Really good food and coffee for a reasonable price. This is in a great spot for an early coffee and food before going on the boats. I even managed to pick up a hat and some sunscreen before going out to the reef. A one stop shop that's convenient.

Al Porto is probably our preferred brunch spot in Cairns. Good portion size, yummy pumpkin bread for gluten free option, happy to substitute items and speedy service. Nice to sit outside and enjoy looking out over the water.

This is a small café to which we have returned - surely a good sign? They do a really good coffee, and though the choice for cakes etc. to go with the coffee is a bit restricted, what they have is good. I found the home made banana bread and carrot cakes delicious. The staff are really friendly, the fruit... More

What a great breakfast cafe. Should have guessed by the crowds by 8am! Line up out the door for their coffee :) Fast service. Their scrambled eggs were lightly cooked as ordered and a generous serve.

Sensational for brekky or lunch. Doesn't pretend to be anything it's not. Fantastic prices, good service and better food. Perfect for the non extravagant holiday

I ordered a soy latte today before I head out to the reef. I haven't had any coffee there before . And this was the first time and last. As you can see in the photo, there's no froth just air bubble.
