Best value best variety on the menu I've seen in a long while like where can you still get a very generous serve of mince on toast that looks fabulous with a cherry tomato on top The coffee is not bad

We ate here for breakfast and dinner whilst on holiday in Cairns after being recommended it by locals. It's great value and really good quality food. The fresh orange is amazing and the salads are TDF! I had a greek salad with chicken and bacon added. It was gorgeous - I licked the plate clean. I miss it. I wish... More

We had breakfast and lunch here. Nice outdoor dining with free Wifi. Breakfast consisted of 2 eggs, 3 pieces of bacon, large sausage and 2 pieces of toast, coffee and fresh juice for 14 dollars. Very hard to beat. Hamburgers good value for money and stay together while you eat them. Great service, tasty food. Try their freshly squeezed juice.... More

Stopped by for a toasted bacon and egg sandwich and bacon and eggs for the hubby. Sandwich was amazing! Bread was still soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Hubby enjoyed his meal too, fast service and good sized meal :)

Had a Mega Burger for lunch today, it tasted great. Homemade beef patty was delicious . Fresh salad with cheese and beetroot and a side serve of chips. Friendly service with a smile. The only down side is that there is not a gluten free roll option. I will be back. It's hard to find a great burger place in... More

We had just arrived from Chillagoe after a long day out, and surprisingly most restaurants in Cairns don`t stay open very late. We found Hides cafe to be still open just, so we were glad to sit outside, put an order, and we started checking our emails (free internet here). The Philippino waitress was kind, but in a hurry to... More

Stopped in for a snack and the location was pleasant, the food was quite good, good price. But holy cow we waited forever for tea and coffee. When it finally came was ok but hardly worth the wait. My husband will just not go back. Also the waitress was a bit abrupt and had a go at another customer.

In the center of Cairns you will find a nice Hides coffee cafe, with excellent home made cakes (you get a huge piece), where they offer all day long delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. The prices are very reasonable and there is nice atmosphere. Everyone can find something delicious for himself.
