“Great for a quick bite and cuppa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Stopped here for a cuppa and a quick bite to eat to kill the hung pains, service was great and food and beverages were above standard, worth a call in whilst on the esplanades in cairns.

“Don't go”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

We had a lunch there, it was the worst meal we had in Cairns; the staff was not friendly at all. I asked twice the olive oil and the vinegar. I went the 3d time to the cashier for asking! They did not even ask if we needed a glass of water, poor service!
My chef salad with the feta cheese was not with a real feta cheese, the taste was disgusting, $15 for this, really!!??? My friend's meal was overcooked, dry food, so nice!

“Worst coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

We had breakfast here once and it was the worst coffee I had in the 23 days we spent in north Queensland and I was having at least 1 coffee a day. I ordered a flat white and it was bitter and had way too much froth for a flat white. The scrambled eggs I had were tasteless and overcooked which made them dry and crumbly rather than creamy. So we didn't make the mistake of going back to Coast Roast again.

“Great breakfast-Great view !”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
