Best casual dining experience. Jaffles are to die for. Coffee best in cairns. Juices refreshing and staff and service is top class. Highly recommend for breakfast or lunch. I’ll be back

Great flavours for such simple dishes (essentially toasted sandwiches and dipping sauces). Coffee was good and staff friendly and attentive.

I'm not 100% sure as I'm not gluten free, but I would think they might have gluten free bread.
