This is a relaxed place for breakfast or brunch... Overlooks the water at Holloways .... Just so tranquil ... Coffee is suburb and food is great ...

Coolums has been closed for ages. If you want commercial food at Holloway's Beach, Straits on the Beach next door is still open and has great views. Not sure re food as it's been a while.

We enjoyed Coolums, we only went once and the meal was good but expensive. We found a lot of the restaurants in Cairns expensive. The setting here is the selling point aand it is gorgeous especially if you arrive before dark, right on the beach.
