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.

Coffee looked like a cup of milk. Young girls did not seem to know what they were doing. Obviously the owner was to blame as the staff had not been properly trained. We will never go here again. If you want a good coffee this...is not the place to go.More

Ordered a coffee and pumpkin smash and my husband ordered a toasted sandwich. The coffees and my food came out straight away the toasted sandwich took another 25 minutes with barely an apology for the wait. Nobody before us ordering food, the staff were too...busy socialising with mates in the store and each other. Coffee is good but that’s about it.More

we have mixed feelings about this place. first it would be nice if someone greeted you at some stage and told you where the menus were and the procedure of the cafe to order. the food we ordered was nice but the way it was...dumped on the table was like they didnt want you there. only one staff member looked like she didnt want to be there ( and if that was the case dont take it out on customers who help pay your wages) the others were friendly. food was nice - prices good - but wouldnt go back as i felt it just didnt have a good vibe about it, but on the other hand i do like to support local placesMore

We visited the Wheelhouse Coffee Shop at Lawnton this morning. Never again will we step back into the cafe again after we had a horrendous experience. After waiting for at least 3 minutes to have my order taken at the counter, whilst the owner seemed...to be purposely ignoring me, I made the flippant comment that “ the wait was long” when he did finally deign to serve me. (The lady behind me also commented that he was being rude in ignoring me standing there.) The owner aggressively screamed at me that I was rude and then proceeded to scream at me in front of the other patrons to “ Get out!” I gladly left. He then came out into the car park and verbally abused my husband and I and called him a “Piece of sh..”I thought he was going to hit him. I’ve never in my 60 years seen such an aggressive unprofessional nasty reaction from an owner of a cafe. It was ridiculous!!!!!!More

Lovely little coffee shop, couple comfy couches and coffee tables to relax and enjoy your coffee. Several tables inside and few outside to enjoy a meal or snack. Cheerful staff and good coffee and food. Great spot for coffee and cake or breakfast, brunch.

Visited at opening on what turned out to be a busy Saturday morning. My coffee was served promptly, but meal never showed, gave up waiting after 90 minutes. Asked for and was given a refund without an apology or explanation. Have been here irregularly for...3 years and those times were fine, however this visit was my last. Sorry team.More

Deserves four stars as the servers were smiling and quick. Our breakfasts were tasty and the coffee hot. But with customers speaking up to hear each other over the loud music, with the coffee grinder kicking in and the background roar of traffic; was way...too noisy to be a relaxing and pleasant interlude or venue to catch up with your friends for a chat. Plenty of parking and newspapers to read.Its because of the cacophony that we wont be back.More

Found this coffee cafe great with service and food. There is a good array to choose from. When I was there it was quite busy but the staff worked hard to make sure there was not too long of a wait to get your order....The food and coffee was served hot which was nice. Will be coming often.More

A must do breakfast venue n the pine rivers area. In my opinion the pick of the options are the breafast bowls. Packed with fresh fruit and homemade puree and granola. Simply fantastic. Very decent servings to. The cooked breakfasts also look awesome. Ive been...3 times now and will keep returning. The coffees are also made nice and hot if sought...just the way i like them. Highly recommended to locals and passers by.More

Why so yummy! Smashed avocado on Turkish toast. It really is that simple. Served in a very posh way demonstrating imagination and understanding of flavour fusion and synergy. Best of all, their coffee is always superb thanks to the exacting owner's attention to detail. Never...needs extra sugar. Say no more.More
