“Fairly average”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

Fairly average sort of place in most respects, standard Australian cuisine. Gets humid there in the afternoons and for the price of the meal (trying to match a mid range restaurant - but you have to order at the counter) the quality of the food is average. Ordered the squid which was way too salty, cold water wasn't cold - overall not that great.

Hi David C, Thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We're sorry to hear that your visit wasn't as pleasant as we would have liked. Unfortunately Caloundra has been extremely humid and this has impacted on our Alfresco dining and our filtered drinking water. We are always happy to provide glasses and ice, or refresh the water in the urn once the situation is bought to our attention. We will endeavour to monitor our salting of the Calamari and appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Cheers Suzanne and Paul

“Great coffee”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Love a coffee? I found Cafe 21 in the main street of Caloundra...they roast their own coffee and it's consistently very good. Service is very good and the coffee has got me going back time and time again.
