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

There is an ignorance and arrogance expressed in their code of conduct that is mirrored in the owners response to many reviews. What the hell are you are doing in the hospitality trade? It appears that if everyone does not buy into your ill placed self belief, you dismiss them as fools and morons. Have a good look at yourself.... More

Hi Pedro NP I can see from your review of Lure Restaurant that you are a regular visitor here to Port Douglas. You have obviously left your sense of humor on the plane on this visit You will be happy to know for your next visit that the Shell Service Station are serving $1 coffees and apparently they are pretty...

Fabulous coffee and great service! Loved the rustic setting! Makes Port Douglas so much more interesting to have a few more businesses/cafes away from Macrossan St! Keep up the good work team!

Took us a few days to discover this place, which is about 100m from Macrossan Street. These guys are serious about their coffee and that is what it is all about. Amongst the best coffees I have ever had.
