Great eggs Benny

We just had breakfast , I had eggs Benedict with ham and the wife had eggs Benedict with salmon. Plenty of ham and salmon with perfectly poached eggs. The coffee (long black with milk on the side) was strong and flavorful. The service was polite and efficient. We will return.

Friendly staff, great coffee and yummy filling breakfast. What more can you ask for ?!? Breakfast was about $15.00 - about the going rate in Cairns. I'll be back.

Good food, good service, good coffee. Fair pricing for the food quality you receive and wait time wasn't an issue.

Great food and coffee with a bit expensive price, but worth it! I had egg Benedict and my son had pancakes. BLT was also delicious.

Beautiful food, great coffee and service with a smile. The pancakes were superb. Filled with lashings of fruit and topped with maple syrup.

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 again!

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
