Stopped here on our way to Cape Tribulation for a snack. We ordered a bowl of wedges with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce and it was the biggest bowl I've ever seen and all for $14. So tasty and a beautiful beach frontage spot....More

Nicest view for lunch, right on he beach. We had burgers, the vegetarian one was delicious. Staff are very friendly and service was quick. We went back for a coffee the next day and the coffee was great too

Since there isn't much in terms of eating out in the daintree region, this place did ok for a cafe. Service was friendly and our order was prompt.

Strong coffee and fairly nice place to sit at the beach and chill. Only a 3 rating as staff were not friendly, it felt like you were putting them out just by being there, cake was a few days old and stale.
