I had heard great things about this cafe & the menu looked great. My husband & I went for breakfast on a Saturday morning. It looked quite busy walking in & I was worried that I should have booked but we were able to get...one of the last free tables inside. You have a view of the beach from the cafe which is nice & it is very clearly dog friendly which I love. We ordered the big breakfast & the scrambled eggs which came out nice & quick. The big breaky is hugeeeee. My husband couldn't quite finish it off & as i'm pregnant I couldn't finish all of my meal either. The cafe was happy to give us doggy bags to pack the rest up in & take home. This was perfect for our weekend getaway as it was breakfast for us the next day back at our apartment. I would be happy to go back again.More

I came here this morning after reading reviews and seeing good things. I had researched the menu and knew what I wanted to get! When I arrived I was greeted by a lovely light brown haired waitress to took me to my table and offered...a drink, I needed a minute so she said she would be back. About 5-10 minutes later I could see that she was busy serving a someone at the coffee counter and I could see that she knew about me as I caught her eye, so it’s is I no way negative feedback about her - She couldn’t help that she was busy... but the other three/four waitresses were all having a VERY loud catch up at the counter and couldn’t give two stuffs about me (one of the only three tables sat in the entire venue). I assumed there was table service as the other waitress had offered it, but after a while I just got up and went to the counter to order. The dark haired waitress had a very nonchalant attitude when she asked “what can I get for you chick”. Unfortunately half an hour after opening they were out of the second dish on the menu. The waitresses did apologise for that, and I understand it’s not her fault, but her blaze attitude and her excuse (the cream order didn’t come in) was a little off putting. If the cream order doesn’t come in surely it’s not that hard for management to run to coles and pick some up, it’s right down the road and I imagine this particular dish would be quite popular. I decided to go elsewhere as I really had my heart set on the breakfast panna cotta and the dark haired waitresses attitude turned me off the idea of eating something else from the menu.More

Hi Zoe, needless to say I’m completely devastated to read your review. We try our very hardest to make visiting us a great experience and thankfully for the great majority it is just that. Our standard of service is so very very important to me,...More

My wife googled a breakfast venue at Airlie Beach. Fat Frog was highly recommended and it didn’t disappoint. Good service with a menu for everyone. Eggs Benni Smashed avocado and for the serious breakfast the Fat Frog. Guarantee you won’t need to eat for the...rest of the day. The quality of the smoked ham the color of the eggs and the sour dough was excellent. To top it off very affordableMore

The best breakfast in our week away. Would go back instantly. Excellent friendly service and packed with locals, many mums on the school run. The Green Frog breakfast special presented poached eggs sprinkled with Dhaka, served with asparagus and avocado. There was a little bit...of hummus, some cherry tomato and an addition of lashings of bacon. The plate was full, excellent presentation, taste, texture and comfort feeling! Thanks Chef! Coffee ticked all the boxes, using Campos beans and being served in the right cups and at the right temperature. Thanks Barista! Highly recommended.More
