Open for breakfast lunch and dinner, Benchmark is a child friendly cafe on the Sunshine Coast in the beautiful surrounds of Peregian Springs. Below is a reader review of Benchmark Cafe sent in by a delightful reader of EOWK….

We arrived around 2 and were very pleased lunch was still available…ordered the roasted pumpkin and cherry tomato quiche for our little one and found it very tasty, the sweetness of the pumpkin was to die for! We missed out in the pie of the day but tucked into fresh BLTs with toasted bread and crunchy chips (most of mine of course were swiped). Merlo coffee and lovely homemade sweets prepared us for the drive home…I had a choc mousse cake that melted in the mouth and the man dined on a tangy coconut lemon slice. The real delight however, as we found ourselves on the outside deck we found little ones well catered for…a little dining table set and cubby house -adorned with toys, books, a pretend stove and sink…it was lovely to be able to relax while our girl played along and we were well situated from other diners not to feel we were disrupting their meals. The manager made us feel very welcome! What a find! I just wished I lived closer.
