Nice little cafe

We went to this cafe. A few times, purely for their awesome coffee. Nice little place with vintage character, staff seemes a bit rushed. There is not a huge selection of other things to drink or nibble, but definitely worth to go there for the coffee!

The customer service was ordinary to say the least, the coffees were cold, the lovely Daintree Tea was not drinkable, looking forward to a piece of cake but "it has not arrived today". Just generally a could not care less attitude. Have been here before and found it wonderful, full of a great vibe, friendly and welcoming. Today not so... More

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.
