We discovered this little café on our first day of our holiday and kept coming back. For the coffee lover this is the place to visit. The best coffee from any of the cafes. We visited for brunch on our last morning and it was die for. Lovely runny poached eggs crispy bacon...mmmmm. A must visit!!

Expensive food and they only serve you a small plate. Avoid this place and go to the many many other better restaurants next to this spot.

Nice coffee here, but not quite hot enough for me personally I usually ask for it extra hot. Staff very friendly as a rule. Good variety of breakfast dishes & cakes/pastries. Nice sitting out on the esplanade watching the world go by.

Whilst staying in Cairns for a few days, we went their for their iced tea several times. The food was also very good, the portions being just the right size and good value. The atmosphere was so relaxing, it... More

I often pop in for a coffee and if I ever have time, something to eat. I love it, from the smiley staff, to the frothy coffee art! Worth a visit for sure.
