Great spot, nice strong coffee, my meal was nice, others at my table were mixed reviews. Would give it an extra half star but not sure how to do that.

Arriving back in Airlie beach after a Hamilton Island weekend we found the Fat Frog. Fish Tacos and a thai salad with fish were perfect. Cooked just right, very tasty and no skimping on any of the ingredients. (Heaps of peanuts on the Thai salad)....More

Funky and friendly, unique and quirky ... the Fat Frog has gained an enviable reputation for amazing coffee (thanks to Campos) and lovingly housemade food while our stunning location at Cannonvale Beach means you'll always find a gorgeous gentle sea breeze that makes for the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the incredible views and laid-back atmosphere.
