“Great for a lunch salad, roll or sweeties”
Reviewed 10 June 2011

I think that The Swiss Cake and Coffee Shop is one of the best places in Cairns for lunch. The salad bowls are fantastic and I would always recommend a coffee and cake.

They also do cakes for occassions and I love to pick something up if I am going to a friends place or take some home or to the Office for afternoon tea.

“Fresh fresh fresh!”
Reviewed 22 April 2011

The food here is so fresh. The salads are a great size and the menu choices for sandwich fillings is really good. They have a good variety of beautiful cakes and pastries.
I do think the prices are a little expensive for a sandwich though.

“Definitely worth a visit.....the staff are great as is the food :-)”
Reviewed 7 October 2010

Unusual for Cairns, each time I've visited this cafe I've been greeted with a welcoming and friendly smile and great service. They obviously care about their customers and their standards (I'd love to be able to say that's the norm in Cairns - sadly it's not). The food is great, the place is clean and the atmosphere is good. Worth checking out.
