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

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

A good strong blend - very smooth and full of flavour. Fancy coffee art on top :). Not right on Lake street - head down village lane and you’ll find it. Best coffee in north qld.

Awesome coffee - well balanced. Great service

Great venue, great location. Staff are attentive but lack slightly in training which would be expected from a venue such as this. Coffee has a great flavour profile but milk could use some work. Staff 9/10. Venue 10/10. Coffee 9/10

Best cafe Sing Sing Espresso in cairns for 2016

Coffee was great and we will return during our stay. Lovely little laneway location.

Nice and vibrant Cafe, unfortunately at the end of a lane which make it hard to find. Cold brew coffee is really nice, slightly bitter after taste but not too much. Espresso nicely served in hand made cups and smooth till the last drop. Really enjoyed spending some time here, Ritch was really friendly!

Nice little alley way location, coffee is good and staff are North Queensland friendly. A nice place to visit early in the morning. Worth a visit.

Best cafe Blackbird Laneway in cairns for 2016

They do a long filter coffee but had run out at lunch time, went for a cold brew instead of the wait. It was a nice fruity, sweet brandy flavour. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Coffee was the best I had in cairns. Always full definitely a local favorite

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.

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.
