We have been visiting the Old Danube since it opened a few years ago, four or five times a week actually. The coffee is second to none, the cakes and sweets are divine with many traditional European desserts that you won't find in your usual run of the mill cafe's. The service is excellent and the staff are lovely. We often take visiting family and friends here and they all come away raving about how good it was. The Old Danube is the closest thing you will get to a European cafe outside of Europe.

It was a busy Saturday morning yet the staff were all super friendly and we didn't have to wait long for service or for our drinks to come
At first we had trouble finding a table but it was ok in the end
Our friend had pre-ordered one of the cakes as it was her birthday, they brought the cake out with our drinks and it was divine. Not too sweet, very light and fluffy - it was so yummy!

The service is excellent, coffee better than great and the cakes are to die for. We take our grand daughter (2years) with us and she loves it. Service is everything and it is difficult to find anything near this place.

This is a cake shop that is definitley worth visiting, a great array of different European cakes to have with your favourite coffee or milk shake. I have been there many times as the service is friendly and cake great.You can also order birthday cakes which are always freshly made. If in Helensvale area, do drop into this divine cake shop you will be glad you did:)

The Old Danube makes wonderful coffee. It has a lovely atmosphere with the choice of tables inside and outside. The owners are very friendly as well. Highly recommend this place.
