For coffee and cake this place is amazing. Really enjoyed the ambiance and surroundings - reminded me of a Hunter Valley Vineyard in NSW. Mostly a good experience but a few things detracted from our visit: - Wait backpacking staff were all grumpy, unemphatic and seemed disconnected - Sad to see that more than half the menu comes from the...

We arrived just after a factory tour had left and would have had to wait 1.5 hours for the next. We watched a good video, had a decent cuppa and reasonable food, though felt there was little to appeal On the day, staff seemed fairly distracted, so we left before were able to do the tour.

A lovely licensed cafe with outdoor undercover deck. Undercover car parking. Greeted by friendly dogs for a pat at the entry. Wear closed in shoes if you would like a Segway tour. About a half hour drive out of Kuranda.

Today we drove 60kms for a cold coffee and video about the trials of developing a coffee plantation in Australia. And paid $8 each for the privilege. As retired farmers we were really hoping to see the trees and the process of growing and processing the coffee. When we arrived we were told they were busy roasting and probably wouldn't... More

Stopped by to shop for some local coffee. They offered fresh brewed coffee and scones and some other foodstuffs. Well worth the visiting for their coffees and foods. We did not take the tour but they do offer a tour of the plantation and plant.

I thought coffee was an addiction for the drinkers only but after a tour of the Jaques plantation it's clear that the addiction starts with the growers and their perseverance to grow a crop after several devastating setbacks. The tour of the facilities at Jaques is very informative and only 30 minutes or so. Very friendly staff, very nice coffee... More

We watched a video on the history of Jaques coffee and then did a bus tour of the plantation, before coming back to the cafe and sampling their 2 liqueurs and enjoying s free coffee included in...
