Tide has quickly become our favourite local cafe in Townsville! We are always so welcomed and they are so friendly !! Food is big and so delicious!! Good coffee which is a must!! And such good prices, 10/10
I grabbed the last table available at 10:20am which was proptly cleared by a younger male. I ordered Benedict Bacon, an Espresso and Latte served by another friendly male who made sure I was being helped, he could have been an owner or manager.
Benedict...was lovely and came out literally less than 5 minutes even before my coffees.
Coffees arrived 60 seconds later. Espresso was ok but a little bitter or too fine, could also be the type of beans, extraction got messy on edges of cup (photo). Latte was also ok, residual coffee grind at base of glass from not clearing previously extracted coffee or not cleaning the group handle before extraction; this causes a slight change in taste towards the end of the coffee, especially if we stir in a sugar.
5/5 for food, service and speed
3.5/5 for coffee
Nice location even though it's by the street side.More
Despite staff are never welcoming here, I have been here couple of times because I like the food here. However today, I went for brekky and the old lady with short hair in the counter was super rude. I was shocked by her behavior. how...can someone be so rude while working in a hospitality sector? I didnt expect anyone to be nice but didnt expect someone to be rude either. She just ruined my day. Never going back again.More

We are travelling and our second visit in a week. Excellent coffee, as ordered, and our breakfasts were sumptuous. Great friendly service. Lots of locals dropping in for sit down and takeaway coffees - highly recommend.
If you are looking for a relaxed friendly place for breakfast, this is the place. Had the eggs Benny which were to die for and great coffee and prices that won’t break the bank. Plus Friendly staff, def revisit next time I’m in Townsville
