Had lovely breakfast and coffee here. Recommend the Green Brekkie. It's actually down an arcade , but there is no advertising signage. You can also access via graffiti lane way. But definitely worth going.

Visited on a few occasions and was not disappointed. If you like good coffee then visit Caffiend. The cafe is trendy and the laneway graffiti is awesome. Cant comment on their food but it did look good.

Look no further for the best coffee in Cairns. Made with care. Served in funky and satisfyingly hard to find surrounds. Small but tasty range of food and lots of reading material.

Second best coffee in Cairns! "Industry One" just pips it! Great service. Tricky to find down a not well sigh posted alleyway.

Went back the following morning but was too full to eat, had a... More

Wiped down table myself as wait staff appeared uninterested. Ordered roast pumpkin on sourdough with a goats cheese dukkah with mushrooms a $5.50 extra. Soggy bread smeared with blob of pumpkin and perhaps one gram of what may have been goats cheese. Mushrooms shriveled and looked as if they had been dried in paper bag for a week. $6.50 raspberry...

I grew up in Cairns but no longer live there. However every time I go back to visit, Caffiend is top of my breakfast list. I am a sucker for their scrambled eggs. They previously made truffles scrambled eggs which were the bomb, but I haven't been able to order the last few times. My family are always happy with... More
