Back up in Noosa for school holidays, the new manager is so friendly and goes above and beyond, new types of milk including bonsoy and milk lab to cater for my dairy free daughters, a true gem of a cafe we will 100% be back

Coffee is great! And they have oat milk! Nice to sit next to the river. Not much of a cafe rather a coffee window

We used to go to waterline everyday we were in Noosa.literally hundreds of cups of the best coffee in Noosa. Seems to have changed owners and the coffee is not as good and we have moved on.’



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.

Went to Beaus with family for breakfast on Sunday While we were holidaying in the Sunshine Coast from Sydney. The food, coffee, and service was exemplary. Special mention to the staff on the almond milk that they make themselves. The best almond milk that I have had in a cafe in years. Highly recommended.

Best cafe Clandestino Roasters in sunshine-coast for 2016

Good coffee but service is either unfriendly or too precious. Either way indifference to our coffee questions doesn't fail to leave an impression.

Outstanding Ethiopian single full of citrus fruits The humdinger piccolo was sweet like honey and bright The magneto pic was like dark chocolate.. Great coffee experience

Hands down best coffee in the region. Consistent and always impeccably brewed, always with a little card on the side that tells you what blend or single origin you are drinking. The loco is stunning, cosy yet spacious with plenty indoor and out door seating. There is a little food section which never seizes to impress me. Wholesome super foods and stunning specialty cakes. Can’t recommend this spot enough.

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

Thanks so much Lamkin Lane for being so accomodating of my kids dietary requirements. The atmosphere was amazing and the coffee was on point.

The B E S T coffee on the Sunshine Coast!! Friendly staff and atmosphere !! Having my morning coffee here makes the day ahead slightly more bearable!!

Amazing coffee with a nutty like flavour that made it so interesting. Impeccable service and great vibe. It’s the kind of coffee experience us coffee fanatics live for.
