I then went up later and changed my bread to rye and when they brought out normal bread by accident they were really helpful and fixed it up quickly. The food tasted amazing and they had a lot of options to choose from that were... More

Fresh fruit, and lovely fresh yoghurt. Coffee always pretty quick and tasty. I have poached eggs on ciabatta with spinach and mushroom - enough for two people

Quick and unpretentious cafe just off the esplanade. Great fruit salad and yoghurt, italian toast and coffee. Frequented by the local lycra wearing cyclists so I know from Melbourne that means great coffee!

We stopped for brekky before heading off for a day of activities. Warm greeting by bubbly friendly staff. When I ordered the barista turned and double checked what we wanted for the coffee part of our order - we both like totally flat flat whites with zero foam. Our eggs Benny and poached eggs came quickly and the eggs were... More

The first thing you need to know about this cafe is that the serving size is enough to keep you full until dinner. The pancakes are to die for. The cafe is located overlooking esplanade, the most happening street in cairns. A good place to start your day.

This has got to be one of the best ever. Extremely hard working Team and they do an exceptional job. The breakfasts are delicious.... More
