Dive into the 50s
Tamborine Diner is located in the beautiful Tamborine Mountain, off Main Western Road. It has been open for about two years since Mark Eddie decided to run a cafe and bistro with a 50s atmosphere.

As soon as I entered into Tamborine Diner, I realised the atmosphere of the place was designed to recall the fabulous 50s. Several photos of Elvis Presley, James Dean, Mae West and Buddy Holly were on the walls. Some of the tables had the classic chess pattern red and white.

I spotted Tamborine Mountain Diner standing at the Tamborine Mountain Information Centre. I was waiting for the group to arrive and then walk for about ten km to find the scarecrows on Tamborine Mountain.

Every year, Tamborine Mountain holds the Scarecrow Festival. Families and business build a scarecrow with different materials representing different characters.

Tamborine Mountain Diner stands out with its red building just off Main Western Road, not far from Tamborine Mountain Information Centre. I needed a caffeinated drink and I decided to visit Tamborine Mountain Diner. The 50s atmosphere call for the nostalgia of the times of the King, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean. I ordered my coffee, the service was good and the personnel were friendly. I had time, so I sat down at one of the little tables with the chess red and white and soaked in the ambience. The coffee was very nice and I appreciated my moments in the cafe to relax before the walk.

Then the group started to arrive and I recommend Tamborine Diner to anyone who needed a coffee.
