Obsessed!

My friends took me to this place for breakfast, I think it's my new favourite place to eat! The eggs benny sauce is my new obsession, the surface went above and beyond my expectations, Rhiannon deserves to be praised for her customer service, it's because of her that I'll be coming back again and... read more

I was strolling Cairns, in need of coffee and breakfast, and Dolce and Caffe looked attractive. It's covered outdoor seating along a pleasant street, and was bustling on a Saturday morning. I found a table, ordered up a cappucino, along with an eggs benedict breakfast. The coffee was the best I had tasted while in Australia for the previous two... More

Visited here whilst travelling with my friend. We had breakfast which was nice but the last serving behind the counter was very rude. When I asked for scrambled eggs instead of poached, she replied "No you can't have scrambled" to which I was quite surprised at her rudeness. She then went on to speak to her colleague whilst I was... More

This place had a huge range of wraps, sandwiches and drinks. Very inviting. It was very popular while we were there at the end of lunch. Coffee was great and my vegetarian Genova was tasty.

Nothing spectacular but happy enough. Poached eggs always good here. I would recommend the chorizo beans, served with poached eggs, ciabatta, feta and avocado, only downfall is stingy with amount of avocado put on my plate (literally a tiny trickle). And also the ciabatta is always burnt, can't really cut it with my knife, please take it out the toaster... More

Super friendly service, great coffee and opens early. What more can you ask for? They even had different choices of bread (instead of plain ol' white) on offer, and the mocha was one of the best I've ever had. Admittedly it was a bit on the small size for 'medium', but still good value for Cairns. The waitresses also helped... More

We had 2 breakfasts here as we enjoyed it so much. The food is amazing. Hard to get a table on a weekend morning as it is so popular.

We had breakie this morning at this restaurant and it was perfect. My poached egg on ciabatta bread, with fresh mushrooms on the side was tasty and cooked just right. My partners bacon and eggs were also done to perfection Our coffees were hot and strong. For $30 total cost it was excellent value. The staff were efficient and friendly.... More
