I stumbled accross this whilst out looking for another place to get my coffee. Here for work i wasn't sure if Cairns would do good coffee, but was pleasantly surprised. The decor is on trend, fast service, good coffee.

Coffee was great!! Menu looks equally as great, so I will will definitely head there for breakfast one day soon. Friendly, efficient staff - and very busy, so it is obviously a well-loved destination.
