Tamborine Mountain is home to some of the VERY BEST coffee shops around!

For really, really good coffee (and all the goodies that normally go with it like choccies, bikkies and cakes!) start at the “Green Lane Coffee Plantation” where the actual coffee beans are grown, harvested and roasted to perfection!

Then work your way through the many coffee stops located all over the mountain. Many cafes have developed their individual styles and ambiance, often reflecting the owners origins and what their idea is of an authentic coffee joint – but they all have ONE thing in common – the desire to serve up an excellent cuppa, to make you come back for more over and over again!

Below you will find a selection of the best coffee joints around – and you are personally invited to visit ALL of them!
