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.

Great place for coffee and food. Nice breakfast. Loved the quiche. They have all basic coffees and beverages as well as some of their own creations. The location is nice, not too far from the airport, with shops and things around it. Are there 3...mornings in a row, very convenient.More

Fantastic cafe. There a couple of these in Cairns but I preferred the one on Spence Street. Could sit indoors with the aircon, or you can also sit outside. Great coffee, excellent staff and service. Loved the brekky wraps. It kind of become my go...to during my recent Cairns stay.More

Food was ok. Got the classic breakfast and they served sautéed spinach on the bread that went all soggy. Service was slow and terrible. Inexperienced staff that don’t care.More

Thank you for the review, it is very insightful. I have a slight suspicion you may have gone to another Bang and Grind on the 'Esplanade' instead of on 'Spence street' as we don't have an item called the Classic Breakfast where as they do....More

This was a lovely place for breakfast - fast efficient service from friendly staff and possibly the best granola I have ever eaten! It was crunchy and beautifully toasted without being too sweet and was served with a side of thick, natural yogurt instead of...the increasingly popular runny, sweetened varieties. Loved the fact that I had a choice between two coffee blends. I chose the strong blend and it was perfect.More

Smiles, buzzing atmosphere and menu with all your favourites. What's not to like? Easy to find, street parking but also very walkable. Great location, good for families, couples or a group. Reasonably accessible but for outer tables only. Coffees were hot and enticing, Great job...on the frothy cappuccino art guys! Eggs they way you like them with sides at $6. Still doable on a budget. French toast all your vitamins and amazing colours too for the artist fix ( mine) Definitely recommendedMore

Came for breakfast and had the waffles and partner had the Chorizo Wrap. Chorizo wrap was delicious and so were the waffles! No faults here!!! One recommendation is we wanted to order the banana split but they didn't want to check the museli if it...contained nuts or the Granola. They said it came in the packet but on the menu it said homemade. If they had checked this they would've got another meal ordered from us with our other meals. Overall, very yummy though so 5 stars it is!More

This was a short walk from our hotel, where the breakfast buffet was $38 per person. We ate at this friendly little cafe and paid about $40 for two very good breakfasts. We liked it so much we came back twice. We tried the other...branch which is not far away but I really preferred this smaller location, not least because you can get just a couple of slices of toast if that’s what you fancy. And I do, generally. My wife tried variously pancakes, French toast and granola muesli, with the muesli being particularly worthy of mention. The bacon on the pancakes could probably have done with being a bit crisper, but it’s not a deal-breaker. The orange juice isn’t freshly squeezed but the bottled stuff available is very good, and the coffee is most excellent. If you’re in the area I wouldn't hesitate to have breakfast here. The local Police clearly agree, BTW.More
