What a top little cafe. Yummy breakfasts at a great price topped off with friendly service. Choose a meal with mushrooms because they are to die for.

What a great un assuming place, I now now why it was totally full on weekends. The fresh quality of the food was sensational as were the overall meal sizes. It was pretty obvious after a while that Ric's was just as popular with the locals as it was the tourists. Always eat where the locals eat they reckon and... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and smoothies that was brought out to our table of 4. For the money, this has to be one of the best eating places I have visited in over 30 years. It's just a small cafe with a compact kitchen, but don't let that fool you! The staff work well... More

We were after a very light lunch and stumbled across this place which had just what we wanted - a variety of light food including sandwiches presented in either bread, as a foccacia or in turkish bread. The coffee was good too.

the owner was in the kitchen and it was clear he loves what he does. The breakfast menu has something for everyone. It is clean, there are heaps of tables and the food was great. Would have loved to go back but time didn't permit this trip.

Great place for lunch. We love the Asian salad. Always our first place to eat when we visit the Sunshine Coast.

We have eaten here before and it was great. We turned up early this time, just after 7 am and the owner wasn't there but a staff member offered to seat us and give us coffee while they finished setting up. Then the cook came out and told us that it would be a good 20-30mins before she could start... More
