Ate breakfast here most days in Cairns as food always tasted fresh and coffee was great. Serve pastries, muffins, juices and cooked breakfast. Popular with locals which always says something. Tables are all outside. Recommended.

We called in one early afternoon for a light snack, as you do. The staff were friendly, and served up Great coffee with warmed muffins Mmmmmm, .And next door is the Regional art gallery, which after visiting you can get 10% with your cafe receipt in the gift shop.

Good value for money cafe fare and a great all round spot. It's almost too good because it's often hard to find a table.

A very pleasant breakfast and nice surroundings. Polite staff, but please, can I impress on you the importance of looking at someone when you are dealing with them, no matter what they look like. It really is very important in making someone feel valued. Other than that, I couldn't fault it.

I love this café! The staff; lovely, the food; sensational!! My partner and I often visit this little café and never have we been disappointed. Being regulars the food as been consistently great! We once experienced a serve of well done poached eggs and made the staff aware, from there the staff were apologetic and offered a return. Never since... More

Great coffee, great food at a very good price. The staff were also very friendly which is always great. Though you might think you'll find better value at other cafes, this little cafe is more than meets the eye as it is humble in appearance. I visited this cafe several times during my week in Cairns, for breakfast and lunch.... More
