We had three trips to Origin while in PD. I thought it the best place in town but my wife was split between here and Whileaway. I appreciated that the coffee at Origins was strong (i.e. they make coffees, not coffee flavoured milk) without displaying any of the bitterness you often come across. I also appreciated Origin's consistency over several... More

Funky little shop in the heart of Port Douglas Blink and you'll miss it but definitely take a look and you'll relax be surprised and have a little laugh at the memorabilia and quirkiness --- Read the Code of Conduct Coffee had a smooth taste, strong in flavour and taste and gentle on the stomach. Service excellent, a great place... More

Unfortunately we only got here on our way out of town and I realised we should have been here sooner. First decent coffee we had in town. A no fuss cafe, they don't muck around, just solid coffee served quickly. Worth a visit !

Sitting here reviewing 'in situ'. Hot and balmy day sipping a great latte. The best part is that after reading Pedro's review we knew it would be good. We laughed all the way here. Really good coffee, unpretentious place.

Origin still has the best coffee in Port Douglas. The staff are excellent, the cakes pretty good too. The setting is very pleasant and away from the hustle of the Main Street. Although we have now moved away from Port Douglas we are still treated as locals, so nice to be remembered.

Its a toss up between Origin and While A Away as to who serves the best coffee in Port Douglas, so I share myself around. I do like the "local" feel of Origin and the relaxed outdoor area. Great coffee
