“Great breakfast-Great view !”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The 'coffee shop' is more like a breakfast/lunch place. It is situated on Cairns esplanade which is basically the seafront road. You have a lovely view directly towards the open air Cairns lagoon pool. There are few cars driving down the seafront road so traffic noise isn't an issue. Hence a nice place to sit in the shade and chill. Most importantly the breakfasts are superb! Well cooked and relatively healthy as they are not swimming in fat. From what I could see the other eats looked good too. Highly recommend this to lovers of the English (or should I say Australian!) breakfast. One of the few places around the world where you get proper meaty bacon rather than the streaky stuff they serve in most other countries. Enjoy!

“Best Cappucino in Cairns!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Just loved being able to wake up in the morning at Mantra Esplanade and walk straight out the door to Coast Roast Cafe! Coffee was consistently good and the service always friendly and welcoming!

“Cairns central Coast roast.....”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Happened on this place by chance and as we loved the latte at the one one the
Esplanade thought we should give this a try. Pleasant staff and good selection of goodies. The group ahead of me in the queue stepped aside as they were having trouble deciding.
We settled on banana bread, toasted and it was delicious. The latte was good but not quite up to the standard of the Esplanade cafe.

“on the esplanade, attractive place for reasonably priced simple meal”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Strolling down the esplanade with children in the late evening after dark we were looking simply for a spot to get a quick bite. Food is good, reasonably priced: burgers, fish n chips, iced fruit drink very good. Nice seating (which is covered, in case it is raining) and nice place to stop.

“Good coffee......”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

I am somewhat choosy when it comes to coffee and find Australian brewed coffee often lacking in 'bite'. This place, however delivered up a very tasty glass of skinny latte on my first visit so I had to return. Tried the iced version, which was also good. It has become my regular haunt during my ten day stay in Cairns. An good selection of food and cakes on the menu, topped with friendly and efficient service.
