I had never been to this place (to be honest, didn't even know about it) but I am glad my friends suggested it. All 3 of us were 100% beyond satisfied with our meals and juices. I got the poached eggs and avocado on toast. Mark my words, this is not an embellishment: I have lived in Cairns for over... More

Been here a few times and every time has been a pleasant experience. My favourite is the vegetarian breakfast and is always a good sized portion. Coffee is good and sometimes I tend to have a couple. Juices are nice and refreshing. This place is has a chilled and relaxed vibe. Will definitely always try to visit as I know... More

For breakfast we tried the smashed avocado on toast and candy burger. We ordered both meals with gluten free bread. The burger was fairly good but not amazing, the smashed avocado on toast was a real stand out. Lactose free lattes were very good. We'll be back!

Have not been here for 2 years, still didn't disappoint, one of our favorites, great food, great service and value. Bring good company as you can expect a bit of a wait for your food.

Quirky atmosphere, friendly staff and good coffee, appreciated the T2 as well. The food was flavoursome and the portions were ample. I very much enjoyed the vegetarian breakfast. Good value for what we spent.

Our family randomly found this place on the last day of our trip. Ordered 4 meals. Just to let you know we have tried other high ranked restaurants throughout Cairns, but this small little cafe has blown our minds. All four plates were packed with the chef's care and effort. The taste and visuals of the food were beyond words.... More

Lunch was enjoyable and the food was tasty - it was good to have a business discussion while also enjoying a nice lunch in the middle of Cairns.

Being local patrons we were extremely disappointed with the poor service. It started with the waiter dropping the menu on the table in front of me as if I was a bother and then waiting approximately 40 minutes (in a cafe that was battling to be at half capacity) only to walk out before they could prepare a basic order...
