Little Parliament Cafe has been inspired by the style and the atmosphere of a cafe in Crete. The spacious cafe in Rainbow Beach offers a unique mood to enjoy coffee and homemade freshly cooked food. There is also a store for you to browse for products for the body, items for the house and unique gifts.
Little Parliament Cafe is located in the heart of Rainbow Beach, in the Sunshine Coast. Little Parliament Cafe is all about a simple, seasonal menu that showcases locally sourced produce and coffee. The food, the service and the atmosphere are great! The place is ideal for family, to catch up with friends or to grab a great coffee on the go while exploring Rainbow Beach or going to Fraser Island.

Breakfast is served from 6:30am to 11:30am. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Little Parliament Cafe works with local producers and seasonal supplies to make great breakfasts.
The pastured eggs come from Forage Farms in Kybong. Fresh sourdough is from Essential Grain in Noosaville. The garnishes are from Cooloola Microgreens. Sustainability is a journey and Little Parliament Cafe has set out on that journey from the beginning.
For more breakfast options, you find sweet and savoury treats in the bakehouse, located next to the till. Everything is made fresh in-house, from cakes and muffins, to ciabattas, wraps and more.
A selection of breakfast dishes are available all day, just look out for the round symbol on the menu.

Little Parliament prides itself on making a mean coffee. The Little Parliament house blend is designed to hold its own alongside any of your milk options. The black coffees use a single origin bean. The milks and syrups are Australian made, the latter using raw cane sugar from Queensland.
Little Parliament Cafe offers coffee beans for sale and it is also happy to grind them for you to take home.

Little Parliament Cafe was inspired by a trip to Crete in the Greek Islands. Small tables cloaked in blue and white chequered tablecloths filled the square of the town. Every seat was occupied. The hum of the conversation filled up the ears of everyone around. The people seated at the tables were seen with a cigarette in one hand and coffee in the other hand talking about different topics. The place was Micri Voulee, that translates in Micro Parliament.
Little Parliament Cafe also has a shop with products for the health of the body, objects for the house, gifts, toys and many more interesting items.
There are puzzles, candles and coffee; vegan leather bags, hats, glasses, books. reusable cups, cocktail products, essential oil perfumes. The shop has just received new stock of embroidery kits for beginners. Have you seen them? All available for purchase in the store.
