Best cafe Urban Garden - Bury St in sunshine-coast for 2016

A friend recommended this. Fantastic! Barista was very friendly, coffee (takeaway flat white) was delicious. Milk was silky and the shot was full bodied without being overly acidic.

Went out of our way to get to this place for a coffee, thinking they’d be up with all coffee trends. No Bulletproof Coffee. And. No pouring cream to add to espresso. Very disappointed. So a small flat white it was, as my buddy had already ordered his and had paid. Coffee very weak and milky. No creme on top for that #coffeegasm hit !!! Not what I wanted for my coffee of the morning. 😒

Best cafe Compound Surf & Espresso in sunshine-coast for 2016

Surf & Drink Coffee

Exceptional! Shame I didn’t find out about this place earlier! Love everything about it!

In town for a couple of weeks. The coffees here rock. Chill surf vibe too.

Perfect coffee on the way home from a surf. Nice coco latte, chill vibes and cool shop. Will be back no doubt! 🤙

Best cafe Humdrum Espresso in sunshine-coast for 2016

Amazing coffee!! Cute quirky shop! Super friendly staff! Family owned and care about what they do! Using locally roasted Clandestino coffee!

Best cafe Little May Espresso in sunshine-coast for 2016

Good flat white. Good meals and house-made treats. Great experience.

Mixed experience - my partner’s long black was very good but my flat white was almost undrinkable. Different baristas made each though so I think I was unlucky.


YOYO Espresso


Best cafe YOYO Espresso in sunshine-coast for 2016

Best cafe Waterline Espresso in sunshine-coast for 2016

Keep on walking people; Toby’s Estate done poorly - weakly flavoured soy latte - just too milky. My feeling is if you are a local here you get the fresh beans. Paper cup only; some seating on the deck overlooking water but if you don’t like yappy dogs your peace and serenity is gone. Rubbish ? I was pointed to the council bin out the front... we don’t want your rubbish here! No social responsibility.

Fantastic location, excellent coffee, friendly staff. Can’t fault the ‘Waterline’ or paddle up cafe’ as us paddlers like to call it.



Kings Beach

Best cafe Beau's in sunshine-coast for 2016

A quality focused cafe servicing delicious coffees, teas and local chais, organic cold drinks and juices to complement our beautiful menu.Open 7 days from 7am, and serving dinner on Friday & Saturday nights. Licenced, with a boutique wine list, Tasmanian ciders and award winning Green Beacon Brewing Co beers.

Funky little cafe but the coffee very disappointing now Have been going here since it opened but lately the coffee has weak and luke warm

Best cafe Lamkin Lane Espresso Bar in sunshine-coast for 2016

Quite a good coffee. I’ll try a different blend next time.

Best cafe The Colombian Coffee Co. in sunshine-coast for 2016

Very very smooth coffee. Deserving of its rating. Would have liked the staff to laugh at my jokes... maybe my delivery of the line wasn’t great... I was nervous speaking being in such a cool place! Love the stickers!

Nice location behind the busy esplanade. Great coffee. Knowledgeable staff.

Best cafe CUBA ST.  in sunshine-coast for 2016

Today was about the 3rd time I have been here, the coffee was excellent, no bitter after taste and it didn't taste burnt. The girl that served me (unsure of her name... she had dreads and a gorgeous smile) is a real asset to the business with her fantastic service.

Best cafe Milk and Beans Coffee House in sunshine-coast for 2016

First time visit. Writing this after our second visit on the same day. Says it all. What a brilliant find!! Lovely people, beautiful coffee, lovely relaxed atmosphere. Did I say beautiful and brilliant coffee?? One of the best I’ve had in all my time drinking coffee. Being in the industry myself I’m a bit picky. Thought I ordered 2 serves of fruit toast, I didn’t. The girl on food/ floor promptly put one on and didn’t want to charge for it. That’s customer service, but I’m leaving you a tip in lieu of not taking my money. Next time we’re in town, we’re back in. I recommend this place in a heartbeat.👍☕️😎

Best cafe Little Cove Coffee Co in sunshine-coast for 2016

Really nice cafe! The cappuccino was a little bitter for me but still smooth and my wives decaf mocha was even better. Ancient grain fruit toast was delicious. Must stop if you’re in Noosa!

Amazing coffee shop. Lovely staff, delicious food and great coffee
