Only three tables occupied for lunch on Saturday should have told us something.
The seating was uncomfortable. The service was good. The Barramundi was fairly bland. The Green Risoni Salad was mainly Risoni and spinach leaves. No pine nuts, no coriander, and only one stalk of Asparagus. Definitely not good value for money.
We won't be back.

Went here for lunch. I had a BLAT and wife had the pasta. Coffee came out quickly (flat white) and was good. Then waited an eternity for the food. We were already having a 1pm lunch so were pretty hungry, but didn't have food until close to 2pm. The BLAT was decidedly average. The bread was over toasted, so you had to work hard to cut with your knife. In addition, the lettuce and tomato had been toasted meaning the fresh lettuce and tomato were wilted and warm. The avocado was non existent. Bacon was nice and tasty. Wife's pasta was ok but smothered in a lot of cheese and very oily.

All in all, a lovely spot, let down by mediocre food and service. Not somewhere we will visit again given the huge variety along the strip.

We ate here twice while on holidays . The coffee is the best on the coast with one of the best views. The food like the service was ok...but could have been better.

For a light lunch and a good coffee, Jamaica Blue is a good choice. With beach views to enjoy, comfortable seating and friendly and helpful staff, you can't go wrong here. The food is fresh and satisfying; not too heavy for a light lunch, well presented and easy on the wallet. Just dropping in for a coffee and cake is a pleasant experience as well. Definitely somewhere to come back to again.

We have had coffee and cake many times at this fabulous little restaurant on the beachfront at Mooloolaba. The staff are always helpful and polite and for some it is difficult to understand that table service is offered here. The meals are always fresh and lovely and the coffee is superb. We always select a table right out the front where we can simply sit and take in the wonderful views without any of the noise of the passing pedestrians. If you visit here, try the Orange and almond cake... I have heard some say that it is "to die for"... for me it is simply scrumptious. Don't forget to hold up your number to pay before you leave.. it is so relaxing that I have nearly left without paying (although the better half usually trips me up and sends me to the desk to pay). We will visit again. Thanks for your friendly service and lovely food.
