Are here a couple of times on our recent trip and wasn't disappointed. Chosen after reading other reviews and it lived up to the hype. Great coffee, great location and very child-friendly. Even provided colouring books and pencils while we ate.

It was lovely to find this open-air cafe situated right outside of my hotel. It has lovely sea views and all tables have coverage from the sun. The fresh juices look amazing and taste as good as they look. We got the Palm Breeze juice and it was very refreshing. For lunch, my hubby got the San Choy bowl (mince... More

We had a great lunch at this cafe. Our kids enjoyed the kids meals and we had their delicious breakfasts. We are used to great food in Melbourne and this place didn't disappoint. Nice outdoor eating area on the Esplanade.

We loved this place while holidaying in Trinity beach, so much so my hubby wanted to go back the next day for the fish tacos. I enjoyed a soy cap, bruschetta and the Mexican salad...and to be honest everything that came out for the other tables looks amaze-balls. Great location and staff are friendly.

Love the buzz at Chill. Coffee consistently good and the staff friendly and efficient. Bar seats facing the beach provide a pleasant outlook and good vantage point for people watching.

We stopped by for a coffee during a day visit to Palm Cove and we were very happy with this little cafe. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the coffee was pretty good too. Love it!

The staff is kind but the service is slow. The food was definitely not good. The fish tacos and the burger were nice, but the BBQ plate to share was terrible. Dry reheated meat. Unfortunately the experience was not good.
