On the way up the coast, this is where we stopped for breaky. Service was quick and prices were decent. Nice little outdoor area for the morning sun although the aging furniture lets it down a little. Food was nice though.

"Mistaken Identity" Thankyou Annabanna K for taking the time to write a review on your recent breakfast experience, however your review and photo is not of my cafe "The Junction Cafe" in Mossman QLD. Your photo shows food that is not a representation of the style of breakfast menu my chef serves nor presents, we use only crisp white plates... More

Ate lunch here on our way through Mossman with the kids. Staff were super friendly. Nice atmosphere and the food was superb. Highly recommend this place. We had the sundaes, beef burger and the fritters. Massive serves and super tasty and fresh.

Well worth the stop on the way to the Daintree, especially for those who love a great cup of coffee! Service is excellent and there is a big range of cakes and breakfast choices if you havent eaten - especially the Laminations, best I've tasted by far!

Only my second time here and after the Saturday markets someone suggested we go get breakfast. We did get warned it might be a bit of a wait, we ended up wating an hour for food but wowee was it worth it. Crispy bacon, perfect eggs and the best hollandaise for miles around. Amazing start to my day and will... More

Spot on coffee and delicious fresh breakfast! What I can only guess is the owner is helpful and friendly. Made finding our meeting spot on Cooya beach super easy. French toast is light and accompanying fresh mango, vanilla labneh and mint is perfect!

By far the most fantastic food during our 6 weeks of travels in Australia. Not licensed but there is a Bottle O shop almost next door and they have no problem (and no charge) for bringing in something to drink. The food is very healthy and nutritious, and tastes absolutely fantastic. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. If you are... More
