An axe-wielding man has terrorised staff while robbing a Gold Coast cafe.

The man, whose face was covered with a white t-shirt, entered the Eggersdorf Rd business at Ormeau about 5.30am on Sunday.

He used the axe to cut the cords of two cash registers before stealing one and demanded cash from a female worker before fleeing in a blue Holden Commodore.
