We ate breakfast here 3 times during our 6 night stay. We were warned on 2 occasions that there would be a 45 minute wait, but the food was worth waiting for - and better to know in advance. Between us we had the french toast, banana bread (homemade and incredible) and bacon/eggs. All very good with some great juices/smoothies... More

We had breakfast here twice, eggs benedict and eggs on toast. The wait for food can be quite long, but the food is worth it - perfectly cooked eggs, excellent bread - all the food is cooked beautifully. Also, they do this amazing hot chocolate - best looking hot chocolate I've ever been served. It is very nice to sit... More

I found a few good reviews about this place so we decided to give it a go and see what the fuss was about. We waited around 30 mins for our food however we were told it would be a wait and for good reason! The food is made fresh to order, so no reheated rubbish that is normally served... More

Very popular place, which can mean you may wait a little while for your food - not such an issue, however when 5 and 7 year olds are hungry they do not want to wait 15-20 minutes. Food was good and staff friendly. Coffee average, but on par with Port Douglas.

Had a few really nice breakfasts here. Omelettes were great. They had a big breakie junior which was really quite large for a very reasonable price.

We stumbled across this place and glad we did. Excellent coffee and an extensive menu. We went for breakfast and I had the veggie breakfast with a chorizo sausage! Fresh tasting and well cooked. However the place is very busy and you should expect a wait. Took about 45 minutes for our food but they had pre warned us and... More

It took about an hour for the food to arrive. And they weren't particularly busy. Don't go here hungry, or with small kids.

Good breakfast menu with the normal meals expected available plus a few good variations. I ordered smoked salmon with poached eggs and avocado all very tasty. The others had bacon and eggs with sausage, the only issue was the toast supplied not as ordered.

This place is on the corner on Macrossan Street right in the middle of town. The breakfast menu is excellent, nicely done eggs - friendly service, couldn't ask for much more. Have to ask though, do people really want salad greens under a fried breakfast? I don't. The place is always busy, get in early.
