We have eaten here on a number of occassions and we are always happy with our choices, the fish and chips and burgers are always nice and fresh and very tasty, we have told all of our friends about the cafe and we will return, 10/10

When we first arrived at our hotel, the receptionist highly recommended this place to us and it was very disappointing to say the least. I tried the burger and chips and had breakfast one morning and it was very sad.

Was looking for a quick cheap breakfast place nearby and the other reviews made it worth trying. One of the professional tv crew fishing show boats was there picking up meals before they headed out for the day. I had the mixed breakfast, sausage, eggs bacon tomato which was fine. Not greasy and did the trick. Coffee was pretty ordinary... More

This is not a fancy cafe , But they make a good breakfast for the price and a lot of the taxi drivers go there so it is good, clean food and great for the budget person. This place is on the main road in Sheridan street, cairns.

We were told at the Shangri La Villa that we could find free wifi here but (with the son absent) the staff didn't seem to even know what wifi was. We would've stayed for breakfast. It always surprises me that food venues don't offer such a simple service that people would actually base their decision to come on.

It's a small takeaway shop, though the burgers are big, full and very satisfying. The best burger I've had.

This used to be THE place to get great burgers. My recent visit was pretty disappointing. Firstly the state of the shop is pretty bad, just looked messy and uncared for. It was good to see the same guy still cooking the burgers after all these years but the lady taking orders at the counter just seemed so disinterested, bordering... More

I generally order the fish burger and sometimes fish and chips. Portions are very generous, however the the area located seems to attract a clientele that puts me off going. Can be a bit touch an go but overall good.
