After walking past many times we thought it was time to try this little restaurant overlooking the beach at Coolangatta. It was so worth the visit and we left thinking we should have come a lot sooner. The staff were wonderfully friendly and were happy to serve any need we had. Menu was varied and reasonably priced. Open very early... More

Yum. Waitress was divinely lovely and happy, my soy latte was hot and delish and our breakfasts were big and quick to the table. They catered for my GF needs and even gave our little guy a complimentary dish of cubed watermelon. Big ticks for everything, and location... Stunning. We'll be back - well done!

Slow service during a non peak time. The food was average and for what we paid, two coffees and two breakfasts it was over $70. If the food was amazing, I would have been happy, but we didn't enjoy it at all.

Wait for main course and desert took a long time Steak was good, but dish was warm... More

My husband and I have dined here many times, for breakfast lunch and dinner. The service is always outstanding and the food is always very good. We have taken many guests who have stayed for holiday here, and the menu accommodates all. We are certainly grateful to have this as our local restaurant.

Loved the location opposite the water and not in a big row of cafes. Went twice in our stay. Muesli was to die for! Hubby loved the "haloumi " and kids enjoyed their eggs and French toast. Service was friendly. Food arrived quickly. Initial mocha was served in a trendy cup ( no handles and coffee too hot to pick... More

My partner and I dined here for breakfast for four straight days running. The attention to service was excellent. Many a restaurant in the area could learn a thing or two from Bellakai about service. The food and coffee was very good also...We'll be back for our next stay in Coolangatta.

Dropped by here for breaky with the family and was pleasantly surprised. It was a Sunday morning and the beach markets were on so it was pretty busy. The staff were very well trained and pleasant and the coffee and meals came quite quickly for a busy cafe. We liked it so much we ordered a second coffee. Lovely location... More
