On a wet early morning in July, this restaurant was full at breakfast, mostly full of locals. I ordered eggs benedict which arrived in just a few minutes.

We breakfasted here several times while in Cairns. Great food, great coffee and service with a smile. The cafe was often busy but service and food consistently great and service was typically fairly quick.

If you are after good/quick service and amazing coffee - both takeaway and dine in, then this is the place to go.

We ate breakfast here and although they were extremely busy tables were cleared and orders taken and served quickly. This is a small place on the street and the staff were very friendly. Good value for money and great food.

I ended up eating here a few times and always found the food and service to be very good. The location is great, there is a huge range of food available and pleasant outdoor seating.

This café has very good coffee and lovely food for morning tea or lunch. We found the staff to be friendly and efficient. There are newspapers and magazines to read if you want to linger over your coffee.
