THE Tannum Sands Surf Club Cafe, Bar and Bistro is the perfect place for a chilled-out Sunday Session with family and friends, and it's all for a good cause.

Located on the Esplanade in Tannum Sands, the club's primary focus is to raise funds for the Tannum Sands Surf Life Saving Club, providing it with up-to-date training and equipment so it can continue to keep the beach safe.

The club caters for various functions as well as serving lunch, dinner, coffee, alcoholic beverages and more.

General manager Marisa Kent said offering live entertainment was a good way of engaging with the community too.

"We have also added our Sunday Sessions which are a big hit," she said.

"They are held on the third Sunday of each month with live music by local musicians."

Ms Kent, a local Tannum Sands woman, said the surf club had changed for the better during the past three years.

"We have gone from serving only two meal services a week to providing meals five days (a week)," she said.

"That includes lunches from Wednesday to Sunday, dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights plus our popular Sunday morning buffet breakfast."

Ms Kent has been the manager for three-and-a- half years and has loved every day.

"Really, where else would you want to work?

"I love seeing new faces come experience what we have to offer, and, of course our loved regulars who come and support us week in and week out," she said.

Good customer service is something the club strives to achieve, and an aim that Ms Kent believes her staff provide.

"We have great feedback in the way of friendly and efficient staff, terrific meals, great prices, a relaxing vibe and, of course, the view.

"Good food and great service is everything in the hospitality industry.

"Basically, if you don't have these then you don't have customers," she said.
