Have dined in for lunch/breakie and dinner multiple times, the food is always delicious and drinks right up there too! The staff are always freindly! Food is usually out withing 10-20 minutes at the most depending on how busy.

Dropped into this place for coffee and decided to have a meal as well. The chips were literally the best - crunchy outside, soft and fluffy inside. I'd go back just to have the chips again.

Don't waste your time going anywhere else in Cairns. This joint puts in a mighty effort in all areas. Decor, ambience and food. Everything has been meticulously planned here. A rarity for Cairns. Cafes up here think they can serve up second rate food, coffee...More

If you are looking for good coffee, Candies is the place to go. Big meals, funky atmosphere and good service.
