We had breakfast here, and while, not as expensive as other breakfast places, i still think this was pricey for what it was. Very bland and uninspired. Their poached eggs were perfectly cooked though.

Went up to Cairns for a trip with the boys and after tripping over the steps (haha) looking at the Menu, we decided to give it a try. Staff was very friendly, gorgeous and helpful. The food was amazing and the coffee was great. Well priced considering the good quality food served. We ate here every morning for the entire... More

We went to this cafe for breakfast and I can recommend it enough. The service was amazing, the food fantastic and the friendly staff really went out of their way to accommodate us. There was 8 of us altogether and the staff quickly made room for our group and joined tables so we could all sit together. The food was... More

Such a great place for a coffee and breakfast! Sandwiches are amazing and the coffee is great as well, on top of that the staff is just so friendly and fun! Don't mind the haters here at trip advisor! I really recommend this café!

Visited for breakfast and dined outside in a busy outdoor seating area. Ordered our food for it only to be incorrect. I ordered two breakfast dishes and pointed to each so it seems the staff have difficulty reading or listening. The staff were very unhelpful. When we noticed the staff of their mistake they offered no apology, just if you... More

We flew into Cairns on an all-night flight and headed straight from the airport to downtown Cairns. It was breakfast time, we needed food and - most of all - we needed COFFEE. We came to the right place. Trip Advisor had given Dolce & Caffe a good rating and TA was not wrong. It's a patio cafe - lots... More

Stopped in after a day of scuba diving on the GBR and needed something refreshing for the walk back to my hostel. Decided on the Chai Latte Shake for takeaway and it was out of this world!! Well worth the $5.95 I need to make time before my airport shuttle to grab one more tomorrow. If you're looking for a... More

This is a little gem of a cafe in the heart of cairns. Came back 3 times in 4 days :) Warm prawn salad, and the Roma wrap my favourite. Couldn't recommend this place anymore. Very reasonable prices. Might be back again before we leave tomorrow :D
