Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great little pop up Coffee and Gelato and yummy food to cater for all. We stayed at the comfy accommodation so morning was a step out the door for a great Latte - they do all sorts - coconut , soy , oat milk. Great...looking food in the cabinet and the Gelato was spot on for a sunny afternoon. Friendly owners - pop by - it's sure fire winner for morning coffee and a bite to eat.More

Best coffee around and the Gelatos are Devine. Very friendly Steve and Lainey working hard to make everyone so welcome. Set in amongst the shops at Coopers Beach. Be sure to visit when you in the area.

Lovely fresh coffee, good tasting beans and well brewed. Add a salmon bagel or a lemon curd muffin and your day will go well. Consume here (outside) or take down to the beach. Good recycling/waste reduction practises. Owners are public spirited, see vax requirements.

Terrible service and weird covid fears and discrimination. They are are outdoor cafe that do not offer a takeaway service - everyone has to show the vax pass - absolute nonsense for a coffee cart style place. I walked away in disgust even though I...showed them my vax certificate because others were being discriminated against for no good reason.More

Sorry, but your post and review are ignorant of the COVID Protection Framework rules. To be clear, despite the fact that we are a kiosk, we have outdoor tables under our control which means we fall under the Food & Drink rules. This means we...More

Coffee really good. However the member of staff telling everyone she wouldn’t get a COVID vaccination ( because she didn’t want a sore arm) has slightly deterred me from returning.More

I stayed at By the Bay along the beach. It was a lovely 13 minute walk to get a real coffee. Highly recommended!

Good-looking place and good location. Very bland service, it would’ve been more pleasant to help myself than coax any info from the serving person..good coffee although it wasn’t extra hot as requested..average blueberry muffin that was very sugary sweet, not sweetened by the berries as...I would have liked, it was fresh with a nice texture though. Will try once more.More

Thanks for the feedback Kelly, we pride ourselves on our attentive service so we'll endeavour to be better on your next visit. Try and come on the weekend when we do our specialty almond croissants, they are in great demand though so be early :).

My iced mocha was slightly flavoured milk and ice cubes. However, the lady who ordered one after me had it all blended and crushed ice. I actually had two sips of mine - it was flavourless. I threw the whole thing out and was bitterly...disappointed. The blueberry sorbet was sugary and the flavour wasnt very good either. Coffees were great but I were definitely let down with the rest.More

First time visit to the BeachBox Cafe at Coopers Beach was a delight! The coffee was devine, as was the vegan ginger slice. Guessing as it was vegan (I’m not) that the ginger slice contained no butter or eggs, but the end product was gorgeous,...superior to any other ginger slice I’ve had for some time.More
