Being from Melbourne Australia, it can be a challenge to get the great coffee that my home city is renowned for. But this Cafe in Cairns was the best we found. There was no need to go looking for other cafes. The first time I was there was for a breakfast. The coffee and meals were very nice and the... More

The eggs with chilli jam are expensive (if you add the bacon and avo), but delicious! The coffee is always good. Only meal I would steer away from is the croque monsieur - eughhh.... yuk!

All men are created equal. Food however is not. My only regret in life is that i do not have 12 hands to give this place 12 thumbs up. - Food sculpted as if by the very hands Zeus himself; Amazing. Flavours as deep and as vibrant as a YoGabba Gabba episode. - The legal liquid crack that they serve... More

My nan and I decided to try caffiend for lunch. I googled gluten free places in cairns and this came up, I thought the atmosphere was great we were lucky to find a table with the lunch rush but even though the place was pumping with people we found a nice table for two. The service was great, the coffee... More

Breakfast was the Chilli eggs which was nicely done (perhaps a little on the expensive side for just 2 eggs) Latte tasted a burnt for my liking. Lunch I wanted to try the Pork Belly but it was unavailable so I went for the Terrine and was... More

Inside lovely open design and amazing smells. My partner had chilli eggs with bacon and avocado.. omg the chilli chutney was beautiful poached eggs will never be the same. I... More

Out of the three breakfast places we checked out in Cairns, this was definitely my fave. The calibre is up there with breakfast places in Melbourne. The only thing that didn't give it a 5 circle rating was the fact that when the waitress handed us our menus, she spouted off a bout 3 or 4 dishes that were unavailable,... More

Great cute place hidden in the laneway. Felt like being in Melbourne! The food was fantastic (had the chilli eggs with extra bacon and avocado). It was very tasty!!! But the coffee was OK. Tasted burned and very strong. However I would definetely go back again.

Not only was the food and drink outstanding, but the attentiveness of the staff was outstanding too. We rocked up with our 2-year-old and our hefty space-consuming stroller and no one batted an eyelid. More than that, the table service staff went out of their way to help us get comfortable. What a refreshing change from Cairns' usual ambivalent reaction... More

They put all this effort in their artistic creations but they forgot that you wanna drink that coffea and not make pictures of it! Awful taste, poor quality beans and burned coffea are the best words to describe this place . I really don't understand how people can rate it so high.
