Joined friends for breakfast on a very wet Sunday, we had booked an outside table for four. We were moved to a table inside, quickly and easily by the friendly staff. I like the menu at the Flying Nun with offerings being a little different. My breakfast Panna Cotta with granola was interesting with the Panna Cotta light and slightly... More

A must go to place. Fantastic coffee, food and service. Will certainly make a special trip to return. Great atmosphere. Menu although small, is wide ranging. Loved the experience.

The Flying Nun is in a beautiful setting with lovely tropical gardens. The food & service are very good. We both had a great breakfast. It is extremely popular for weekend breakfasts so I would recommend booking in advance!

Lovely setting and great menu. Unfortunately our smoothies were tasteless and my daughter had to pick out bruised fruit and bits of strawberry hull from her meal. We would have had coffee at the end of the meal but gave up after waiting half an hour for someone to come.

We love going to the Flying Nun as the service is always great and the food is fantastic!! Always the freshest ingredients and specials which constantly change. Absolutely love that we can also take our dog with us and there is plenty of room to keep her separate from other dogs so we can relax and enjoy ourselves.

This is in an old church which is really nolstagic. Staff and service are awesome but food and drinks are below average. Latte's so weak, & food isn't fresh, which is so unfortunate. Mgmt should do something abt food quickly.

We drove especially out here for breakfast on a Saturday morning whilst in Brisbane for the weekend. Service was very good and our meals arrived promptly. The menu is delightful. Something a bit different and there is a meal on there for everyone. The meals were plated up beautifully. Instagram worthy indeed. We really enjoyed a look through one of... More
