Look for the graffiti wall and head up the alley where you will find Cairns best cafe. Usually full of locals which is always a good sign. Cannot fault them on their coffee menu selection which always serves up something superb. The mushroom, spinach, feta on sourdough could well be my fav breakfast on the east coast! Big call but...

I've been coming to Caffiend for years after discovering it's existence by following the graffiti down the alleyway. Caffiend oozes of off-beat charm, with box seating and timber cable rollers as coffee tables. There is also interior seating with regular tables and chairs for those who don't wish to lower themselves onto a cushion on a crate! I always enjoy... More

Found this 6 months ago when we visited Cairns. It had not changed a bit and the coffee & food were above average. I had the vodka cured ocean trout for brekkie - wow. (you have to like fish to order this!) and hubby had the bacon & eggs. Does not have a cafe kitchen feel to the meals. More... More

This place is tucked down a little alleyway bursting with street art. The coffee is superb, the food is artfully presented and delicious and the staff are friendly. What more could you want? Very funky little cafe with the best coffee I tried in the tropics!

We always head for this place when visiting Cairns. The coffee is reliably great and the breakfasts are delicious. The poached eggs with chilli jam and pickled cucumber slaw is always a winner and the specials are worth trying - the scrambled eggs mixed with coriander, buffalo fetta and a hint of chilli and lemon was superb. The lane way... More

We travel to Cairns each year (often more than once) to visit family. On every trip, Caffiend is an almost daily "must do". Reliably good coffee, great menu, friendly staff and funky atmosphere. Orders can take a while during peak periods but if you are on holidays (like us) and have time to wait, then relax and enjoy the graffiti... More
