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.

We had lunch here around 1.30pm on a Saturday. The menu had a great selection of dishes with something for everyone in our family - vegetarian and gluten free included. The food was beautifully presented, delicious and came out quickly. The service was great -...we made a few changes to one of the dishes and it came out exactly as requested. The Mary Cairncross rainforest Park next to the cafe is a great place to have a walk first to work up an appetite! Thanks very much, we will be back 😊More

A beautiful place. Unfortunately the food isn’t up to scratch. $27 for the big breakfast that had 1 mushroom, no beans, no butter and when we asked for sauce we were told it was $2 extra. My wife offered the ham omelette (25) which was...dry from either pre cooking and reheating, or just overcooked, the ham was pretty ordinary too. I’ll go to the park next time and make my own breakfastMore

Stopped in for a little treat after visiting the reserve (a beautiful rainforest walk and we were privileged to see many pademelons on this day). Even though it was half an hour or so before closing there were lots of mouthwatering things to tempt us...so it was difficult to settle on our teas and carrot cake - which was moist and delicious and just the right size to share while taking in the stunning views. Being the end of the day, it was quiet but we didn’t mind at all - very peaceful. The visitor centre and cafe have been completely rebuilt since we last visited and have been done very well - spacious, comfortable, and tasteful. Both indoor and outdoor seating - and looks like they have a great log burner for chilly days. Definitely worth giving a try.More

Lovely cafe with a beautiful view to the Glass House Mountains. Nice walks around too into the rainforest so allow time for this.

Beautiful view, next to bush land, nice setting and quite popular. I had a lemon slice and tea. Tea was good but the slice tasted like it had been refrozen a few times, it was hard and lacked flavour. However I heard others rave about...the lunch menu food and it did look appealing.More

This is operating within Mary Cairncross Park, a stunning location overlooking the awe-inspiring Glasshouse Mountains on the Sunshine Coast. The premises were spacious with a broad range of options from which to choose.

Tired of giving this place my business. Its closing times are very hit and miss as it doesn’t stick to its closing hours at all. Eg says it closes at 4:30pm I arrive at 2:30pm to find yet again it’s closed early for the day.

We got to the cafe yesterday around 1.30 and we ordered a steak sandwich which my partner liked, & I got a beef burger which probably is the worst burger I have had in ages. It tasted like the bun was microwaved which I guess...is alright, but it was microwaved for too long and my meat patty was over cooked. I felt like for what you pay for a gourmet burger, I could have a better one from grilld. The staff were super lovely, and the place has a nice view.More

Beautiful location, panoramic views over the glasshouse mountain ranges. Open late, it was a great spot for a cup of tea after an afternoon walk through the Mary Cairncross scenic reserve. Big Cafe with plenty of seating, clean and welcoming atmosphere

Visited the cafe when going on the rainforest walk. Managed to get a table in the sun on the terrace with perfect views of the mountains. The chilli prawn pasta is divine!

Great food, a bit of a wait to be served but fabulous all the same. Very nice decor, and the view is spectacular like most places in the area. After (or before eating) make sure you walk through Mary Cairncross reserve, it's just beautiful.

We held our daughter's bridal shower High Tea here on Saturday afternoon for 30 guests. Julia and her team were friendly and helpful in every way. The table settings were lovely, including beautiful little bouquets of flowers, which we were given to take home. There...was a great variety of food, and it was all delicious. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, the views were wonderful, and we were able to relax and thoroughly enjoy the whole experience. I have enjoyed High Teas around the Sunshine Coast, but this one tops my list.More
