Coffee Cafe with a difference :-)

If you have a medical appointment, unsure how you feel? Have a pot of tea, coffee, beverage at the Flecker House Coffee Shop. They actually serve real tea in a pot with a strainer too. And all this with a smile. For a cuppa before or after your appointment, Flecker House is one on the good guys... read more

I had an appointment and arrived early so I popped into the coffee shop on the 2nd floor. Glad I did...had a pot of tea brewed with proper tea leaves..strainer etc..it is very rare to find this service. Lovely gentleman serviced me and nothing was to much trouble for any person; this includes school children, the elderly and others just... More

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

My friend and I went their as we had business there and had to go somewhere by 1pm. That gave us about 1/2 hr to get a quick bite to eat and sit down and relax while eating our toasted sandwich...well so we thought!!! I ordered Chicken, Avocado and Pesto toasted Focaccia. 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
