Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Me and my sister went there for high tea with endless tea or coffee. It was fantastic, could not eat all the meal. Have to book if you want high tea. I really recommend everyone to go there they have great service and food.

Excellent and friendly service! Terrific portion sizes and even allowed the pet dog to sit outside. The staff are all professional and friendly. There is no snobbery at this family friendly cafe!! Beautiful and tasty food!!

A few good vegan options (vegan breakfast platter has a nice selection of veggies as well as the staple hashbrowns, avo and mushrooms). Big portions and reasonable prices for the area. Service was excellent while still relaxed and surprisingly quick.

We called into Candy for the first time for a late breakfast on Thursday 03/11/22 & immediately made very welcome from Staff. Excellent meal choices from the menu planner [ chosen meals on the receipt]. We were served within 10-15 min's & excellent food presentation...& large portions. Overall a great atmosphere in a spacious environment with plenty of dining space & dine outside if preferred. Parking opposite Candy. Menu prices very reasonable & we will defiantly return living locally.More

Not a bad little restaurant. Good food. Very sweet, as the name would indicate. Service was a bit lacking. Don't sit outside. The pigeons will get you.

The food was amazing the little sandwiches through to the delicious cakes then...the best chai latte we have had for a long time! To top it off the price is very reasonable.

Thanks to Chantelle and her team I had a wonderful Mother’s Day brekkie with my family. Dining out as a coeliac with a dairy intolerance can be quite difficult and often very stressful. I was reassured by the staff I could be safely catered for...the moment we arrived, taking my order and they even reconfirmed the chef had been alerted when my meal was placed. My meal was absolutely delicious and my family are very happy I got to enjoy my Mother’s Day brekkie without stress. A huge thank you to you Candy Team.More

We came here after I had heard great reviews and were very impressed. Breakfast sizes were huge! My friend had the beans and I had the biggest smashed avo I’d eaten in Cairns AND eggs came with not an extra!!! Great prices and the manager...(I think) is absolutely so friendly and welcoming! This will be our new regular I think!More

Every time we come here for lunch we are impressed. We are working our way through the menu and each new meal we try is delicious. Today I had the Mediterranean salad and I just loved it. Also the coffee and service are consistently amazing.
