Delicious Eggs Benny & Flat White for breakfast at this cracking gem of a roadside beachfront cafe. If you’re driving the highway from Cairns to Port Douglas be sure to stop and take in the view. Excellent customer service. Only downside: no WiFi.

Lovely brunch, tasty food and a great menu selection my only petty complaint is the lack of aircon but that can be overlooked considering the beauty of the view and the openness of the venue! Staff were pleasant overall a great experienceMore

Absolutely gorgeous view and nice atmosphere but the service is poor, the coffee is not the best. The young (probably Indian) guy in the cashier is not friendly and doesn't seem to be care of the customers. Haven't tried the food.More

Ellis beach is our favourite beach around Cairns, and having great food across the road maks it even better. The bar and grill is a mostly outdoor, casual, chill atmosphere with live music on Sundays. One of my preferred places for a great breakfast and...More
