I popped into this Scandinavian cafe on a hot day, and their iced tea revived me! Friendly staff made me feel right at home. Located right across the street fro the cinema.

Unpretentious delicious food choices, if basic. Healthy and wholesome options. If you’ve got a hankering for strong filtered coffee, this is your best bet in Cairns. Also they offer free refills for sit-in customers. Great customer service too!

The first thing that struck me about this place was it was obvious that there was a great employee culture. The staff were chirpy and happy to make conversation with the customers just as readily as they would to each other without shirking their work....More
