Had Breakfast here on a busy Saturday morning. Wait staff were friendly and accommodating. DW had the usual eggs Benedict and I went for the corn, pea and sweet potato fitters. The chilli jam really made this dish. Coffee and bottled juice were both decent....Very minor criticism was the food could have been a little warmer. Tough to do with an outside table on a winters morning. We would return as there were a number of interesting items on the breakfast menu. RobMore

Breakfast average. Bread not sourdough and spinach uncooked thrown over the top of the cooked egg. Just appeared as though the chef just couldn’t be bothered.

We ate there on our first day on holiday in Mooloolaba as the restaurant is situated in the Mantra Mooloolaba Beach complex. We thought the Chicken Cacciatore was just that but it turned out to be the "Pasta Special of the Day" ($16.00 each). The...pasta was a superb fettuccine, with a delightful creamy sauce, and the chicken pieces were both numerous and tender. To top it off we relished our bottle of Giesen Pinot Gris ($36.00). The service was fast, friendly and professional and the al fresco experience on a sunny day wonderful below our shade cloth.More

Enjoyed our coffee so much my husband had 2. I had a delightful banana, honey smoothie. Helpful service where ice cold water was left on our table and the view from the esplanade was stunning.

We found this to be the best coffee and breakfast. Caters for all. The kids loved the pancakes with everything.

I stayed at The Mantra for a week with my son and stopped in here for lunch every day. The staff were lovely and the meals, coffees and smoothies were also perfect. I was planning on going to a different spot every day but the...staff with their big smiles and great service made it too hard not to come back. I’ll see you all again in May. Thanks so much for making my holiday up there even better. 10 outa 10 😃👍More

Terrible. Wouldn't serve us coffee unless we bought a meal. We are local lost us for good. The place wasn't anywhere full. Probably 20% so you would have thought that any business would have been appreciated. Actually they should be careful as they can get...done for discriminating. Very unprofessionalMore
