“Great coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Everything from Service to presentation. Not being rushed to make a quick decision and yes, one can relax even though it is busy all around you.

“Greatest, friendliest, best valued coffee and breakfast shop in cairns!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

You need to try the waffles with ice cream and maple syrup here! They were the greatest waffles I've ever had in my entire life and great price too! The staff is friendly and efficient and the environment right near the lagoon is the best possible location! 5 stars for sure!

“The worst meal I've had in twelve weeks of travel. Don't go here.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

We stopped for a quick breakfast at this exceedingly well located cafe. It sits at the corner of a busy intersection and has a view of the city's lovely wading pool and the sea, beyond. The coffee was merely ok. The meals were awful. My bagel with cream cheese and salmon was a fluffy bun with hastily assembled cream cheese and salmon. The tomato was making the bun soggy, the cream cheese was warm and applied in clumps, the salmon was much saltier than usual, and had dry edges and bits of skin. I just picked away the salmon and will have lunch very soon.


The croissant sandwich that my dining partner had was equally bad and hastily assembled, and his baked beans were microwaved from a can. I'm not too picky, skillet cooking baked beans makes them totally acceptable diner/café fare.

All of this with one coffee and one juice for $40 AU.

If you are just looking for a good place and this review is enough to scare you off, go up a few streets and go to Lilypad instead. For the same price, you'll get twice more food, way better prepared, and exceedingly tasty.
