Very popular coffee shop so I suggest you book a table. Coffee and service very good. We didn’t eat here but the food looked so good.

This has got to be one of the best Cafe's around. Great food, cakes and coffee with consistent excellent service from owners / staff who care and know what it takes to make customers come back time after time.

On a day trip to Coolum we wanted to visit The Caf to see if its good reviews were justified. They are - and more! The Caf had a lovely, vibrant atmosphere with a mixture of young and mature patrons. We got there around 1.30pm...and were lucky to find a table. I had eggs Benedict with a big chunk of beautiful salmon. Mum had an amazing omelet with voodoo smoky bacon. Just delicious! Then we had cakes and coffee including an affogato. Their coffee is worth all the praise other reviewers have given it. Excellent friendly service and good COVID-safe practices. Find The Caf and enjoy!More

Rosti with eggs and bacon was AMAZING- pickled fennel & broadbean hummus accompaniments made it.. Bacon & eggs well done. Great service- young woman running front service & tables was really good at her job. Fabulous coffee ( friend is dairy free & was super...impressed with coconut milk coffee too). Will definitely return.More

These guys have a great range of dishes available. It is one of the best places I know to frequent if you are holidaying/travelling with anyone who has special dietary needs. They will be well catered for here! And the food and coffee is delicious.

Hi Kelly, so sorry for slow reply! Yes we do welcome dogs in certain areas outside. We just ask that walkways are kept clear and a leash is used.
