Well if only this place could get its act together. Firstly it is only open 5 days of the week closes over Christmas for a month and has at least two-four weeks off during the year.

Have now visited this place on three different occasions and they are never open. Not worth the trek across town.

The coffee, the pastries, the Brioche... a must do for a cyclist stop after a tough ride. The plain brioche and the GF cheesecake are so so yummy.

Yep, the food is great (I'm a fan of the rye loaf they bake on the premise), the coffee is great, the staff are friendly, but the queues can be tiresome. Literally out the door. It's order at counter, food delivered to table number. So consider having a designated queue stander while the rest of the group grab a table.... More

Wow, how luck am I that a friend told me about this awesome bakery. Located in the small town "Freshwater", Cairns. If you love traditional crusty, hard, chewy French bread well this is the real deal. Also on offer. Delicious French pastries and good quality Genovese coffee. The shop is beside the IGA supermarket; seating inside and out; daily papers;... More

You have to get in early or be prepared to wait &/or miss out. It is worth the wait however and the coffee is great also. We'll be back for sure.

A friend suggested this cafe for us to meet for a late breakfast. The French pastries were delicious and the coffee was good as well. Even though it was already 11:00 it was very busy and most of the tables were occupied. They also make European style bread, so I will definitely visit again next time when I'm in Cairns.
