Caffiend is always busy and bustling, hidden down a little graffiti filled alleyway it has a very urban feel to it. The coffee is always decent, as is the service. The food has a bit of a 'hipster/yuppie' feel to it, which isn't bad, but I wouldn't take a fussy eater there.

I didn't have the food, although it did look delicious. I came everyday and had the cold press and it was a perfect start to my day. So glad I found this place!

Had the green brekky and the kale salad was exactly the greens my body needed and was craving! The fresh juice was amazing as well

Hidden away in an Melbourne type graffiti alley way. It is away from the generic breakfast spots on the Esplanade. The avocado smash and chilli jam eggs were delicious. We got the coffee shake and banana smoothie which were nice but not strong enough. I would definitely recommend this place and go back.

Had breakfast at Caffiend this morning and absolutely loved it. Coffee was also fantastic, big recommendation from us! We're in Cairns for four nights and will likely be hitting this place again before we head back to Melbourne.

I visit Cairns frequently and find the coffee and food at Caffiend of a high quality and standard compared to both Sydney and Melbourne cafe's. Service is on par with other places in the Far North (running on island time) however staff are always friendly! Barista's are trained to a very high standard and the coffee is sourced according to... More
