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.

It's a good start to your dining experience when you enter a venue & the manager steps up & shakes your hand, with a smile & a 'welcome back'. Yes we dine here regularly but obviously alot of others do too, as I see the same greeting offered to many others, nice touch Adam. I am not going to waffle on about this place as you can read it all in my previous reveiws. Nothing has changed & thats perfect! Please stay exactly as you are! Finally a place that stays consistent! I am sure that's one of the main reasons people just keep coming back. Still amazes me that it can be so packed but they are still so quick at getting your order out! Actually I watched the kitchen on my last visit & it was nothing short of furious! One tip we do now is have our main meal, then order a cake & coffee takeaway & sit over at the beach to have & enjoy the great view. Oh yes this is a big tip! If you want to be nearly guaranteed of a good table, go between 11.30 & 12.00 just before they change from breakfast too lunch menue. It always seems to quiet down for a second.

Home made cakes in this cafe are well worth the stop. Kingscliffe is full of cafes and restaurants. We walked the street before deciding where to eat. It's a shame this gem is not open Friday and Saturday nights because the coffee and cake are a great after dinner treat. Open everyday from early to 4pm, you can have brekkie or lunch but treat yourself to one of their magnificent desserts.

Beautiful food, we ate here twice on holiday, one of the yummiest salads I ever had! Tasty fresh juices and also serve alcohol. Friendly helpful staff. Location for outside tables not great as you are on the pavement with cars slowly cruising past but handy for beach access. I emailed before visiting to check if the gluten free options were suitable for a coeliac (1 in 70 Australians!) as many places the gf food is not free from cross contamination. These guys take the time to carefully prepare the gf food and there are many options as they have gf bread too. They are: Breakfast - spanner crab omelette , Eggs benedict, pan tossed haloumi, sweet potato fritters, garlic mushrooms, vego plate, big choux, the avocado, bacon and egg roll Lunch - all the salads, nachos, beef burger, lamb plate, bruschetta.

Disappointing breakfast overall. The crab omelette and nasi goreng lacked flavor, no seasoning what so ever, and had more garnish than main elements. The nasi goreng in particular had more carrots than rice... Inconsistencies with service-eg requested water for the table and were instructed by our waitress that it was self serve inside, although other tables had no problems having water brought to their table. No cracked pepper offered for our meals. Hugely over priced kids meal- essentially half a small waffle with a tiny bit of maple syrup and cream for $12. We were charged twice for the $23 crab omelette and on pointing this out to the staff, were given no apology for their mistake. Not recommended at all.

Went here expecting to spoil ourselves on a nice lunch. Was very disappointed. We were seated quickly enough and our orders taken promptly. The fish tacos were pretty tasteless. Ordered a coke and received about half a can in a glass with ice. When I ordered another it took 10 minutes to come out and I couldn’t help thinking, was this the other half of my can? Upon reading the receipt the Cokes cost $5.50 each, which left a bad taste in my mouth. Overall the meals, service, and atmosphere were all average, leaving a lot to be desired.

I regret to say that today’s visit to Choux Box was very disappointing, especially since past visits have been enjoyable. We usually go here for the coffee which is one of the best around Kingscliff and Tweed. Today I ordered the fried eggs on toast. The two eggs were TINY and instead of two pieces of bread to match the eggs, a single piece of bread was simply cut in half. Even though it is one of the cheaper items on the menu, the size and average presentation was not worth the money at all. The waitress practically slammed down my plate which almost sent the meal flying (I think she was being efficient or rushing). It was also disappointing to see her covid mask hanging halfway down her face. My recommendation to future diners is to get a coffee but not worry about the food. Sadly, the popularity of the venue seems to have meant that personalised interactions are rare and, in my case, a very average meal.

This was my 2nd visit to Choux Box & unfortunately it will be my last. Both times the food has been very disappointing. I ordered the Sweet Potato Fritters which were impossible to even cut as they were so overcooked. I probably should have sent them back!

We stumbled across this very busy cafe one morning while taking a walk along the Main Street and decided a few days later to see what the hype was about and booked a table for brunch the next morning. The 4 of us all order different meals, son number 1 had the big breakfast and it was huge , he struggled to get through it but said it was delicious. Son number 2 ordered the Waffles and they were amazing, very sweet and again a huge serving. Hubby ordered the garlic mushrooms and again, didn’t disappoint and I had the grilled halloumi, wow, it was great too. If it wasn’t our last morning in Kingscliff we would have gone back again. Next time we visit the area we will definitely pop in for a meal..

Beautiful food. We drove past and saw it was very busy, weren’t expecting a table but assumed it must’ve been good from all the people. Staff were very accommodating and food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend, only wish we could go again!

We went to Choux Box Cafe for breakfast, the staff were helpful and friendly. The food was delicious, fresh and tasty. The freshly squeezed juices were a great way to start the day. The eggs were cooked to perfection and the home made granola with fruit was amazing. Highly recommend

Every now and then you walk into a restaurant, bar or cafe not expecting much but then being blown away by everything the venue represents. We had a family reunion at Choux Box this weekend and I had heard the whispers it was a great cafe. I did reserve my judgement, however, within minutes of sitting down, I knew I was in for an experience. The service and friendliness are what grabs you first, the girls on the floor couldn't do enough for our group of eight. The kids poached eggs and bacon were spot on. The eggs sang as the kids opened them up. The father in law and I had poached eggs with garlic mushrooms, this is one of the best breakfast I have had in a long time. The coffee was fantastic and the kids washed it all down with three chocolate milkshakes. This is by far my new fav cafe and I am happy to drive any day of the week down to Kingy form the GC to have another experience. Going to road test the Haloumi with poached eggs when next down. Great morning in one of the best locations on the North NSW Coast

We stayed in Kingscliff for 4 nights and are breakfast at Choux Box in 3 of our four mornings. Absolutely delicious, great range of options, good coffee, very obliging staff. What’s not to like? PS try the honey and herb halloumi, it’s unbelievably good!

Now this place has been around for years and should know how to get it right. The staff kept asking to take our order, clearly we hadn’t even looked at the menus.. come on team, start reading the customers. When our food did arrive, I had the eggs Benedict, one egg was like a golf ball and the other was soft and lovely. The Turkish toast was hard and difficult to cut. The other breakfast wasn’t much better. Nobody came over to see if everything was ok... There are so many other great little cafes in Kingscliff, I would anyone to try one of these out before giving this cafe a go

The service used to be exceptional but lately service is deteriorating and food is unseasoned. I waited 10 minutes to get served for coffee and after another 20 minutes no one had come for the food order and the place wasn’t even that busy. I came back the following week, service was still slow. Poached chicken salad was bland and unseasoned. Used to be really nice but falling short these days

I ordered an iced coffee with a lovely waitress and asked whether or not the iced coffee had ice cream and cream, to which she told me that Ofcourse there was; I also asked very nicely to have a half shot of coffee instead of a full one, which she said was easily done. Fast forward to me getting the iced coffee i have taken a sip and there was no ice cream, the cream that was used was literally inedible and smelt like it was completely off. I was so guttered because I have had great experiences with choux box !! It doesn’t just go for iced coffees when I say that drink orders must be followed, as that’s what customers are paying for-
