A vibrant cafe located at St Crispins Station, Port Douglas. Chill with us lakeside, while taking in a panoramic view over Hole 12 and out to the majestic mountain ranges.

We are open for morning coffee fixes kicking off bright and early, with breakfast, lunch and snacks available throughout the day. Ice creams will delight kids of all ages while the historic Bally Hooley train arrives and departs in all her steamy glory! + Open 7 days + Coffee fixes from 6.30 am + Breakfast from 7.30 am + Lunch & Snacks + Functions & Events + Bally Hooley Steam Train

We have been to Choos Choos twice now and I have to say that this place serves the best breakfasts I have ever had. I am a tough critic - great cook, foodie and very well travelled - I do not give this recommendation lightly!...More

Really like Choo Choos at marina but so disappointed with this cafe. Terrific spot for a cafe but the woman serving was really, really bad. No wonder the place was empty. Food Ok but not worth a 2nd visit.More
