After spending the morning at the Esplanade and lagoon with the kids we were well due for lunch and a coffee (for me). We waited about two minutes for a table as it was full and were seated, given water and menus. The kids opted for fish and chips whilst I chose a salad. The staff were friendly and as we were the closest table to the coffee machine the Barista was making jokes and chatting with the kids. Being a busy lunch spot the food came out almost immediately after my wonderful coffee was delivered. The portions sizes were large especially the childrens size F & C. The meal was enjoyed by all and I arranged another coffee to take away. Look forward to visiting again next time we are in Cairns.

This is one of my favourite breakfast cafes in Cairns. The coffee is excellent, the food is divine. Their eggs benedict with lime hollandaise is great, as well as the pork belly sliders for a quick snack.

Food is high quality and not just going for volume on the plate like the barns on the Esplanade, or huge margins like the places on the wharf. Staff are great and make a good G&T. Wines by the glass have some interest with mark ups like a capital city. They do a good black coffee. I was in Cairns 3 days and went twice to this place.

Had lunch here and was the best salads we have ever eaten along with the best lemon lime and bitters ever!

Couldn't recommend this place more. Much better than many of the restaurants on the esplanade.

We have been to this cafe a few times and definitely rate it as one of the best in Cairns, without doubt one of our favourites.

It's situated next the to the art gallery and has a lovely covered outdoor settings. There are plenty of tables and seatings but it never feels crowed even when it's packed. Due to the outdoor setting, it's always well ventilated either by natural breeze and/ or the fans.

Service has always been prompt, efficient and friendly.

Food selection is fantastic, as are the quality and portion. We highly recommend the calamari salad (amongst others) which came with a generous portion of calamari and whatever dressing they used, it was tasty and refreshing.

Oh, last but not least, the coffee (both flat white and latte) were good, not the strongest but definitely strong enough and not burnt, and milk with good quality foam.

We highly recommend this cafe if you haven't tried it.
