We had dinner twice here during our holiday in Cairns. Staff were lovely and service was prompt. The food was cooked to perfection and there were lots of gluten free options available on the menu. Definitely worth a visit.

Started with the Verde fresh juice.....apple, spinach, parsley and a fourth ingredient I forget. The Americana sandwich with egg, bacon, home made meat patty, avocado and pickled chilli hit the spot and the latte chaser was perfect.....so good in fact I got another one to go.

Stopped by for a cold drink on a boiling Sunday having visited the Cairns Art Gallery next door (small but exquisite - do visit - only $5). Lovely corner street terrace, cooling breeze. Very prompt, friendly service. Had cold beer and fresh squeezed juice combo, both excellent. Then decided to share a plate of crispy fried octopus. Came with watermelon,... More

It shouldn't be too hard to do eggs, bacon and avocado when you are open for breakfast, and paying additional $5 for bacon and avocado sides each raised my expectations. CRASH, two small pieces of overcooked greasy bacon and smashed avo that had more sour vinegar than quality Avocado in it. The meal portion was small in proportion to the... More

Unfortunately, we found this cafe on our last morning in Cairns, otherwise we would have been regulars. Can't speak for lunch or dinner but the breakfast was outstanding and the cafe itself was very attractive. One waiter was a little indifferent but the other waitress more than made up for him with her professionalism and friendliness.

I waited quite sometime in front of the desk with the waiter completely ignoring me...finally he looked up and said for me to sit down when I asked him for a menu...so I sat down and the waiter seated other people and gave them menus before me even though I had come in first...I am not a wealthy person and...

I have been wanting to go to this cafe for awhile and was really looking forward to having lunch here with a friend. I had a calamari salad with pumpkin and popcorn ... sounds yum, don't you think. Well, it was somewhat disappointing. The popcorn was stale and the dish was to sweet as there was nothing to tone down... More

Normally a great place to dine, especially for breakfast. Had a late lunch there & service was OK, but not up to usual standard. Other staff sitting around on meal breaks did not add to ambience. Southern chicken 'Sandwich' over cooked & average presentation. Price did not represent good value. Maybe an off moment, as usually very good .

We started our morning off with breakfast at this cafe. The coffee was hot and strong so our hearts were good and beating for the day! We ordered the eggs any style (poached) and we're pleased with the outcome! Sometimes you get them hard as rocks, but these were perfect! The side of bacon we shared was cooked perfect and... More
