    I went there a couple of years ago and it was pretty ordinary. Mareeba up in the tablelands is good if youre heading up that way.

    Gday gm,

    Have a look through this list to start of with and work from there... Used to be a great little specialist coffee shop in the arcade opposite the Hides Hotel and about 100-150 metres going South down the main CBD drag. Its been a while though so dont know if the coffee is still good or if the cafe is still there. All the best,

    If you get to daintree my old man works at the general store/restruant on the coffee machine, ask for Ivan.

    Re cairns, its a bit of a desert for coffee, most use lavazza or some other similar commercial brand. Their is one passionate retailer though at the entrance to the pier market place via the esplanade lagoon development, believe they roast their own blends in store, let me find you a link.... 0&s=qld&snf=as&t=bus&tm=1195207943

    Was there a place near the contemporary art gallery that had okay coffee? I cant remember what the coffee was like but it was a nice place to sit. Hmmm dont take my word for the quality of coffee - it was 3 years ago.
