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

Terrible place! Inferior quality products - crappy eggs, cheap and nasty butter. Why open up a pattiisserie if you can't even get croissants right!?!? Lol. Not sure if it's the same people running it now, but when I went I witnessed the idiot manger or owner yelling at one her staff members, it was just awful. A place with great... More

Nipped in here for a quick coffee and croissant and was really pleased. Lovely little cafe with a wide selection of food and drinks. Outside seating area is small but enough and the croissant was really nice.

We enjoyed morning tea at Macaron last week. There is a good variety of macarons and desserts to choose from. The service was very disappointing and the staff seemed very disorganised. The food was good but probably not worth the $ that they charge.

I stopped in at Macaron's for a quick bite and a drink with a friend. I ordered two cakes, a coffee, a tea and a croissant. First off, it took me about 8 minutes to pay for it because the women who served me got 'stuck' on the phone with 'the boss' instead of just putting him on hold and... More

I went for the macaron thinking the shop would be as fabulous as the macaroon shop in The Rocks Sydney and is wasn't. Very limited selection of pastries. The display case was disgusting, the racks the macaroons were on were dirty. The macaroons themselves were weird, blue colored green tea flavor, green colored milo flavor. That chef must have been...
