Great wholesome food, juices with perfection and flavour, great coffee and value for money, and friendly service to go with. Located in the heart of the city, walking distance to all major hotels and the esplanade.

We discovered this gem a few years ago and it is our go to coffee place when visiting Cairns. When the bus terminals were shifted a couple of years ago more comfortable seating became available outside as the footpaths were widened. Situated in the historic Bolands centre built in 1912, the cafe has an eclectic decor with comfy sofas inside.... More

If you want a good breakfast, this is the place. Morning or afternoon tea, again the place to go. The Chia was so good and the lemon tart amazing. Lunch the next day was the rehab salad. Grilled beetroot, Halumi, pine nuts and lots more. The salad was healthy, tastie and very filling. As for the service, the best you... More
