“The worst service in the whole of Australia!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

What a HUGE mistake... took 10 minutes to serve us, another 20 minutes to bring the water (only because I asked) when my salad sandwich arrived 50 minutes later it was actually a smoked salmon sandwich... when I advised them that it was wrong at the counter the staff seemed to think it was no big deal, we just left, the staff could not care less and have no idea and it was dirty

“Very tasty but overpriced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

We went for breakfast. .....just 2 of us and cost >$50. It was delicious food though and the best coffee that I had in Palm Cove.

Pick the time to go because it can get very busy. We noticed it got very busy at 10 am so we made sure we went before then.

“Great breakfast spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We ate here almost every morning of our 7 days in palm cove. The food is excellent, fresh, tasty and healthy. The service was a little slow however the boss (pictured in the news clipping at the counter) has a great personality and you won't mind the wait. We recommended this place to our wedding guests and most had babies. They were accommodating and friendly.

“Reason alone to go to Palm Cove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

No matter how busy you may find this cafe the food and atmosphere is worth the wait. The vibe of the staff is terrific and the Tree Hugger Breakfast is a must try. Such a warm and welcoming place to relax and have breakfast, not to be missed, and kept us coming back every day during our trip.
