Found in bean hunter. Great contemporary fresh new open space. Supreme roasters (run by Supreme) - long black was as good as it gets even though I don't seek out Supreme beans. Looks nice for a brekkie or light lunch too..

This is the real deal. Coffee is taken seriously by a chilled Barrista. Choice of 4 bean varieties which is unique and each coffee is ground from a pre-measured cup of beans. Food was carefully prepared and delicious. The only downside is it is very small so come in an off peak time if needing a few seats for your group.

Just out of town with tables that look onto the beach. I had a coffee and eggs on toast. Belaroma beans (blend was a little boring) and coffee was well prepared although overfilled. Eggs on toast were quite good. Staff seemed disinterested but overall the cafe is good value with plenty of price points to pick from on the menu.

Recommended by the boys at Compound in Coolum I ducked up the road to Peregian Beach to try it out. Nice simple clean contemporary set-up with plenty of seating. I recognised the Barrista and we figured out that we'd last met when he ran Beachwood Cafe in Yamba (a great cafe by the way) some 6 or 7 years ago. As a Dutchman, Carlos is inherently direct (which at first glance could be misconstrued as arrogance) but he's a terrific character and clearly has a strong local following in what is a busy cafe strip. He's using Allpress (which I assumed he has been loyal to for years) which was prepared very well. As a long black drinker I much preferred the single origin. I snuck in a savoury muffin (caramelised onion, feta and chives) which was terrific, albeit a little on the big side. Next time I'll try a full breakfast - the dishes looked very interesting. These guys are pro's and if you are in or around Peregian Beach you must visit.

Bean Hunter brought me here. I didn't click to the 'breakfast bar' (toast and prep you bagel or toast yourself) so just had coffee. Was well prepared tasted great. In a quite spot one of the owners sat down and had a chat - the shop (coffee and surf gear) operates as a charity with profits directed to a Christian charity focused on children and surfing. What a great reason to be in business - it is a concept we are seeing more and more. I can't find better coffee in Coolum and so this will be my local for the week's holiday.

Recommended by a friend otherwise I might not have stopped - it is pretty nondescript from the street. Coffee was Allpress and with no single origin on offer I was a little disappointed even though the coffee was well made. The banana and walnut bread - which arrived after I'd finished the first coffee was good - took a lot of chewing. Nice decor which has struck a pretty good balance between cafe (daytime) and bar (nighttime). The size of the speakers on the walls and the leather bound drinks list hints at the daytime incarnation being worth a visit. Not sure I'd come back for coffee unless in the area where there is little competition.

One of those locations with a good profile to the street but feels hard to stop and find a park. Stopped in for breakfast. Coffee is the "Goldilocks" blend by Bear Bones Espresso. Long Black was very well made with a lovely rich creamy crema and tasted very good (although it seemed to lack body it was aromatic and finishes strongly). Breakfast menu very brief and the ham and cheese toastie was good home cooking - plain but tasty. The decor is a little bohemian and feels like you are sitting in a small pub - but without the smell of stale alcohol! Kinda like Paper Moon - I'm coming back...

Smart clean looking cafe with textures of timber that are becoming common now. Service very friendly. Meals were delicious (I had a Reuben sandwich which while more steak-like than corned beef/pastrami was very tasty). Coffee was fine too but I should have gone single origin with my long black as it lacked personality - even though well made.

Two outlets - down the back at the bakery (paper cups only) and in the restaurant (for gold old fashioned china!) I think I prefer the bakery coffee - don't know why as I don't like paper cups! The coffee doesn't match their food and bakery items in my view

Very nice cafe in the middle of the small township of Federal. The breakfast was delicious prepared with a lot of care. Coffee is a locally grown (and presumably roasted) coffee (called Moonshine). I'm afraid I didn't understand it - it tasted dirty and unrefined. Perhaps it might be better in a milky coffee. It was also served in a paper cup which I'm not a fan of unless I'm taking away.

Had a weekend breakfast with the family. Cafe was pretty busy so sat out near the curb (not very level). Coffee was OK but not good enough to make this cafe solely a coffee destination. Meals followed some 1/2 hour later which was fine for a weekend breakfast provided you're not in a rush. Meals were quite good - I had the breakfast BLT which was tasty if not a little greasy (a lot of butter smeared on the toast). The truffle scrambled eggs were nice too but very rich - my son could not finish them. All in all we would return if in the area but wouldn't go out of our way.
