we had breakfast here on our first day in port douglas and the service was excellent as was the food. We enjoyed the coffee and the fact that you could just sit and relax without getting hassled.

A beautiful spot on the pier overlooking the marina. What better place for breakfast? Great food (the pancakes are to die for) and super friendly staff. If you love your coffee ask for an extra shot.
