“Funky, friendly and fun decor”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Had breakfast here with friends. The menu and decormwere original. I had the Bubble and Squeak which reminded me of my Grandma's - it was a memorable breakfast. All meals were delicious. People said their coffees were great and ordered seconds. My hot chocolate was lukewarm but, when I commented, the next one was hot. Service was attentive and they aimed to please. We will be back.

“Quirky innovative menu, delicious breakfast, good value”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is a fun cafe with interesting decor and a creative menu, all the old breakfast favourites are there but with a twist and a few unexpected additions, like shredded duck with zucchini fritters (yum). The meals were generous sized and delicious. I thought the service was good and the meals came quickly. Coffee was fine. A good place to go for breakfast in Cairns.

“Great Food”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I am a vegetarian and liking the fact that Candys has few more veggie options than most of the restaurants in Cairns. The Food is delicious and you are welcome to ask for special requests. Staff seems friendly and polite.

“Yummy food, shocking service”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Been there 3 times now for breakfast. Clearly the food is good, but the service ruins your experience. Takes 10 mins to get anyones attention to be seated, once seated another 10 before we get menus, another 10 before drinks ordered. In total, an hour before we got our food. A really long time!!

If their service was better, it would have got 5 stars.
