Best Brekky in Port Douglas

Hands down best breakfast in Port Douglas. Great food. Awesome smoothies and juices. And the service was spot on. Don't know why people are complaining about the price. It's great for what you get.

We found this little Cafe the day we got to Port Douglas. The menu looked great and we wanted casual outdoor seating. Our lunch was terrific! So many fresh ingredients and healthy to boot! Not expensive either. Definitely stop here if you're looking for a great and easy meal.

A good breakfast is one of the most important things to our holiday success and we found that Cafe Fresq ticked all of the boxes. Whilst not cheap, you get what you pay for and in the end it was good value for money. The blueberry pancakes were thick and tasty with plenty of berries and a lovely scoop of... More

Once we found this great little cafe we eat here every morning while we stayed in Port Douglas. The food is fresh, wholesome generous and very tasty. The service is also excellent.

Ate here several times during our stay in PD. Consistently really good breakfasts! Staff were on the ball, quickly clearing the tables (it does get busy and shaded tables are in demand) Kudos to the team and chefs as they really put effort in. Food seemed really fresh and poached eggs were cooked to perfection. Coffee was really good too.... More

Staff rudely told us the breakfast kitchen had closed and they wouldn't serve us food for another 45-60 minutes.

We ate breakfast twice at Cafe Fresq - great food and affordable prices. Much cheaper than the hotel buffet and better for you. Only problem is the limited seating available. If you can get a seat, try going for the shade if possible. The sun bites!

This place does a great breakfast - plenty of options all cooked perfectly! A great vegetarian big breakfast. We did have to sit in the burning sun which was annoying, but little to be done about this in Far North Queensland! Definitely worth a visit.

We happened upon this cafe by accident on New Years Day. The food was of excellent quality and different to the normal cafe fare. Plenty of healthy options and also fresh and tasty juices and frappes. The service was friendly, courteous and efficient. Highly recommend dropping by for breakfast or lunch if you're in Port Douglas.

Went here after reading all of the reviews and we were not disaapointed. Service was fast and friendly. Tables cleared and cleaned quickly. The food was fresh and full of flavour. Coffee was spot on. Only down fall was being such a hot day they couldve done with some fans and their high chairs are pretty mouldy and grubby.
