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

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

The coffee is made to perfection with the excellent choice of dark roast. Modern and minimalistic interior. Fabulous service

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

Best cafe Sing Sing Espresso in cairns for 2016

Not sure why this is rated 9.5 as it was seriously one of the worse coffees we have had. It was so bitter we had to throw it out (now that’s a first). Great service though 😊

Very nice and service was fantastic. Atmosphere is lacking. Not the best espresso in cairns CBD, but definitely up there.

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

Best cafe Blackbird Laneway in cairns for 2016

Delicious coffee. Lovely beans and skilled baristas.

I first came here 2 years ago and this place is still producing great coffee. My espresso was smooth and flawless. Very dark and deep and rich. Great service by the girls too. Highly recommended.

Coffee was nice but could have been hotter. Had to drink it quicker and couldn't take time to savor.

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

Gr8 coffee, nice rounded taste and extraction and tamping was well done(no grains in bottom of cup). Food was excellent and good value and the team here have a good rapport with their patrons.

Great Coffee!! Thanks Guys Almond latte is always a bit of a risk but you nailed it.

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.
