I was pleased to come across this place which offered a wide variety of food and beverages. A great selection of Acai bowls like those famous 'Nalu Bowls' found in Bali. Great selection of Juices & Smoothies for a refreshing and healthy drink in the hot climate of Cairns.

I had been searching for a place that serves calamari that's not overpowered by crumbing (flour) & I decided to try this place. I'm happy I did because their calamari tastes good especially with the chips. I wasn't a fan of the tartar sauce but that didn't affect the meal very much. Good place to have a simple & quick...

The barramundi and chips was amazing!!! I am a huge fish and chips lover and this place was excellent. The breaded barramundi was so delicious that I ordered it twice!

We were hankering for some typical Aussie fish n chips and we weren't disappointed. This is where the locals go. Great to sit outside with your meal and a beer. Very friendly lovely staff as well. Definitely recommend.

We ate here a few times on our recent trip to Cairns. Great $10 breakfast deals with a juice and well priced dinners. Highly recommend the acai bowls and green juices. Service was also fantastic. One morning the waitress brought my husbands wrap out and said another was on the way because the first looked slightly squashed-great service. Also baby... More

We came here twice and we ate the Active Acai bowl for 14$ and Avocado smashed & Poached Eggs on a Vienna toast with a free juice for just 9 $ We ate a lot of these bowls before... More
