“A nice relaxing place for a good cup of coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This is a nice, shady, little coffeshop where it just feels good to sit down, relax, not feel rushed, and enjoy a good cup of coffee. The shop doubles as a new and used bookstore which adds to it's comfort factor.

Great coffee & book shop! Book shops few & far between these days. This is a good one. Enjoyed it every day after our breakfast.

“Best coffee in Port Douglas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Been in Port Douglas for one day, and already established that this is the place for coffee!!! Relaxing atmosphere, with a handy bookshop inside that sells most popular titles. Will definitely be visiting here every day for my morning caffeine fix. One of the highlights of Port Douglas thus far.

“Hit the spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

On the day that my partner and i visited, we found it quite pleasant indeed. The coffee was fresh roasted, of clean and crisp flavour with no bitter notes. All the way rounding off to a citrus finish. When you drink coffee that doesn't need sugar added to it, has been obtained within the week of its roasting date and served fresh and extracted well, that's all there is to it!

The service was pretty good also. Polite staff, some fairly good light snacks on offer which of the ones we tried had some excellent flavour to them. All in all, worthwhile to stop, relax, have a breather and talk some BS with whoever you're with!

Spot on! Keep up the good work.
