We recently visited Palm Cove whilst on holiday in Port Douglas. We walked the entire length of Palm Cove eateries and decided on Chill Café. I had the pulled lamb burger, my husband had the lamb shank and our son had the breakfast and all means were amazing. Want to go to paradise?.....make this a must on your trip

Ate here twice whilst on holidays. Service is excellent. Food is of good quality and the serves are very generous. Well worth eating here. Maybe a bit pricey for some people but you get what you pay for. Great location with beautiful view . Only ate breakfast here, but if I ever come back will definitely try it for lunch... More

When we first arrived we noticed this cafe was always 80% full compared to others being 20-30%. The view was great, the lunch was good and the staff friendly.

On our 1st day in Palm Cove we stopped at the Chill Cafe. It was happy hour - 3-5pm! Not just drinks - food as well e.g. $2 oysters. 👍👍This definitely made us happy!! Great bar and service staff made us feel very welcome. We went back for dinner a few nights later and had a beautiful meal. I reckon... More

Great food! Awesome location and views. Compliments to the chef for the fish tacos and Philly cheese steak wrap. Love the mexi/American menu with a healthy twist. Not enough of that here in Aus! Great spot!

We were warmly welcomed by staff, who were accommodating for the entire time we were at the restaurant. Very good with the children (3 year old). Food was good and deserts were great.

Just loved the atmosphere of this fantastic cafe in Palm Cove - straight across the road from the beach. The staff were cheerful and friendly, which added to the relaxed and happy vibe. We enjoyed thoroughly enjoyed our lunch there. Salt and pepper calamari was tender and the fish tacos were scrumptious! Chips were really good too. Definitely a place... More

Enjoyed breakfasts at Chili Cafe and it receives a two thumbs up --consistently tasty food and laid back atmosphere right on the beachfront strip. Their eggs benedict offerings were probably the best I've had while touring around Australia. Hard to find fault with this place.
