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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I was filling in time and rather hungry after I had an appointment delayed. I ordered a fresh juice which was very nice. I am not a huge eater but decided to order the beef burger and so pleased I did, so tasty. I ate...it all as it was delicious.More

Easy service and very friendly staff. Meals looked enjoyable but as we only had coffee can't rate food. Our coffee was very strong and bitter lacking some mellowing effect.

We had gone to Tugun Lifesaver club to have breakfast to find they were not open for breakfast on a Saturday. So not knowing the area went looking for a cafe and found Groove Cafe.The cafe had a quirky ambience, very friendly staff and a...good inexpensive menu. The first sign of trouble was a staff member having to go to a shop to get smoked salmon as two of our party wanted the smoked salmon bagel.Coffees and drinks were ordered and arrived quickly. The coffees were good and well priced.The bagels were so hard we could only eat half and were told they had been frozen.The meals overall were small and with the bagels small amount of salmon only added to a diappointing visit.Even with the cheap cost it was not good value for the small amount of food we recieved. The staff were lovely and when we drew their attention to the bagels by dropping them on a plate to a large clang, they quickly offered us a refund or a choice of something else.I felt sorry for the staff as they are being let down by the quality of the food.More

Great little cafe tucked away at the best part of the gold coast. We found the service very friendly and welcoming. Stopped in for coffee mid morning. Coffee was nice and hot. Also dog friendly which is great to see. Keep up the good work...***More

Rude male worker. Very abrupt and sarcastic. Coffee tasted like it had been filtered through through a dirty sock. Pastry was stale and hard.

The Groove Cafe has a nice, friendly vibe and seems to function as a popular local meeting point. Inside it is quite small and intimate, attractively decorated, plus there are three or four tables on the street for those who like al fresco. Stopped in...for morning tea - passable coffee (not great but not bad) and superior muffins. Did notice the breakfast menu and it looked excellent - pretty good prices, too. If I get a chance to return I will definitely try for breakfast. Service with a smile, though no wifi, which is always handy to have.More

We had a very nice breakfast (Eggs benedict), it was not overly expensive and the service was very good. It was also an easy walk from where we were staying.

We tried a few, missed some others, this was the only one we came back to a second time. It gives of the ambience of a coffee place and we were not disappointed by the coffees. They open early which also means they close early....Well worth a try.More
