Drove through Babinda on a Sunday morning in the way to the boulders. This was the only place that was open but it was a really good stop for brekky and coffee. Only small but a great setup. Friendly staff, quick service and definitely worth...stopping at.More

Had the fish burger, calamari salad and banana milkshake. Food was very fresh, tasty, good sized and inexpensive. Service was quick too. Highly recommend this place.

Latte was great and gluten free orange and poppy seed muffins were moist and delicious! Looking forward to trying the Pina Colada Sorbet as well! Thank you to the friendly staff at Kool Spot Cafe!

Stopped into Babinda on one of my regular trips to Cairns and found this cool looking cafe at the end of the main street on the way to the Boulders and decided to give it a try. The best little cafe I've come across in...a long time, and I've got a few favourites scattered around Australia. Coffee and drinks are great, but the food is outstanding. Had fish, chips and salad, the salad being probably the best I've ever had in a country cafe. Staff are very friendly, and a fantastic peaceful setting. Will be spending a lot more time here!More

I give this place a 11/10 because the food is good and the thick shakes are bomb. But when he ask for my name he got it completely wrong. But I love this place and come every 2nd week. 🥸

Given the previous reviews and a recommendation from a friend, we decided to check it out for breakfast. Staff were great and the atmosphere was nice - the food almost was but everything was just slightly off. Long black was delicious but tiny. Toasties were...delicious but tiny. Scrambled egg include tomatoes but was microwaved (?!) and toast was soggy. Mango coconut cake was lovely, but the mango slices clearly came from a tin. Lemon meringue pie was tasty but old and spongey.More
