this place has always been 'cairns'. I've been coming here for over a decade, as a local and as a visitor, and it's always good. food is fresh and bright and the flavours are real. the smoothies and juices are wholesome and the breakfasts are imaginative but not over complicated. home made raisin toast with ricotta and jam and a...

Love this place always have breakfast here. Friendly quick service great food and coffee. Like the seating area on the deck as can see what's happening in the street which is always interesting when dining by myself.

This cafe is quintessential Cairns and there's not a better spot to eat breakfast in this beautiful city, The wide verandahs capture the morning breezes off the ocean and the food is consistently good. Perrottas doesn't have the absolute best coffee in Cairns but it's good enough to satisfy a picky coffee snob from the south and the meals are... More

Missed breakfast Sunday moring so walked up the street from Pullmans Hotel seeking a Cafe with Breakfast. There must be a god, since I stumbled on to Perrotta's. On the corner of Abbotts and Shield Streets in downtown Cairns, this Sicilian gourmet bistro is outragous. The breakfast was soooo good we returned for dinner where I was served one of... More

This was recommended to us as a nice place tor lunch and it certainly was. Situated on a busy corner, shaded by a large awning, we thoroughly enjoyed some delicious salads with very friendly and prompt service. The food seemed fresh and nicely presented.

Coming into Cairns on the last day of our holiday we happened up Perrottas - it was very busy (always a good sign) and justifiably so - we had an excellent breakfast - a bit pricy but worth it for the best breakfast on our entire holiday. Good atmosphere, friendly but efficient staff.

Unless you like servings sized as if they have come from an eight course degustation with a price worthy of one of Bill Grangers Sydney restaurants, this place is best avoided. Shame on me for being fooled twice at Perrotta’s: for lunch and the second occasion for breakfast. Located next to the Cairns Regional Gallery on Shields Street, the restaurant... More

Nice Place with a lot of Noise from the Street. Service was poorly Bad. We had to wait for Dome noodles over 45 mins. After complaining we had to learn that there are some Special People who have to be served first. Taste of Food is soso Never ever again.
