Greatest chocolate milkshake in port Douglas..... Yummy!cute little cafe on the main drag that offers decent breakfast offering in an unpretentious setting. Milkshakes are worth a little wait.

This place was opposite where we were staying (Saltwater Apartments) so it was very convenient, situated in the middle of Macrossan St. You can walk up to the barista on the street and order. Coffees came in good time and were very tasty. Plenty of people there who were ordering breakfast - food looked really nice.

Had to wait a long time for food even though it was after 3 pm and the place was not busy! Food was just okay. I think that it was on the expensive side for 2 fish & chips and 2 sandwiches plus 2 shakes = A$114 b4 tips?!? Service was cheerful when she took/serve the order.

I had several terrific breakfast meals at this restaurant in 2009, and said so here. Sadly, they've been unable to sustain their quality and service levels, and we were mostly disappointed this time around. Had trouble finding three chairs that weren't broken or wobbly. Waited and waited for a server (it was early, and only a few customers), and finally... More

Friendly service. Family oriented-kids received colouring activity/crayons. Food was nothing spectacular but it was edible compared to some quickie cafes. Located directly in the Main Street so easy access from markets and shops. Reasonably fast service too,wait time was adequate. Price average at $20 adult fish and chips, $10 for kids fish and chips

Really nice fresh food and great coffee, the staff were friendly as well. Not sure what other cafes are like in the area they could be cheaper but the quality of the food was well worth the price

Came here for breakfast. Had a fresh fruit salad and frappe, my partner had the ham, cheese tomato melt. Wish I'd gone with a savoury breaky - fruit was ok, great yoghurt but menu looks great. Will be back to try something else tomorrow. Delicious fresh juices and frappes.

I waited patiently for someone to show me to a table and had to ask if I could be seated in the end. Had to follow up on the whereabouts of my juice given it hadn't arrived even after my food had. Ordered a coffee for take away once I'd finished my breakfast which took a while. Eventually I had... More
