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

We're locals and, often after our early morning walk along the Esplanade, we drop in to this café for coffee and sometimes a bite to eat. The coffee is consistently excellent. They can even make decaffeinated well, as opposed to the majority of places around Cairns where it usually looks and tastes like dishwater. While other cafes in this area... More

Great location, excellent service and very reasonable prices! Fresh and very tasty rolls and wraps, with a fabulous brekky menu until 3pm! Had a Liver detox juice on another day which was just what my body needed. Will definitely eat there again when we visit again.

it's a good place to have coffee and a snack, a sandwich or something. coffee is quite good and ladies working there are pleasant and helpful. it is situated bit further from esplanade, next to the road so if you're looking for some special view, you won't get any.
