I absolutely love the atmosphere and the food here! I enjoyed this restaurant while on vacation in Cairns and it was the best breakfast I had while there. I definitely recommend this place and it has a great vibe and views as well. It is centrally located in the main stretch of Cairns which makes it a quick stop for... More

On the day of the Cairns Ironman, I desperately needed some coffee after a sleepless night and a day of supporting ahead of me. Luckily I found Dolce & Caffe. Despite them being super busy, it didn't take too long for my coffee to arrive (take away) and the staff were incredibly friendly. This became our go to coffee stop... More

Stopped off for a coffee on a busy Saturday morning. Staff were friendly and service was very good. We did have to wait a little while for our coffee to come but we weren't in a hurry, so it didn't matter to us. The coffee was excellent - it was the best coffee we had whilst we were in Cairns....

A large American sized coffee here is $5.50 AUD. Far better than quality than Starbucks l. Also reasonable priced breakfast at my hotel breakfast is $29 AUD. Since this... More

If you don't want to pay fortune for a hotel breakfast in the Marina precinct in Cairns try this great little place. It's great value, has really good food, an excellent buzz and vibe and really friendly staff. And the coffee is great! It's a fuss free and great value breakfast cafe,

Good place for early coffee and well presented breakfast options. For gourmand coffee drinkers - their blend is slightly bitter on first taste when taken black but like a good Shiraz wine, the 2nd and subsequent sips are excellent. Good basic egg on toast.
