We ate here twice while staying for a week in Palm Cove as we loved the fun and friendly atmosphere. Food is great and is served quickly, it was packed every day even outside of school holiday season. We loved the pasta and the dessert menu was also very good.

Our favourite breakfast destination. We are here a couple of times a month and enjoy the atmosphere, efficient personalised service and great coffee. Plenty of menu choices and a nice relaxed feel to the place. Definitely recommend but book as it is usually very popular on weekends.

Being a Cairns local, this is our regular Sunday breakfast spot. The place is always buzzing on a beautiful day, as you are twenty metres away from the glorious Palm Cove overlooking the white sand, palm trees and ocean! I would definitely recommend making a booking on a busy day. The coffee is consistently great. The food is beautiful -... More

Had a delicious lunch on the the front deck looking across at the beach. Good value restaurant with a modern Aus-Med style menu. Interior is nicely designed in a funky, modern tropical. A winner on quality, cost, location and friendly staff. Keep it up.

Her lovely brekkie was made up of scrambled eggs, toast, bacon and a lovely fruit salad. All this for $9. This place has in... More

A nice decor and a perfect location opposite the ocean add to the charm of this restaurant. The food is nicely different and has a lovely Mediterranean flavour yet remains reasonably priced. Every time I passed there were plenty of people in the restaurant which speaks for itself.
