It's true that you don't get speedy service here but that's OK because I wasn't in a hurry being that I was on holidays in Port Douglas. We had just missed our boat and were looking to kill some time. I hadn't had a full strength coffee in many many weeks due to being pregnant and decided Origins was the... More

15 days in a row, brilliant coffee, great service, friendly atmosphere. Best coffee in Port Douglas? Definitely. Arguably best in the country. 👍

Have been the best coffee in PD for a long time.... Though they aren't open terribly late therefore if you are hunting for an afternoon coffee then you are out of luck. Highly recommend the iced mocha if you are looking for a cold beverage alternative.

Nice coffee, lacking in the kick I was hoping for as ordered an extra shot. Maybe the gentleman miss heard me ask? Nice setting and friendly staff

Dude, You should have let me know! Would have remade it for you in half the time it took to post your response here. If anyone else reads this, please if our coffee doesn't meet your expectations on your visit bring it in and we'll make it again. Cheers Glen More

Found this place on a previous visit to Port Douglas, so didn't try elsewhere - visited every morning for our daily coffee hit. 4 out of 5 were very good. Just the last day wasn't the same standard as previous days (a different barrista on??) - not as strong and not hot. Didn't take it back as there are always... More

With their coffee beans roasted on-site the coffee here is equal to the best of the boutique roasters in big cities to the south. Made with care and time the coffee offered to the punters is excellent particularly after an early morning walk on the beach. Locally made cakes and slices by Hummingbird accompany the lattes, 'cinos, and macchiatos. Patrons... More

Probably the only real espresso bar in PD, serving a good quality coffee with a strong taste. Service friendly and efficient even by Sydney standards. However, This is an espresso bar where you buy good coffee. If you want lunch etc then go to a coffee shop or cafe.

Serious coffee but don't expect anything else (with the possible exception of fudge cake if they feel like putting it on when you are there). Strictly coffee only (some tea) and with opening hours that are hard to define; OK up to just after lunch, but you seem to take your chances after about 2pm.

Hey Podgee Glad you enjoyed the coffee at Origin. We work really hard to improve and develop new coffees so its great to get some good feedback and know we're doing at least something right! We have The Hungry HummingBird who leases our kitchen and supplies us with their yummy old school cakes and slices. They're really popular and they... More

This place is great, eventhough you can only get coffee and cake. Service is excellent and their focus is just on the coffee, visited here quite a few times during our two week stay. Highly recommend it. Cheers

Even by Melbourne standards! Also more relaxed, less crowded and more atmosphere. Verandah is a great spot out of the sun
