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

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

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
