Only due to Rex's being closed I tried Byblos. NEVER AGAIN. Order was stuffed up. Service was terrible and no attempt to remedy was made. Health inspectors could do well to look at the place too

The food here is good and is reasonably priced. The coffee is also pretty good.

The main issue I have with this place is the lack of ventilation (you come out of there smelling like a fish and chip shop) and that some of the new staff seem to lack the basic skills to make a decent sandwich or roll. When asking for something (carrot) to be omitted from a sandwich three orders in a row, only to be ignored each time, the boy serving me did it yet again, then seemed stroppy that I had the nerve to complain and picked said carrot off with his bare fingers. He also globs big chunks of butter on the rolls rather than bothering to spread it, as if it is too much of a bother for him. I have pretty much boycotted this restaurant based solely on his complete lack of hospitality skills.

On a lighter note, there is a lady who mainly works the coffee machine at this place and she is just lovely and very efficient. They should clone her and get her to do everything in the shop. She's great.

While not fancy, love their coffee's - especially the iced coffee, always stop here when I am craving one - they are yum, large and icy cold (which strangely enough I dont usually find)

Homemade mediterranean sandwiches are good and also always satisfy a craving!

I have visited a few times, firstly the service is fast but not always friendly. The coffee is very weak so I suggest ordering a double shot. The sandwich menu is exensive but not overly healthy as it consists of a lot of meat and not much salad. In fact salad seems to consist of just lettuce and tomato. They promote the best felafels in Cairns, have to disagree, there are other places that do much better and more authentic. The menu offers a choice of bagel or turkish bread. I'm yet to see either, evey order just comes with a plain white roll. The food is ok here but nothing outstanding and better coffee can be found at most other places.
