This was a gem of a find tucked away just past 4 Square. The coffee is amazing and they do some great slices and gelato. If heading north this is a must if needing a pit stop. Having passed this every day for so long,...More

Start at the southern end of Coopers Beach, walk across the stream and take the track to the shops. There you will find beach box, a great little coffee and gelato outlet. Perfect location. Basic food done well. Long overdue

I've only had coffee here but I have to say it's the best coffee I've had in the area. A new addition to the scene, here's hoping they are around for a long time.

Have visited Coopers Beach many times and always had trouble finding a great place for coffee. This beaut wee place opened in December 2017 and brings some more class to this great spot. The owner is sooo lovely, always has a smile and super friendly....More

Ran out of gelato several times. Why not store backups in a home freezer? And some truly awful flavours. But the young ladies working there were courteous & helpful.More

Thanks Karen, we did not run out of Gelato in March but we did run short for one day during the peak January season. We simply could not store enough to keep up with demand and misjudged the delivery time during the public holidays. Lessons...More

If I lived here I’d buy coffee at BeachBox every day. The coffee is A1, the staff welcoming, intelligent and knowledgeable and, most importantly, the coffee is excellent and consistent. These guys know their stuff!

Opened in December 2017. Steve, Lainey, and Taine are the owner/operators who run this 'beach box'. They specialise in gelato and coffee. Their gelato is out of this world - very European. Coffee is great too!

Fantastic coffee stop right in the heart of Coopers Beach. A little pricey, but then that seems normal in this part of the world. The staff are really friendly and the service is great!
