Description: Easy Cafe is the premier breakfast destination in Airlie Beach. Clientele is made up of locals and lucky tourists who happen to find the cafe which is tucked away down an arcade in the very centre of Airlie Beach. Well known for our amazing coffee, hot wraps and daily specials which include home-made pies, curries and wicked pasta dishes. We also sell beer and wine so come and chill out at one of our sea-view tables and enjoy first rate food at reasonable prices.

“Join the mile high club (Not what you're thinking)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

After a night out of glorious alcoholism I wandered down the breezy arcade that was home to Easy Café, searching for a nice breakfast to put some spring back in my step. And boy, did they deliver- I felt very welcomed by the smiling floor staff after they assured me it would be no trouble at all to make something from the breakfast menu (By now it was 2PM) and what followed was the best breakfast I have ever experienced. The 'Mile High To L.A.' was an awesome tower of hash browns, sausage, bacon and eggs, complimented by a brilliant hollandaise sauce and even a couple of fruit kebabs! Not to mention the ocean views and off-street dining.
Highly recommended from a very impressed foodie.

I am so glad that you enjoyed our signature dish, Mile High to LA, so much. It is really good to know that customers appreciate the time and effort that goes into all our meals. It certainly makes our job worthwhile!

“A great cafe in the heart of Airlie Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

I first visited this place in 2006 as a backpacker and was pleased to see it was still here after do many years.

A few metres from the sea, Easy cafe serves great no fuss brunch and decent coffees in a relaxed 'back alley' ambience. Recommended.

“Service brings this Cafe to its knees”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The staff were confusing and shell shocked - service poor and without any smiles. Food was substantial but who would bother next time. Tucked away in an arcade it has glimpses of Airlie Beach but needs to lift its game. I suppose like most holiday destinations they can afford to be bland as they only see their patrons once and then they disappear.

“Great relaxing breakfast spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Tucked away from the Main Street with a view towards the beach, this little cafe made a great breakfast spot. Relaxing vibe with comfy couches to chill on. Very enjoyable and tasty food too.

“Best breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

For the last 2 years we have spent time in Airlie beach and we have decided after trying a few other places as well that the Easy Cafe has the best breakfast in town. The services is quick and efficient and the food is always great.
