Oh the Fat Frog just makes me want to sing their praises! From the beginning, amazing friendly staff, busy happy atmosphere, I love the coffee... just right, beautifully poached eggs... soft as they should be... dog friendly and an amazing view. Ladies and gentlemen you have this just right, keep up the good work.

We are visitors, for us it was about location. The view was glorious. As we only had morning tea, our coffee and chai was excellent. Loved the eclectic atmosphere.

Fat Frog has amazing meals. They are a little different. They are presented creatively. I always visit this café when traveling to Whitsunday region.

We ALWAYS drop into Fat Frog for Brekkie whenever we are in Airlie Beach. The food is very tasty & fresh and the Thickshakes are sensational 😃: )

Lovely place. Lovely view. The chicken burger was a marinated breast. The chips were great too. Sounds like I'm easily pleased but I'm not! Would love to return next time we're in Airlie.

Very cute little cafe. Served great flat white coffee. The decor is very beachy. Kids had a drink and snack and enjoyed sitting outside and enjoyed the view of the water.
