  • Great Cafe on Cairns Promenade with views over the waterfront. Very busy on a Sunday morning. Had their Big Brekky $21.50. A big feed which I was not able to finish. Very friendly staff and food came out quick despite them being so busy! Great coffee too. Also had a tropical fruit mix juice. Very tasty.
  • Muddy’s is a locals favourite and tourists alike. Coming here means good coffee, drinks, food seating and takeaway available by relaxed and fast paced staff who serve with impeccable customer care. Located central to cairns and on the esplanade. With amazing views and water play and parks for the kids- including a fenced playground right next door. Although busy year round, it’s still a fantastic spot to go enjoy! So glad you’re there Muddy’s! Keep it up! I love the fish tacos. Iced lattes, kids smoothies and great breakfasts! Covid safe and careful cleanly staff. If I could give you a spare star ⭐️ I would! Five is a good start. Thank you to Muddy’s staff! I’ll take a discount for being your Google biggest fan! ;)
