Called for coffee and had a very disappointing experience. Staff were too busy chatting to give good service and had to ask the waitress to clean the table. Order of cheesecake dessert was tasteless, dry and over priced. This used to be such a nice little café with good food and good service..A let down now and will not return.

We had an amazing breakfast here which was the perfect start to the day. The food was amazing and the service from Ryan was great. The perfect place place to start the day.

Didn't have a meal here but was pleasantly surprised with their selection of macarons, especially the jumbo-sized variety (approximately twice the diameter of their normal ones). And the macarons were quite tasty..... They also have a small booth across the street at the Rusty's produce market.

We had a great breakfast here. The food was very good and the coffee was also very good. I had pancakes with ice cream which I highly recommend!

I was recently attending a conference at Rydges Grafton Street and with my rumbling belly wandered next door to Macaron for some much needed Brunch. My colleague and I had been waiting a while as there was quite a line-up when we walked in (popular!), very conscious that we were missing the start of the next session of our conference.... More

Went here for Sunday breakfast. Ordered pancakes and French toast. Waited for 40 minutes so asked where our meals were. They arrived 5 minutes later but in terrible condition. The pancakes came out by themselves on a plate with a small dish of maple syrup but no cream, ice cream or grilled banana as the menu stated. French toast also... More

Unfortunately, got seduced by the lovely description of the prawn and scallop lunch dish. They were able to make a really nice smoothie (there is a lot of fresh fruit in and around Cairns) but the batter on the fish was far too thick. This meant that the batter wasn't properly cooked but the fish inside had been over-cooked. Simple... More

I suggested to friends to meet there as I'd previously had great service when the sisters owned it. Today was completely different! I sat down at a dirty table that needed to be cleaned and refreshed. Had to ask to have the table cleaned twice by the same waiter. This should have raised alarm bells with me! I ordered coffee...

Waited 50 minutes for three breakfasts. Every time we asked we were told it would be two minutes. One waitress was lovely and made us complimentary coffees to compensate and gave us a macaroon each. The coffees were luke warm. My friends plate was whipped away while she was still eating her toast! Water glasses were dirty and cutlery was... More

Being a Chef and in the industry for too many years to count I am disgusted in the management of this business. I have no idea where you found your so called make-up packed wannabe manager, but for god sake get rid of her before you lose your business to her negligence. I frequent most Restaurants and Café's in Cairns... More
