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.

Staff were friendly, service was quick, and food was great too. Pricing was moderate with serving size plentiful (ordered Breakfast Wrap and Big Breakfast). Location right next to the beach was great. Would recommend!

Unfortunately we can’t tell you how the food was as we couldn’t get past the front of house - they lost the service of 20 people that day who were staying all week. Everything was too hard and was spoken to rudely when trying to...negotiate the seating with them. We took our business down the road where they couldn’t have done more for us. It’s not hard to be politeMore

Twelve mains on the lunch menu all around $30.00 and five starters from $12 to $20. The house made nachos were a generous serve and very tasty. The house salad was crisp and fresh, and the steak sandwich also tasty. This is the second time...we'd been to Deja Vu (deja vu) – attracted back by the quality and value of the food of our first visit. A very pleasant semi-alfresco setting with friendly and attentive service. Parking can be a challenge around Mooloolaba.More

My family and I went to De Ja Vu for lunch and were delighted by the friendly staff and quick service. The food was fantastic, but what really made this a memorable experience was just how approachable and kind the staff were. With cafes, typically...you have to find your own seat, but here we were personally seated by the staff, who made us feel welcome. Not to mention the fact that all seating is under shades, which is just lovely to ensure nobody gets sunburnt during lunch! Our mood was then further boosted by the fabulous food (definitely try the Barramundi!!) and great drinks. Definitely a must try if you’re in the area and looking for a great spot for breakfast/lunch.More

What you want from a cafe is good food, delicious cakes and slices and of course excellent coffee. Just as important though is the quality of the staff. De Ja Vu Cafe has wonderful owners and staff. Engaging and generous in their interaction with customers,...you could not ask for a more delightful experience. During our 3-week holiday in Mooloolaba, we dined at De Ja Vu most days. Over time my wife and I developed warm relationships with many of the staff and the owner of this family business. The coffee and food tasted even better as a result! Try De Ja Vu Cafe; you won’t want to change!More

You can tell from the outset this is a popular place amongst locals and tourists as their regular spot - and with good reason. The coffee is good, the food is delicious with adequate portions, but the highlight for us was the staff that were...both efficient and incredibly friendly. Don't miss out on browsing the pastry cabinets before you take your seat! A prime location in a tourist hot spot is of course not going to have budget prices but it's certainly reasonable. When the weather is good, grab a spot nearest the beach and enjoy the view. There's plenty of shade on offer - and lots of places to sit even during wet weather. Will definitely be going back again.More

This place is good for a lunch that's not too expensive. The staff are friendly. However, they clear tables a little too quickly.

What an awesome place. Called in for lunch yesterday and came back for a coffee today. The curry taster plate was terrific and we also had a steak sandwich (very tender and a decent piece) as well as the salt and pepper calamari. Very fresh...and generous portions. The best decision we made was to have to pork buns as an entree. So fresh , and again very generous portions. Have marked this down to return.More

De ja vu was a great restaurant, the food was really good and the staff were so nice and kind. The coffee was a very generous serving however their juices weren’t the best but their milkshakes were actually quite nice. The kids pancakes weren’t pancakes...they were more of a pancake but they were one of the best I’ve ever had I’d rate them a 9/10. The avocado toast was easy to cut off not and the fruit toast was delicious. I would definitely eat here again and would recommend it to others.More

Fabulous spot for breakfast. Food was absolutely delicious. As a group we have a number of dietary requirements and they catered to all of them. Great price for great quality food. And the service was fabulous too. The young man who served us was so...polite and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. He interacted with your group of middle aged ladies and he was a delight. Highly recommended spot to enjoy the best of Mooloolaba.More
