Great local Cafe, using local produce when ever possible. Very friendly and welcoming, just what you need when having professional appointments at Flecker House.

I have been a long time customer of this coffee shop as it is just around the corner from my work place, however after today's expereince I will not return. I made a phone order in order to save time as I had previously discovered going to the shop and ordering took forever. I was told 15 minutes and my... More

Nice quiet little cafe tucked away on 2nd floor of Flecker House. Found on way to medical appt & now go there anytime when in Cairns. Nice coffee & cakes (with fresh cream!) plus lunch menu & meals look good. Pleasant owner

We waited and waited and waited. Looked like... More

Finding this place was a real treat. It is a smaller area than some cafes and up on Level 2 of Flecker House but the food is great. Prompt service by the owner himself and all the food is freshly made to order. There were some cabinet pies and cakes but sandwiches, wraps, toasted or not, are fresh with wonderful... More

Always had a good reputation with locals for food. Generous servings, good variety, wonderful setting. Visited today for Brunch, oh dear! Service very poor, attitude of staff not acceptable. One of the problems Cairns Restaurants have is poor or inconsistent service. While restaurant owners continue to employ back packers then complaints will continue. It's a shame because it has been...

This cafe is amazing with a great fresh light menu. We were there for lunch in between medical meetings etc. Its a welcome break from a stressful time. Quick caring and attention to detail was great to see.

My partner and I went there yesterday after a lovely stroll through the beautiful gardens. Unfortunately we can't say anything about the quality and/or value because after we waited 15 minutes for someone to turn up and ask for our orders we decided to leave. From looking at the menu it is quite expensive and one would think with prices... More

This Coffee Shop was fairly expensive but well worth it with a nice brew or a great coffee and a variety of snacks or meals to go with it.

We were captive clients - eat here or....nowhere. Food was sort of OK.. Customer service let them down quite badly. Probably understaffed and they just could not keep up with everyone t - there was a long wait. Also the staff seemed to have run out of steam even this was only 12noon and had trouble being polite let alone... More
