Always friendly service and great coffee. Quirky and alternative without being pretentious. Usually very busy so you may have to wait to be seated but it is worth a visit.

We found this place closed but had to go back to try it out. *coffee shops in Australia tend to close around 3pm* I ordered the French toast and it had got to be the best breakfast I have ever had!

Stumbled across this place by accident whilst looking for somewhere to have brunch. The omelette was lovely and light, the poached eggs done to perfection and the coffee is delicious. It was a bonus that the owner explained how they blend their own coffees. A great little find.

Love to be able to write more about this cafe however on the Sunday morning we arrived there we were told to take a seat and that menus would be brought to us. After waiting half an hour and being walked past and ignored by the waiters we eventually noticed people who were seated after us being served so we... More

Saw it by TA, i decided to pass for a breakfast. While the place can be a bit hard to find (locals couldn't help me, and i passed in front without realizing it), this "hidden" side is a part of the charm. Loved the friendly staff, the graffiti in front, the coffee was delicious, as well as the mushroom toast.... More

Found this place on trip advisor and its simply the best coffee I've ever had in Cairns. Nice and close to Rustys markets so you can start or end a gourmet morning here. Enjoy

Absolutely wonderful cafe. Mostly locals which is a plus in a tourist town. The mushies? Just a taste sensation with the reduced balsamic vinegar and the subtle buffalo fetta. Topped off with baby spinach. Love the graffiti art, the laid back but very helpful staff and the lack of air conditioning (Peter 99 just complained about the lack of cool... More

A very average breakfast, nothing to rave about. Okay coffee just served on the cool side after asking for "Very Hot Please" No Air Con Sweating over my lunch just detracts from the experience Staff thought they were were way to "Über Cool” to be friendly and supply service with a smile

A must try if like me breakfast is your fav meal of the day. The coffee is just one of the best I've ever tried. We chose long black, soy latte and cappuccino and a success for each of them. The French toasts and Muesli were also a huge YUM ! I'll defo come back.

Stepped of our flight from Melbourne, collected our car and head straight here after reading recommendations on TA. We were not disappointed. The coffee and breakfast were both sensational. Service, rocked and the surroundings reminded me of Melbourne. We also got a great recommendation for coffee in Port Douglas which turned out to be another great coffee spot - thank... More
