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.

I had the Thai-inspired vege stack and the texture and flavour were very close to a Thai fish cake. (I considered that a GOOD thing!) Excellenbt coffee also. Their food cabinet hd a great range of truly interesting items.

These guys make the best coffee in Nambour - hands down. The food is delicious and clearly made with a great deal of love. The type of experience you can only get from a passionate family business.

Lovely spot, tucked away behind a leafy patio near the library. The food is absolutely delicious, fresh and original - and decent portions too! Great coffee, cheery staff and a friendly 'locals' atmosphere. I only hope when the Sunshine Coast Council moves, this cafe still...thrives.More

Thats quite unique because so many cafes buy in from outside producers... so much so it can all be, literally, the same. The tart & the quiche looked impressive along side plenty of other choices. But Brown Sugar is fairly small with limited tables inside...& same outside in the courtyard. The girls are efficient and chirpy & ensure a happy atmosphere. The kitchen was cranking up something involving onions because after a short while the atmosphere inside caused eyes to begin to sting ... no room outside for retreat. Keep up the good work! Such 'home cooked' fare is hard to come by.More

Nambourv sometimes gets a bad rap, but this is a gem. Hidden away near the courthouse, we went there after our admittedly simple wedding. Food was delicious, ( the chocolate coconut slice was heavenly), service friendly, atmosphere really warm and welcoming.

Met friends for early breakfast. Great meal with a touch of difference. Excellent coffee all at very reasonable price. Small, intimate café with friendly service and shabby chic décor. Park in Council carpark further down Mitchell Street and walk up to café. If larger group...then book. Have always enjoyed eating here or just calling for a coffee and chat.More

We are so lucky to have a great cafe near our work place. The staff are super friendly, cheer you up any day. Muffins are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Coffee is great. Lots of gluten-free option for food which I...will try soon. Highly appreciated and recommended.More

Amazing Coffee and yummy healthy food. I would go here more often however unfortunately parking is a bit of an issue at the top end of town. It is definitely worth a visit though.

Directly opposite the Nambour police station this café is a very comfortable stop for coffee, home made cakes and lunches. The atmosphere is bygone days but the staff are really up to the mark. Some street parking and some underneath but a busy council car...park is only 50 metres away.More

Brown Sugar has yummy, healthy home made food. You can find gluten free and vegan choices. The service comes with a smile and they are helpful in suggesting different foods to try. It has become so popular that you can find it difficult to find...a seat,however if you are willing to wait a few minutes tables become available. The biggest down side is parking is not easy to find if you wish to park close to the cafe.More
