Stopped in for takeaway to bring back to my hotel. Owner? Was very helpful and accommodating. Extremely friendly. Prices were on Par with other local spots. Food was hot and quick. Nice salad extra with spring rolls. Decadent desserts. Only wish they had to pack a fork in my bag.

Had lunch with friend here. What can I say - average at best. Had a Haloumi garden salad $14.

Friend had salmon and caper salad - same presentation except they had run out of capers (really??). Who manages the... More

I really like this place. The food and coffee is fantastic. Great customer service is hard to come by in this area but these guys and girls have it mastered. Always welcoming, smiling and interested in their customers. It's the small/simply things that have the greatest effects. Good job.

There is a lot of potential here. Service was excellent and there is this beautiful Bali garden decor. Was served very quickly and food came out exceptionally fast. I tend to walk to main street but due to rain stayed close to the hotel. I ordered avocado smash which was 14.50 and an extra egg for 3.00. The food was... More

We were surprised there was no option of sitting inside with air-con so we sat outside and sweltered in the heat. I guess this is summer in Mackay? We enjoyed a trio of dips for lunch and a BLAT burger which was fairly good. Coffees were ok but service a little slow. Lucky we were on holidays! Close to the... More

Coffee shop/cafe opposite Caneland Central Shopping Centre in Mackay. I visited for morning tea. Coffee was very good and there was a small offering of sweets (cake and slices) to accompany it. Service was good. Has indoor and outdoor tables.

The service is generally good although coffee inconsistent. It has a good ambiance and I feel with some quality touches and flavour to the food it could be a very good establishment.

What an awesome breakfast.,.... mud crab omelette! It was a great breakfast but make sure you get in early to avoid the rush and get the table of your choice. You will also receive fast service if you do.
