Best coffee in town.

Four of us had breakfast at this funky little out-of-the-way cafe and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great service, great coffee (we had seconds!) and great food make this an absolute must. One of our culinary highlights from our week in Cairns.

Australia you guys can make some amazing coffee compared to back home but Caffiend your latte takes first place. 1 quick drink turned into 3 and way too much energy! Keep it up guys!

Interesting menu, great coffee and really friendly and pleasant staff. The cafe is tucked down a little alleyway, glad we stumbled across it.

I have been buying food and coffee for 5 years from this cafe, and the quality of both has been continually fabulous. The cold brew coffee is delicious. I took Sydney friends there today and they were very impressed with the food, they didn't buy coffee. Well done Olly and team!

After hunting round for 4 days we stumbled on this one. Problem with Cairns is its too spread out and unless you're a local you might miss great places. Great coffee.

Not a bad little place and I only really have trivial complaints. The menu had a couple of interesting dishes, and the eggs that were chilied (or something similar)were very nice. The coffee took a while to come out but once it did it was pretty good.

Great coffee, made just the way i asked, weak latte. Nicely tucked down an alley way which makes it great for families with young kids as they can sit in the alley way doing their own graffiti with the chalk provided. Was a bit disappointed that they only make fresh juices on the weekend, I am a great lover of... More

I didn't know this funky liitle cafe was in Cairns. I was walking down Grafton Street and stumbled accross the grafiti down the lane way. Being an ex Melbournite I knew straight away that this way prime street art, not a backyard grafiti artists work and that there was going to be an awesome cafe attached. I went down and... More
