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.

Always one of our top go-to stops when visiting the Gold Coast. Great coffee (and the best pain au chocolat on the Coast!) with a nice outside area- and it's always a joy to hear genuine french accents in a french cafe! Charming and friendly...staff.More

A little out of the way from Broadbeach central but absolutely worth the short walk to get there. Passionate staff and the fluffiest and tastiest omelette, mine had ham, spinach and heaps of delicious cherry tomatoes. The fresh croissants and baguettes are highly recommended too....Loved the coffee.More

Don't be fooled by the run down Highway frontage, this is a really nice quality French style cafe with a really friendly team. If you're in the area, you must try it. We stayed close by and enjoyed each visit.

Great little French restaurant . Ideal for a long lunch with Friends sampling the French Owner Chef specialties . The fresh baguette is to die for as well as the croissants . We enjoyed the Pastries too.

A group of five of us visited Le Cafe Gourmand for a catch up lunch. We had a wonderful experience. The food was truly outstanding, especially for one of our party who was not familiar with French- styled cooking. The desserts were terrific, too. Add...in the friendly service (and lovely accent) and this was a wonderful lunch.More

Strolling along looking for cafe we stumble across this one. Two of us entered cafe and immediately we are bombard by two waitress asking ‘where you sitting, where you sitting!’ We don’t know yet where we want to sit and they push push ‘you sit...in or out where you want, what you want’ they say following us around. Oh my god. We overwhelmed! Then we at counter to view menu and we pick it up and the man say ‘No, That stay here, leave it, go and sit down’ pointing outside ‘go go, sit down’. Then he on phone. We walk out in disgust so rush, so overwhelm! We did not stay here and went to Little Mermaid cafe down street so calm and peace. Coffee at last.More

We stopped in for morning tea on a busy weekend morning. The staff were great, as were the coffee and hot chocolates. The Pain Au chocolat’s were excellent, as was the crepe one of the kids ordered. Thank you so much for accomodating our son...practising his French as he took care of ordering for us. Highly recommend a visit - tip - make a booking if you would like to sit outside.More

I’m sorry I’m not really sure. I just looked @ the menu & there are many “healthy options” I would call them as it is a traditional French cuisine restaurant but I’m sure they would do gluten free
