A beautiful place to explore ... amazing people and great services. Highly recommended if your out and about in Cairns.

This is a very good place to go for a light lunch with many good vegetarian options. The host also offers a guided nature walk in the nearby bush and while we were there a juvenile cassowary walked slowly through the property.

Whilst in the Daintree we decided to stop for a quick coffee and a bite to eat. This cafe was a great stop - the owner was a truly lovely guy who couldn’t do enough for us. The place was very peaceful and not over...run with the usual bus loads of tourists and backpackers. He spent a lot of time chatting to us about his resident cassowary (which visits the cafe on a daily basis) and giving us lots of pointers and information about the Daintree in general. The toasties were lovely as were the scones, cream and jam - and all reasonably priced. Definitely worth a stop. He was even kind enough to give me a ‘sapote’ fruit to try - something which apparently tastes of chocolate pudding.More

Delicious coffee and cheesecake with great service and in depth knowledge if the area. An invitation to a jungle walk, we couldn't unfortunately - time constraints! Great stop.

Stopped in here today for a coffee (very nice) and were delighted by the friendliness of the owner. The boardwalk is very interesting and we took the tour provided by Steve Wilson who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Well worth the time.

Recently reopened cafe with delicious food passionately made on the premises, I had the vegan banana biscuits which were amazing. Garry had a gourmet chicken pie with quinoa salad which he said was delicious. They have a boardwalk through the rainforest for cassowary viewing if...you are lucky enough to see one.More

Lunch was great and the snakes and birds running free in the garden were entertaining. Food was a little overpriced but this should not deter you.

We stopped here to have an adult beverage. The didn't have any, but my daughter enjoyed a great smoothie and the service was great. We chatted with the proprietor and he was nice enough to give us some information and tips for our Daintree day...trip. He also talked up the fan palms so much that we just had to check out the boardwalk to see for ourselves. This walk was a happy surprise. While we didn't see a cassowary, we did enjoy checking out all the foliage. Overall, this was a pleasant and informative stop.More

We stopped in for lunch and bumped into people telling the owners they had just seen a cassowary on the boardwalk trail that they own and starts by the restaurant (for which they charge $3). We ran off and saw no cassowaries, came back and...had a very nice lunch and got some great tips for seeing a cassowary (walk quietly, stop when you hear movement and wait a minute or two till it resumes, then look around) and then went down the boardwalk again and a cassowary crossed about 3-4 meters from us. The owners also showed us a sunbird nesting out back. Thank you! We got much more than just a nice meal.More

My sons and I stopped in here for lunch and a rainforest walk in October 2016. The hosts were so lovely, the food great, and the rainforest walk just stunning! We also bought some cold dishes at lunch time that we took back to our...accommodation and heated up for dinner, having spent many dinners out already and just wanting a quiet night in. I hope to see this place go far; owner Lee seems to have great aspirations and passion for the place, and he certainly deserves success.More
