Great location and Ric is a fantastic host! I love the all day starter kit - anything that serves chips with breakfast is a winner! I've been eating this for 10years of holidays to the coast and I never get tired of it! Well worth stopping in for a feast!

A lovely cafe with SUPER friendly staff and owner. Good selection of food and drinks and at probably the cheapest prices we had our entire time in Mooloolaba. It's right by the beach entrance to Mantra Mooloolaba beach. Happy to support a lovely family owned place like this.

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.
