The coffee was lovely, the cafe pleasant, service fair. We were not very hungry so decided to share a meal. Roasted veg on bruschetta with feta. The portion was so small, just one piece and not enough to satisfy me alone and I'm a little person with a small appetite. It was very nice but at $13 on special and... More

We went for breakfast at Wild Bean at 7am before work one morning. We were there for a bit over an hour & there were leaf blowers going all around us the entire time. At some points we could barely hear each other speak & certainly were not able to enjoy the peace & tranquility of the rainforest as planned.... More

I visited for the first time today and what an unfortunate case. I bought a cup of TEA and a Chicken sandwich with pineapple and cheese and it cost me 20 dollars. Is that the normal price? By the way the chicken was ordinary and the tea which must have cost 10 dollars was quite good as it was a... More

I have eaten here a number of times now. The food is great. Good portions and fresh salads. Very nice setting, very peaceful and happy, friendly service that will keep me coming back again and again. Most definitely recommend this cafe!

Went there for lunch last Friday. Placed our order for coffee and food within a couple of minutes of arriving. Coffee arrived soon after. Unfortunately so did the Cairns City Councillors who had obviously pre-ordered their lunch. After about 40 minutes and asking when our food would be ready, we were told "5 minutes or do you want your money... More

Have visited here a couple of times, and with allergy conscious family members, each were pleasant experiences. The gluten-free cakes are moist and tasty, the fresh juice combinations very refreshing, and a superb chocolate brownie also.

Okay coffee, menu is too large for the staff/space to keep up with, food is meh. I don't understand why they have to coat the edge of my plate with balsamic reduction when I was having poached eggs and mushroom! Every time I put my knife and fork on the side of my plate I got sticky balsamic on them.... More

I have been a couple of times, and haven't been disappointed yet! i've even gone with my kids, and felt that the staff were welcoming and understanding (some cafe's/restaurants frown at you for bringing your kids!) the nice lady even offered us some colouring-in books and pencils! I can always rely on a nice coffee, and the food is awesome!... More

Had 2 horrible cappuccinos and a bone dry chocolate brownie here. Service with a grimace. Steer clear. Shame, it looked like it had great potential in a very pretty location.
