanted coffee. Sarah was fine with that and the coffees arrived very quickly. Sarah had already brought out cold water and glasses - a...service sadly lacking at many similar places - and to receive our coffee so quickly was indeed very professional. I like watching staff wait on tables while I am enjoying my coffee. Watching their style, enthusiasm and especially their warmth and positive personality. Sarah has all of these traits and more. She was thorough on cleaning up after sloppy customers had gone and even wiped each chair, whether it was used or not. I cannot fault Sarah’s professionalism at all. Management is to be congratulated for selecting Sarah as their employer and FOH representative. Oh, and the coffee was bloody good too! 👍😎☕️☕️ Graham and Sandra. Hervey Bay QLDMore

This cafe is amazing! We weren't sure at first as we wanted something on the beach as we were staying there. The reviews were good so we decided to try it. I am so pleased we did! The food is outstanding - a french toast...donut - smoothies and coffees were so nice. The staff is super friendly even early in the morning and the atmosphere is great. This is one of the best!More

Came across this local cafe when walking on Chevron Island. It has a great atmosphere with seating outside on the pavement. Service the first two visits was prompt and friendly. Last visit very slow service. The brunch menu is fantastic and food was delicious. Fresh...juices very nice too. Prices are excellent for this level of food.More

This place is exceptional and the staff care. Off the main beach area where it’s a bit quieter and probably a locals favorite- food is very very good and the best coffee we could find in the GC. Be wary of those places on the...waterfront - this place is how those places should beMore
