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

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

Awesome spot for coffee enthusiasts, really nice pour overs. Using Melbourne roasters, good for filter and espresso drinkers

Coffee and atmo is awesome. Don’t take your kids.

Was hard to find but my long black was good. Limited food and quite pricey for what you get.

Best cafe Sing Sing Espresso in cairns for 2016

Coffee is ok. Good atmosphere in the cafe and the staff are nice.

Cool vibes - love the location,fit out and tasty food options. Coffee is not always consistent though and not quite at the caliber I would expect as number 1 in Cairns.

Excellent coffee and atmosphere, the equal of Melbourne or Sydney. Nice quiet laneway setting.

Best cafe Blackbird Laneway in cairns for 2016

Really nice coffee, one of the best in Cairns. Staff really clued on, awesome set up.

Great coffee if the staff have it ready. Batch brew and single origin espresso rarely available. Friendly staff and cosy shared space.

Has quickly become my top pick in Cairns. Always down for barista’s suggestions on rotating single origins/cold brews/batch brews but also can’t go past a perfectly made flat white. Highest quality and consistency I’ve had all round since moving to Cairns.


Ten One Twenty

Cairns City

Best cafe Ten One Twenty in cairns for 2016

Finally a coffee serves at the right temperature, consistent and smooth (the cappuccino is anyway), amazing food with very good healthy product! My favorite thing is that everything is house made so you know what you drink/eat and it comes guilt free. 10/120 my favorite morning ritual, love the spot and live the staff.

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

Awesome breakfast, good menu. Coffee a bit inconsistent but usually pretty good.

Attentive staff and nice atmo. Pour offer was a little weak and under but ok. Food looked good.

Coffee excellent. Food amazing. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere. I always visit when in cairns


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.

Exceptional Coffee. Two blends both outstanding. Two of the best coffees I have had. The two breakfasts we had were both fantastic and quick as well. Will be back everyday while in Cairns
