    Had a wonderful visit to Canvas and was delighted with my piccolo. Great service and love the quaint atmosphere. The barista seems to have a genuine fondness of his customers and always great to see regulars coming through the door.

    Canvas has the look that matches its beach location. Bright colours and an airy feel. It looked like a nice place to grab a quick coffee. The prices stumped me (2 espressos = $7...steep). They arrived and the crema has a nice caramel colour and was quite viscous. The taste was sublime. At the... Read more

    If I was a football coach and Canvas espresso was playing on my team, I would award them the most improved player award for 2012. Seriously! In a year when Gold Coast superstar Canteen (deservedly) received unforseen accolades, Canvas espresso kind of snuck in under the radar. But these two... Read more

    Light, relaxing and really good coffee. Canvas use 3rd Crack coffee-one of the best around. They've got a small range of cakes and savoury goodies that are much better than the usual stuff out there. Good place for gift shopping and some interesting art by the owner on the walls.

    Definitely 'Deluxe' beans - very nicely done without the finer nuances that they are capable of though. One hand tied behind their back as they only serve coffee in take away cups and the cup taint became particularly evident after 4 or 5 sips. Disposable cups are a personal hate of mine and most...

    In the Nobbys precinct this is by far the best option for coffee. They use Deluxe Boutique Coffee (roasted by Brendan Elcham from Canteen). Smooth full bodied coffee. Nice people running the place.

    A rose among the thorns of terrible brews in nobbys. The space is fresh and clean.

    The coffee 'deluxe' new to GC coffee scene is a really smooth and sweet. My only spot for a brew in nobbys

    So I had a chance twice this week to visit Canvas again. And both times left me very impressed. Two different Barista's, different times of day...afternoon coffee on Sunday and a morning coffee on Tuesday. It was busy Sunday afternoon, so there was a bit of a wait. Tuesday I was in and out in... Read more

    My first sip of the usual half shot pic didn't really impress especially considering all the others lately. However the consistent smooth flavour was just lovely. No big bang here. Will try ristretto next time to see if more flavour is evident. But this was exactly right this morning. Cafe is small... Read more

    This place confuses me. No where to sit and coffees in takeaway cups almost urging you to leave. Sad because it is a cool place

    Lovely location here, we sat outside with the sea breeze. The coffee was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the shop was lovely both inside and outside.

    I've had coffee four times at Canvas over the past few weeks. The coffee has been consistently good, not bitter. Good, friendly service too.

    Not being a local I often refer to the reviews to help make my decision in a busy market and while the average of reviews at great I'm not sold I'm sorry. Don't get me wrong the service was great, the food selection terrific, a loading zone out the front for that quick pick up (and yes service was... Read more

    Have visited Canvas twice now... Really pretty little place off the highway... They are using the same coffee as the guys at No Name Lane....the cakes are delish

    Easily the best coffee in snobbys. My takeaway dbl fw was nice. Well presented and flavorsome. Interesting arty feel to the store. So much to look at, with so little time that I had to wait. What puts this place above the rest in snobbys are the staff. I have found all to be into their coffee, not... Read more

    We popped in for brew, don't really like the atmosphere, too much going on that's non coffee or cafe related for my coffee time. People are friendly, don't know much about coffee though. Coffee was solid, definitely the best at the Nobby shops. My piccolo was carefully made, sweet, well put... Read more

    Perfect ristretto, great music and pastries are "guilt free" size.

    We came here for coffee every morning, early, before 7am (great for morning folk!) for a few days and drank consistently full bodied, delicious coffee.
    The menu is limited, but the food products are fresh, wholesome and delicious. The staff are friendly and efficient. Very highly recommended.

    I must have walked past this place 100 times before I realised that they did coffee. Grabbed two latte on the weekend and was very impressed with my first cup. Awesome looking art and some nice easy drinking flavours. So good I grabbed a second one, but that was less that impressive. The art was... Read more
