I could not believe how this place has changed.
What used to be a public toilet block turned playground cafe used to be a great place for parents to grab a cheap coffee and bite to eat while watching over their kids.
Now it's turned into an overpriced 'hipster' style wannabe restaurant delivering poor quality food, long waits and terrible attitude/service.
Take yourself a packed lunch/snack and coffee to the playground. Don't give these greedy owners the satisfaction.

Great playground with plenty of activities and water fun. Lovely and shady. Well worth a visit. Bring swimmers and towel.

Muddy's has delicious food, juices and the coffee is great. The time it took to come tested us though after our fifth visit. yep we ate three breakfasts and two dinners there and got lots of great coffee. The staff are good too but just too run off their feet during this busy easter period.

We stayed across the road so Muddy's was our go to place first thing in the morning for breakfast and an easy dinner after a long day touring. The setting looking out across the water in the morning compliments the delicious breakfasts and refreshing freshly made juices. A great start to the day. We managed to try a number of things on the menu and they were all delicious (and filling). We had dinner there a couple of times and the fish and chips were great. Beautiful setting, friendly staff and great food.

Recently spent 7 nights in Cairns and Muddys was our go to for great food, coffees, juice and smoothies. Staff very friendly, service quick and extremely popular. Friday night $10 fish and chips was fabulous value. Make it a go to if you are in Cairns.

So many choices for children, be in water based or climbing equipment. Plenty of space for parents to sit and watch children at play. It is colourful shady playground.

So many young mums with cute kids and babies ... it seems this is the place for play dates, and it is hardly surprising as the playground is extensive with many different water splashers and puddles to play in and climbing frames. The coffee is excellent and the range of breakfast dishes extensive. Obvious effort goes into presentation and both the dishes we had - corn fritters and the vegetable dish with garlic mushrooms - were both very tasty.
