“Local cafe, local colour”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Veggie pizza slices, excellent home made soup but watery coffee. This back-packers rest stop is fun and impressive because its great to see young entrepreneurs make a go of it in the middle of nowhere

“Long wait & bad food”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

we went there for lunch yesterday,we had to wait 1 and half hr before we got the food. we were not shared the reason for delay so we just had to guess. it really messed our plan for that day. ate lunch around 3. i ordered the fish taco and it was terrible, stale taco, the taci wad almost falling apart,no flavor. i have never returned a meal at restautant but today was the exception since it so terrible(stale and no flavor) plus the waiting disnt help. Nearby table also waited the same time for a basic breakfast omellete and hash( unbelievable). we went there reading review online, i guess we are to blame for that.

“Potential Is Everything”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Love this funky neighbourhood bistro in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast for its pretty setting, artsy vibe and really good food. Chef and team will accommodate any and all allergies from no dairy, seafood to gluten-free with the meals being absolutely delish. Only issues are the level of service - needs ramping up to be a shining example of the fabulous hospitality one could experience in this setting, and cleanliness. A good dusting of floors and windows as well as all staff learning how to open same would allow not only fresh air flow, but the melodic sounds coming from the band shell to be experienced by inside diners as well as those fortunate to enjoy on the outside deck...especially during the idyllic summer evenings we're fortunate to have this year.

“Not so fresh and don't call it fries if it isn't.”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Given the health food vibe we were looking forward to a really fresh stir fry and a great salmon burger and yam fries. The bowl that my husband ordered included really dried out tofu and microwaved rice. My salmon burger was a good portion but baked soggy pieces of yam should not be listed as yam fries on the menu. We are locals and there are much better places on the coast.

“Awesome snacks ”
Reviewed 13 February 2014 via mobile

I love that it's vegan and a healthy environment. I have only had the desert squares and they are so good. It's a must stop on your way threw.
