We have been having breakfast here every morning on our trip to Brunswick Heads. The food and service are amazing! The servings are very generous and you can order breakfast dishes all day! The egg dishes are cooked to perfection and they have a good...variety of different meals plus accompaniments. This morning my husband had the Hotcakes with Caramelised peaches ,mascarpone and maple syrup, it was more than delicious!! Their coffees are also beautiful!! The service is impeccable and very quick . The staff are very professional and very friendly and it is so well priced. The café has a range of seating including outside under an awning, inside and window bench seating and it is a hive of activity! Next time we are in Brunswick Heads we will most certainly come back for breakfast every day! This café is a must when you visit Brunswick Heads.More

Food was tasty and prompt. The service was attentive and friendly. Would have been a 5 star job if not for the snake that was also allowed to dine in on the shoulder of its owner. Which didn’t sit well with my snake phobia and...made it hard to relax and enjoy my meal. But will visit again so no love lost here.More

Service excellent, coffee excellent. Carrot cake stale and inedible, after being told it was baked today. Very dissappointing

First time in Brunswick Heads so opted for a morning walk around town then breakfast. Was fortunate to grab an outside table. Then the experience. Wait staff so friendly so available. Even though quite a delay to place our orders (happens when venues are popular)...we felt comfortable and envious of the exquisite looking meals being served. Menu was nice balance of the normal v different. Coffee was fantastic - taste and heat. Ended up going back the following morning. Chose the Vietnamese pancakes both times. Unbelievable - taste and texture of the egg, the pancake and the salad and dressing through taste buds into a wild spin. My wife mixed it up second time with green pea pancakes - which she said exceeded the pancakes. Surely not. Anyway awesome all round and great valueMore

Opposite the river, this is a convenient and comfortable place for breakfast. A choice of delicious meals and good coffee was enjoyed available both inside and outside on the pavement. Waiter was friendly and efficient. Little extras, like individual pepper grinders, were appreciated. Poached eggs...were perfectly cooked.More

Fabulous cafe with great “Moonshine” coffee. Great staff where no request is ignored. Having a few days in the area and ate here twice as the coffee was great and the food and staff were memorable. I hope the owner appreciates his staff as they...were wonderful, the place was packed and they never seemed to loose their composure. Sure a few orders may have been confused but who cares. It was sorted in the end and being in the hospitality industry ourselves can relate.More

You must have brekkie or brunch in the Footbridge Cafe. The food is divine, the service is brilliant and provided by very young and friendly people. What a class act all around.
