“Great coffee by the beach”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I discovered this great little coffee shop during my weeks holiday at Marcoola Beach. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the coffee was great. They only down fall was they only had the nice cakes/pastries on the weekends. I had an almond croissant on the weekend I was there, and it was scrumptious. Marcoola is a growing beachside haven. But don't tell anyone :-)

“Little Boat a little haven”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

There is no finer feeling than walking into a newly discovered restaurant/coffee shop and instantly feeling at home: and that's just how I felt about Little Boat.
The place has a homey feel about it; the staff are obviously proud of the place and the menu and the food clearly showed love and attention was put into the presentation and the flavours. My wife had corn fritters which she enjoyed so much there was no offer to share; I had the Little Boat Cheese Burger and was delighted to see that instead of a stock standard burger I was served to mini-burgers made of tiny buns with the ingredients built into a stack topped by yet another tiny bun. Delicious!
It also occurred to me that if you were a traveller looking to escape the stresses and stressors of work for a couple days then Marcoola itself might be just what you need. Accommodation overlooking a beach that seems to go on forever; Little Boat nestled amongst two other eateries (Bulli's and Four Fat Fish) to meet your breakfast, lunch and dinner needs). Who needs the crowds of Mooloolaba and Maroochydore.
