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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I have been coming here for over a 2 years even though there are far closer coffee shops to my house. The coffee is so consistently good that it makes it worth it. The amazing service is enough to come back for alone, Si and...his team really make customers feel valued. I rate The Birds and the Beans as the best coffee shop in the Sunshine Coast, by far.More

Coffee bad. Bitter/ sour tasting... Service bad. Not from around here, maybe they’ve just changed hands? I see the good reviews but my experience was categorically bad. I will not return.

I chose this place based on them being dog-friendly and the great reviews and I am glad I did. They welcomed us and our dog (outside tables) and had great coffee and an almond croissant. If I could suggest better signage as we drove past...it once, not realising it was the place we were looking for (the garage sign is still prominent).More

We stopped in after seeing rave reviews but were left underwhelmed. First of all I have to say, the almond croissant was very tasty and very fresh which we loved.....but the coffee was just average. The interior needs a bit more atmosphere, it’s quite dreary...and damp.More

Great service and clearly popular - while we all observed social distancing. They offered $2 anniversary coffees. Delightful old world building at the top of a Buderim. Recommended.

We stopped into Birds & Beans Coffee (Vandy's Garage) for a coffee recently and enjoyed a brief stop there. The coffee was quite good and the boys working there were friendly and polite. The building is well kept and basic but I felt it lacked...a little atmosphere and maybe some background music would've been a good idea. A bigger range of both sweet and savoury treats would also be a good idea to enhance the coffee shop's appeal, as that side of things appeared very limited. Obviously a popular coffee spot locally, and it's worthwhile checking it out if you're up at Buderim.More

Calling a spade a spade... the coffee here was awful. I don’t understand how this joint has so many good reviews? Plus, strange trading hours? Will go elsewhere when in Buderim next.

A wonderful little place. Lots of room and toys for the little kids to play with/in. Retro fit out is great.

Super nice young people run this cafe, the coffee is tops! I’d like to see more “home made” cakes, biscuits, quiche etc to go with our drinks. It has a great atmosphere & we enjoy being there.

Every time the mate and i are working the other side of Buderim we call in for our morning Coffee, these guys are young, very pleasant, and regularly very busy, but at the same time quick. Always a good coffee and if we have a...little way to travel they are happy to make it a little hotter. Good work guys. Unfortunately it is just after our brekky and have not savoured the food, but all looks tasty.More

If you want to start your day right then this is the place to be! A perfect atmosphere in the beautiful town of Buderim. Young barista Blyth knows his coffee and provides quality service every time. Can definitely recommend!

A unique coffee experience - old fashioned petrol station meets up to the minute coffee shop. Great service, lots of GF options and the first time I have seen the idea of buy ahead drink later. Clever cash flow idea for small businesses

We stopped at this funky little cafe. They don’t do breakfast, just snacks to have with your coffee. We decided to have a pre breaky coffee. I only took 3 sips and couldn’t finish my coffee. Bitter and burnt. Won’t go back.
