Great food that was served hot and fresh. I felt bad for the staff in the kitchen as there is no air conditioner in any building in this part of the world. Great food and good prices considering the location is quiet remote. Chicken burger...More

Cafe location not much to look at but food genuinely delicious - fresh burgers, fish tacos, homemade falafel and tabbouleh, great coffee. Really glad we read the reviews and tried it for lunch.

Had breakfast and lunch here. Coffee was fabulous (particularly iced coffee) but the meals were less fabulous. The fish and chips were awful (frozen recooked fish) but the breakfast was good (eggs on toast). Nice spot as well only a bit hot in the afternoon...More

Great lunch had before spending some time exploring nearby cape tribulation beach. Wraps were great, but more surprising was the excellent flat white served. Brilliant - well done.

Fish for lunch melted in the mouth and the chips were just as good. Fish ttasted and smelt fresh. Price was very good considering where you were. Good value for money.

Great food and service including vegetarian options. Reasonably priced and suitable for families. Outdoor seats with views of the Daintree rainforest. Great place to eat before doing a tour or activity. Efficient service with smile.

We stopped here for a quick lunch before our next walk and had the best burgers. I got the chicken burger that had delicious avocado and salad - it was perfection. Thanks for a lovely quick stop, fast service with a friendly smile.

It was 4pm, right on closing time, but they happily made our coffee and we got muffins and banana bread. All great tasting and good coffee with parking right out front.
