We stopped at Toucan for lunch in Pambula. It was a great choice! The coffee is outstanding and the gorgeous owners make it themselves. Lunch of calamari and salmon on their own Italian bread (scrumptious) was very good. Service was delightful.

Nice cafe if you like being constantly reminded by the proprietress to give it a mention on Tripadvisor while trying to eat your breakfast.

Certainly do apologise if you felt hounded, we are just so passionate about our cafe & coffee that we appreciate people passing the word.
Perhaps the zealousness was at a high from a little to much coffee & "In Season" excitement.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review

If you want great coffee with a delicious breakfast you can't go past The Toucan Cafe. My absolute favourite is their Lambs Fry (be sure to pre-order on this one as Chris orders the liver to ensure it's freshness). My husband's favourite is the Big Breakfast. This is served in very comfortable surroundings with a nice wood fired heater in the winter. Staff are bright and friendly. Coffee and cake is also a treat.

Nice quiet vibe, good strong coffee.
Cozy atmosphere and simple but tasty menu. Off the beaten track but worth seeking out.

We ordered two lattes and were given two cappucinos (not a busy day either so no excuse). I've tasted this coffee twice and both times it has tasted burnt and was served way too hot. There are much better cafes around the corner.

Its saddens me that your experience wasn't the best at Toucan. I am sure if you had bought the error to our attention we would have quickly corrected with very humble apologies. Re our coffee tasting burnt - well I have to say that you are certainly allowed your opinion, perhaps it just doesn't suite your palette, people generally rave about our coffee, but like they say "Can't please all the people - all the time" Any how Happy New Year
