Good Coffee

Only went for an early morning take out coffee and it was made exactly how we like it. Strong and hot. The place is a restaurant but does take away coffee.

After watching this place from our hotel we dropped in for breakfast. Although the coffee was underwhelming the food was outstanding. I had the Asian style omelette and was not disappointed. The flavors where well balanced without being boring. Can't wait to try dinner.

We dined with friends during our brief stay in Townsville. Our friends booked the dinner and we were happy with their recommendation as they very rarely if ever, get it wrong. We ordered a selection of starters for our group of 5 including the Olives, Duck Pate, Pork Wontons and I think the Pressed Lamb Shoulder. This was a fantastic... More

If you only have one evening in Townsville, Jam is the place to go. Service is warm and efficient, there's an approachable sommelier with a sense of humour and passion for her work and I had the most amazing cheesecake I've ever eaten (go before the menu changes!). On a previous visit we had a equally amazing chocolate dessert I'd... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem. Great views of the river, great food and pleasant fast service. The menu is very wide for breakfast and we had a hard time choosing.

I was visiting my sister in townsville. We had the lunch menu, starting with the duck pate, prawn linguine pasta and peanut butter parfait. The food- The duck was very rich and beautiful with the homemade brioche. The prawn linguine, had slightly over cooked prawns but the flavours were lovely. The desert was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. The service... More

we were only in the area for one night so we called for breakfast the following morning. We only had a plate of fresh fruit and yoghurt with granola but the presentation was amazing as was the food. It was a shame we couldn't visit for dinner as well
