My wife and I went for breakfast as we're both vegetarian and there are a few veggie options. There was a 25 minute wait for food, however they were completely upfront about this, so I didn't mind and appreciated their honesty. The food was very tasty, I had the zucchini fritters and my wife had an omelette. Both were filling... More

Lovely experience, the meals were great the coffee was great and the wait staff were efficient with a great sense of humour. You get the choice of sitting inside in aircond or outside in the fresh air. There is also produce you can buy inside.

We had brekkie here and thoroughly enjoyed it! Poached eggs were perfectly cooked and my hubby loved the avo on toast! Friendly staff and a great atmosphere.

By day two of our trip to Tamborine Mountain we had already been here twice. Cappuccinos both days, with the citron tart in a coconut crust added the second time. Really good. Seems like a place frequented by locals as well; always a good sign.

Spice of Life is basically 'just another coffee bar / cafe.' The staff are friendly to those they know but only ''so so ' to the rest. The food selections are at best only average. And the prices a tad more expensive than one would expect. All in all, o.k for the locals but for the visitor ?? Choose elsewhere.

This was my second visit to Spice of Life. The first time was a couple of years ago for lunch and remember we enjoyed our meals very much. Today we were there for breakfast and we weren't disappointed. The meals came out promptly with friendly service. The coffee was delicious, and the meals generous and tasty. Would definitely go back.

My family and I have visited this café every time we have come to Mt Tamborine for several years. Situated amongst the village shops, it is well away from the tourist strip and a little bit quieter that most well-attended areas. There is plenty of street parking and plenty of seating. It is a popular place to eat or to... More
