Best coffee on the coast! Food never ceases to amaze me. Service is always friendly and prompt. Probably visit here a little too often but we just love it so much 😊

If you love really good coffee and enjoy a outdoor funky atmosphere head to Canteen. It also has a deal with the restaurant next door which sell delicious food. As a vegetarian my taste buds were tantalised as was my meat eating daughters. Love this hidden gem.

The coffee is good but the surroundings are a bit rough compared to other establishments. The area needs a clean and the seating could do with a refresh.

Great character with old cinema seats and tables made from palettes as the setting. The coffee is excellent and so too are their light snacks, such as the fruit bread. I haven't tried the full food menu, but it looks delicious - lots of reasons to return.

Not great seeing dog on table and seat. Staff should probably address this health issue. Coffee just great

Wow. This place is awesome. Lamb Koftas and Tabouli salad was a hit. Thanks to the friendly staff and chef. Top shelf.

This place makes the perfect coffee, best one I have found so far on my Goldcoast holiday. Service was also lovely. We have been back a few times :)

Go to this coffee shop quite regularly and nearly always get their white choc and blueberry muffin. Yum!!! Nicest muffin I think I've ever had. Their fruit toast is also yummy, with heaps more to choose from in their cabinet. Though I don't drink coffee, my friend says its one of the best she's had.

As noted above, it's the best coffee in Burliegh. Set in a quirky kind of lane way in the midst of the shops is both a cafe and a coffee shop. You can be served coffee in the various seating arrangements in the lane way, but food is served in the cafe. The cafe also has a nice array of... More
