And also the ciabatta is always burnt, can't... read more

Super friendly service, great coffee and opens early. What more can you ask for? They even had different choices of bread (instead of plain ol' white) on offer, and the mocha was one of the best I've ever had. Admittedly it was a bit on the small size for 'medium', but still good value for Cairns. The waitresses also helped... More

We had 2 breakfasts here as we enjoyed it so much. The food is amazing. Hard to get a table on a weekend morning as it is so popular.

We had breakie this morning at this restaurant and it was perfect. My poached egg on ciabatta bread, with fresh mushrooms on the side was tasty and cooked just right. My partners bacon and eggs were also done to perfection Our coffees were hot and strong. For $30 total cost it was excellent value. The staff were efficient and friendly.... More

My husband and I quite frequently enjoy a beautiful breakfast here. I love the pancakes and he loves their eggs benedict. I am a coffee lover and I generally wait for a coffee elsewhere. The family who run this are locals and so friendly! Definitely my husbands favourite eggs benedict in Cairns

This coffee shop is worth a visit if in Cairns. The food was very fresh, and the coffee good as well. The staff was friendly, and the prices reasonable. The menu was pretty extensive for a coffee shop, and the location very convenient right in the heart of town. This was an enjoyable place to grab a quick bite and... More
