Great well balanced flavour black coffee smooth no bitterness - the two staff were excellent very friendly and great service was appreciated. Loved the recycled milk carton coffee holder

Have had coffee here for the last 4 days and each has been fantastic. Friendly service and happy to accomodate my preference (a dash of cream in the doppio ) I would happily recommend this place.

Having tried a number of things places in Mooloolaba this place is easily the best coffee place in town. They use a local bean called Clandestino which has beautiful fruity finish. The service is friendly and they even gave us a free coffee! The food options are pastries so we had a lovely light breakfast to go with the piccolos. This is the best coffee I’ve had in a while so I strongly recommend.

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 ShotHouse Brew Bar in sunshine-coast for 2016

Great flat white - mid strength and tasty. Service outstanding friendly and quick.

Very disappointed after such high reviews. Coffee lacked flavour.

These peeps know their coffee. The piccolo we had was well made with a strong smooth flavor. They also do cold brews and also have great muffins from a local baker. There is some seating outside in the sun so it’s a nice place to sit and sip on a coffee. Recommend.
