Service quick and smiles abound and menu is always of a high standard. How much better can a coffee get looking over Cannonvale Beach.

Mum and I visited Fat Frog Beach Cafe after a walk from airlie beach central. The smoothie I had was delicious and refreshing, while mums iced tea also hit the spot. The only criticism we had was that the glasses for the water didn't seem clean... I tried to find truly polished, clean water glasses but the ones I picked... More

The best place to eat, right on the beach. Reasonable prices. Lovely staff in there and they were so community supportive after cyclone Debbie. Went there nearly every week when lived there.

This cafe was recommended by the check-in staff at Mirage around the corner. So glad they did. A cool little cafe right on the beach; licensed and with great food. Partner had a steak sandwich, which came with chips. The chips were awesome, with good aioli on the side. They seriously deserve their own spot on the menu. I had... More

Terrible service, disinterested and incompetent staff. My friend ordered bacon and eggs and asked for fired eggs to be told sorry we don't do fried eggs. We both ended up ordering the eggs bene and it was really yum. This would have been a 1-2 star review but the good food pushed it to a 3 - if the service... More

Oh the Fat Frog just makes me want to sing their praises! From the beginning, amazing friendly staff, busy happy atmosphere, I love the coffee... just right, beautifully poached eggs... soft as they should be... dog friendly and an amazing view. Ladies and gentlemen you have this just right, keep up the good work.

Funky and friendly, unique and quirky ... the Fat Frog has gained an enviable reputation for amazing coffee (thanks to Campos) and lovingly housemade food while our stunning location at Cannonvale Beach means you'll always find a gorgeous gentle sea breeze that makes for the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the incredible views and laid-back atmosphere.
