In between flights we decided to stop in for a little breakfast treat. Sista looked after us with a complementary cold water to accompany our lovely breakfast.

We stopped in here for lunch after landing in Cairns. I would rate the food as a four, we had a yummy chicken salad and a salad wrap and the portions were a good size and able to be customised.

Service was a hi light, but the breakfast was very good representing good value. Good coffee and a relaxed setting close to the action. A nice breakfast experience.

Coffees great. Juice - great. Salad - mediocre. Avocado mash - alright. We came here in the morning and had espressos which we liked very much. I had my juice adapted so that it doesn't have banana as I'm intolerant to it. I had apple, mango, ginger and spirulina and it was great! Then we came here for lunch as... More

I used to be a regular at this restaurant because the food is great! However, over the past year each time I have visited I have received poor service and have had my order misplaced or misunderstood several times. Literally the last 5 occasions there has been something wrong - at times I felt like I was at McDonalds rather... More

The eggs Benedict are as expected, nice and runny with crisp Italian bread and flavorful holindaise. Service was prompt and they are open at 6:30am when I walked past while so many others are closed.

We visited this restaurant several times for breakfast and brunch. Friendly service combined with a wide choice of tasty and nutritious delicacies. Well located in the centre of town and always busy, that always tells you something. Smoothies were great and very filling.
