Best cafe The Chamber Room Espresso & Brew Bar in cairns for 2016

An adults only Espresso & Brew Bar where a coffee coma is possible...

Consistently great coffee (was up for the weekend and visited each day). Using bonsoy.

Was my first stop landing in Cairns and I was happy to see some familiar Melbourne brands being repped so far north in a cute fitout. Not quite on point with the espresso but filter was awesome. I have returned for a flat white and it was okay just not quite the usual size and ratio of coffee>milk I’m used to. Keep up the important work of good coffee in cairns

Best cafe Sing Sing Espresso in cairns for 2016

This place is still amazing. Great vibe, great coffee, great people. Love love love.

After a week here of finding good coffee found a great coffee here. Tried the chamber room and bang and grind and this is my pick. Down little alley.

Absolutely loved the coffee at Sing Sing - very smooth, delicious blend. Best in Cairns! Great breakfast brioche burger too! Staff are delightful.

Best cafe Blackbird Laneway in cairns for 2016

Great little cafe. Had a large takeaway latte, really nice flavour, just the right temperature. Friendly service. Would highly recommend.

Coffee can be a bit inconsistent, but the single origin long black I had this morning was dope! Jasmine is the sweetest barista ever!

Had a beautiful Colombian single origin. Great service, lovely staff. Been the best in Cairns for a while now, check it out


Ten One Twenty

Cairns City

Best cafe Ten One Twenty in cairns for 2016

Tasty, smooth macchiato, and v nice French toast!

Didn’t enjoy my flat white and wasn’t my kind of place to hang out

Best cafe Caffiend in cairns for 2016

We roast our own coffee under the label Tattooed Sailor coffee roasters.Running milk and black blends, with single Origin for v60.Linea PB, EK43 Simonelli

Service was shot. No acknowledgement, asked if it was ok to take a seat, yes, then no follow up??? Only for staff to then try and push me out of the table I just sat at?? Love the shared table tops. Just hated the lack of love to singular customers.

Coffe was ok (without being amazing), hot chocolate was average... that said, the food and atmosphere were amazing!

Food was nice but a bit random. Service was a bit scattered. Flat white was nice and was excited to learn it was locally roasted


Bang & Grind

Cairns City

Best cafe Bang & Grind in cairns for 2016

One of Cairns few speciality Espresso Cafe's offering boutique coffee internationally sourced and roasted in Cairns, gourmet foods locally sourced and prepared by our brilliant in house chefs, crushed juices and smoothies, and sweets made in house.

Pleasant surprise. Stopped for breakfast but had to try the coffee as that is their drawcard. Staff are very friendly and efficient, giving the place a good vibe . I tried the Homey Badger, in honour of Daniel Ricciardo.

Nice strong flavoured coffee. Great service! Nice cafe atmosphere.
