I travel to Cairns for work regularly & although I stay in Premium accomodation on the Esplanade, I always walk to Dolce & Caffe for a Chai Latte & Acai Bowl. Excellent food & service to match.

We were on our way to another restaurant, however the menu and freshness of the food made us stop here. We were glad we did. Everything was as described with quick friendly service. Clearly a local hangout as well! My colleague returned numerous times for coffee.

Always really great iced coffees. My partner is quiet fussy and rates cafes on how good they make ice coffees which is actually hard to find. Eggs bunny is a fav of mine to order. Efficient service.

A few mornings in a row i stopped by here for brekky. I opted for mostly light meals and found Bircher Muesli was one big heavy clump of goo, but nice fruits with it. Needs some milk on side please. The staff are friendly kind & efficient.

In between flights we decided to stop in for a little breakfast treat. Sista looked after us with a complementary cold water to accompany our lovely breakfast.

We stopped in here for lunch after landing in Cairns. I would rate the food as a four, we had a yummy chicken salad and a salad wrap and the portions were a good size and able to be customised. The coffee was only average although I am not a fan of the Segofreddo brand so perhaps that was why.... More

Service was a hi light, but the breakfast was very good representing good value. Good coffee and a relaxed setting close to the action. A nice breakfast experience.

Coffees great. Juice - great. Salad - mediocre. Avocado mash - alright. We came here in the morning and had espressos which we liked very much. I had my juice adapted so that it doesn't have banana as I'm intolerant to it. I had apple, mango, ginger and spirulina and it was great! Then we came here for lunch as... More
