Description: NOA is the brainchild of restauranteurs father and son team Buddy and Sam Byrd. With strong backgrounds in managing restaurants and hotels around the globe, Buddy and Sam returned home to Cairns four years ago to open their first venture Ozmosis cafe Kitchen in Edge Hill. Off the back of a supportive and loyal community, NOA was born in the Summer of 2014 and has quickly established itself as the premier dining destination in Cairns for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. 'It was our desire to create a neighbourhood meeting house for locals to enjoy casual yet refined dining'. says Buddy. NOA is set in the heart of Edge Hill Village, five minutes walk from The Cairns Botanical Gardens and The Tanks Arts theatre.

NOA is a tapas/share plate restaurant, delicious food, friendly efficient staff, nice vibe. Doesn't matter whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner there is always plenty of yummy choices.

Love this place! The food is divine! They use lots of local produce :) And the cocktails are to die for. Best banana bread I've ever had too!

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Can't fault the food here at Noa. Everything we tried was fresh and delicious. The food is perfect to share, or keep for yourself! The drinks were also great - we were big fans of the lychee cocktail. Whoever runs their play list has great taste in music (and clearly is a John Mayer fan!). I would highly recommend a trip to this restaurant if in Cairns.

Have been here numerous occasions for breakfast and find the menu innovative and exciting...waiters are professional and attentive, atmosphere is lovely, even though they can seat lots it still feels intimate and personal...breakfast boards are a must have...love it and will try lunch and dinner one day...

“Lunch in style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Very stylish place to have lunch. Plenty of choices for people who are fussy about quality food - I had a power salad bowl, which was full of goodies. The service was top.
