Not recommended could not drink coffee disgusting taste worst coffee on the Coast

Congratulations Black Market on winning the top spot on Beanhunter award. Very well deserved! Was in to try their latest single origin from Burundi yesterday. My favourite long black so far.

If u know ur coffees these guys do some of the best. They also change up their Single Origin on offer every week so us black coffee drinkers have a chance to experience flavours from around the world! My fav was the Nicaragua 🇳🇮

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

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

I love the “Grom” - a strong small flat white. I can say with confidence that this is the best coffee shop on the Sunshine Coast. It’s the only place I ever go back and buy a second coffee at after finishing my first.

These guys nail it every time! Seriously good coffee and one of my go-to places on the coast. Relaxed surf vibe. The banana bread is sublime.

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!

I had a piccolo which hit all the right notes. The complexity of the blend shone through. Friendly place with a great vibe.

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.

Disappointing - two of the four coffees we ordered were almost cold and another drink was forgotten. Some food was again cold by the time it arrived at our table.


YOYO Espresso


Best cafe YOYO Espresso in sunshine-coast for 2016

Best cafe Waterline Espresso in sunshine-coast for 2016

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

Read mixed reviews, but it they were mainly good reviews so decided to risk it. Very disappointing coffee, bland, no taste and drinkable straight away, my wife’s hot chocolate was also disappointing. Nil interaction with staff which I seemed to be bothering.



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.

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 Clandestino Roasters in sunshine-coast for 2016

Always great. These crew are the is a world beater..

Honestly the best coffee I have ever had. It is consistently exceptional coffee every time. I live in Brisbane and my boyfriend and I joked about driving to clandestino for a coffee. Can’t recommend this place more! The food and bakery is also great! You will not be disappointed.

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

Best coffee on the coast. Staff are friendly. Selection board is incredible. Their knowledge on their product is phenomenal. I use their beans at home, which everyone compliments on. Well done team. Ive become a coffee snob and cant find 1 that matches yours.

Good quick service. Great flavour and nice outdoor seating area. A good coffee experience :)

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

Best cafe The Birds & The Beans espresso bar in sunshine-coast for 2016

Always good coffee!! Great atmosphere with some pre made danishes etc and make your own toast..




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.

Milk and beans has produced a consistently good coffee for me each time I have been in house. Today I stopped in for much as well and the chicken burger was fantastic. Well worth dropping in for a good coffee.
