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

It's hard usually finding a place to do a good long black and not burn the beans, but this place has never disappointed. Food is fresh and staff are always friendly and engaging. Highly recommend and will be returning again :)

Hidden little cafe down lane in Cairns. Overall the espresso was poor, cup was cold and therefore coffee went cold before it hit my table. The egg and bacon breakfast was fine but nothing spectacular. We did enjoy the juice which was bottled and made fresh and the atmosphere was really cool.

I have been coming to Caffiend since it opened (5+ yrs). It started as a Cafe that offered outstanding coffee and sweet treats. In later yrs, it has expanded to a full food menu Cafe - and all I can say is the FOOD is just as AMAZING as the COFFEE (and that is saying something, cause their coffee is... More
