“Beautiful fresh food, good prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

I went here for breakfast with my Mum. You order at the counter and the service was prompt. We both ordered Eggs Benedict on Sourdough, the Hollandaise was homemade and delicious, the eggs were poached perfectly. The prices were reasonable, $ 15.90 including smoked salmon. The coffee was unremarkable but certainly drinkable. I would go back there. The menu looked great!

“Gourmet Food in cosy eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

This little restaurant/cafe offers delicious gourmet food at very reasonable prices. It is situated in the northern Cairns suburb of Stratford and is on the way to the beautiful beaches north of Cairns. The service was exceptional. A definite place to eat in the future.

“What a Hoot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

This was such a surprise to find in a rather off-the-beaten-path location. The menu is sophisticated but not stuffy; the range of choices is broad; the prices were reasonable; and the food was excellent! Best of all, the service was terrific. I wish I knew the owner's name so I could give specific credit, but she is one outstanding lady! We came in near closing two days in a row because we were out exploring and she prepared two incredible sandwiches (that's what we wanted) that rivaled the finest restaurants in which we have eaten. Though we chose not to eat dessert, there was a case full of the most delectable, mouthwatering cheesecakes, tortes, and other baked goods that you could hope to find. All the while, she chatted amiably with us as if we were her best customers instead of the people who were preventing her from having some time at home. Most charming of all, we Americans moaned that we were disappointed that we had never heard a kookaburra laugh, so she let out with a fantastic imitation that rocked the house! (She confessed to having belonged to a group of girls who called themselves the Kookaburra Girls!) That night, we heard the REAL thing and it was spot on. If you stop there, and you should!, ask for the Kookaburra Girl to do her thing---and eat a dessert for us!

“The Best secret in Strattford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

this has got to be the best deli & diner in Cairns. You have to try their BLT's which has their home made holindase sauce, which is to die for!!!
