Al Fresco Breakfast

Best cappuccino in Australia - so says my wife, who considers herself a world authority on this topic. We had a great breakfast - top class service and hot, plentiful food. Good variety and buzzing with atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

Can't beat the choice, or the service. Great for breakfast; just give them time to open (things do go a bit slower in the Far North!).

We called in this morning for coffee - we love Fresq coffee. A nice, big and strong cup :) staff are consistently friendly and good at what they do. We usually stay for breakfast but didn't have time this morning. Will be back for sure!

This is a really busy little cafe, the staff are running, the service friendly and efficent and the food really well presented and flavourful. This is a must for breakfast, the pancake stack was terrific and the eggs benidict really great. These are big serves so a late brunch leads to skipping lunch. Enjoy your relaxing time here.

I wish we had have found this cafe earlier in our stay! Amazing breakfast options to choose from-it took me ages to decide! You pay for what you get. Coffees not too bad too! Overall no complaints!

Have to admit, the coffee was as advertised. Had Sunday breakfast there and my double espresso was perfect. I didn't get a chance to try their Eggs Benedict as they were "out of Hollandaise Sauce". The waiter didn't share my appreciation for my joke about "what, you're out of eggs, butter and lemon juice?" I understood they must make it... More
