Now called the Centro bar & grill!!! We had macadamia crusted fish with mango salsa. The mango was a rancid slab of mango and not in a salsa mix & we are still looking for the macadamia nut crust. Also the dessert was stale. Very disappointed. Not used to doing such a bad review.

This place has been replaced by Centro bar and grill. I went for breakfast when it wasn't busy and ordered a coffee and a meal. I waited half an hour for my coffee which I could see sitting on the pass for at least 10 mins and after waiting over an hour for my meal (and asking for it twice)... More

We tried out Sugatrain for breakfast last week while we were in Townsville. We had the breakfast buffet which was very good, well stocked with great items and very affordable. Coffee was good, our server was great at bringing us what we needed and we were quite happy overall.

Quite close to our hotel, but much cheaper and probably nicer breakfast. We could choose either buffet, continental or a la carte. There was a good selection and my eggs benedict were yummy. Staff were pleasant. The location was very quiet and not many diners - but that's probably due to the downturn in the mining industry which has severely... More

Went for brekkie with family on a weekday. Place half empty, but we joined the line for the counter which was obviously where we needed to order. Line was long and we waited patiently. When we got to the front of the line, the older lady on the counter barked at us for not already having a table or having... More

On business in Townsville and this was recommended by the hotel we were staying at for breakfast. Very average breakfast that did not align with the description in the menu. We hadbthe avocado and corn salsa...the salsa was more like some corn thrown on the plate with onions. I had poached eggs on top and they were cold and hard... More

Top spot for a pre dinner drink, sitting in a red armchair in the open french doors, as the Palmer St crowd casually meander past ... ah it is good to be just sitting there, sipping that drink, watching the world go by, and enjoying the balmy Townsville evening air.

An average breakfast. I had the avocado with corn salsa on toast and my husband had the continental breakfast. For $16 I was served two small pieces of bread with a light touch of avocado and a lot of corn salsa. It tasted nice but not worth the money I paid. Coffee was nice.
