Have had coffee a few times here whilst on holidays & they haven't failed. Strong coffee with a great flavour. Very friendly service. Easy spot to find a carpark & heaps of other shopping close by if required

Great little cafe tucked away at the best part of the gold coast. We found the service very friendly and welcoming. Stopped in for coffee mid morning. Coffee was nice and hot. Also dog friendly which is great to see. Keep up the good work ***

Rude male worker. Very abrupt and sarcastic. Coffee tasted like it had been filtered through through a dirty sock. Pastry was stale and hard.

The Groove Cafe has a nice, friendly vibe and seems to function as a popular local meeting point. Inside it is quite small and intimate, attractively decorated, plus there are three or four tables on the street for those who like al fresco. Stopped in for morning tea - passable coffee (not great but not bad) and superior muffins. Did... More

We had a very nice breakfast (Eggs benedict), it was not overly expensive and the service was very good. It was also an easy walk from where we were staying.

We tried a few, missed some others, this was the only one we came back to a second time. It gives of the ambience of a coffee place and we were not disappointed by the coffees. They open early which also means they close early. Well worth a try.

Was my regular lunch place for the last year and was sad to see the old owners disappear. The new owners have put the prices up, made the menu more like what is available 200meters away at the other cafes in the strip, and already bagged the old staff to me, one of the reasons I enjoyed coming here. I... More

We had an opportunity to have a quick 'bite' in Tugun recently so after perusing the diffent cafés along the Tugun fromt we found this to be the most pleasing. It's a quiet lottle cafe with a bit of pervious history. I believe that it has been taken over either by new owners or Management in the last few weeks... More
