    Dundee’s with the fishes

    Cairns Aquarium, 5 Florence St

    Opening any day now....

    All the delicious dishes Dundee’s serves up at its waterfront venue are coming to Cairns Aquarium's spectacular giant fish tank setting. There'll also be a focus on fresh seafood for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    YOMG Cairns is back!

    Abbott St

    YOMG's mouth-watering fruit and sweet-topped frozen yoghurt and other ice-cold treats disappeared from Cairns about a year ago.

    C’est Bon all day every day!

    20 Lake St

    Our favourite French restaurant is now open 7 days a week and has added breakfast to its dining options! Along with mouth-watering pastries (yes, the French do it best), give the creme brulee granola and fruit a try!

    We're your servants

    78 Supply Rd, Bentley Park

    Servant Espresso is perhaps a secret southsiders have been keeping to themselves...

    As well as awesome coffee, mum's catch-ups are made easy thanks to a kids’ playroom and the regular offer of free babychinos -  PLUS the owners encourage people to plug their laptops in and take full advantage of the Wifi. Not a bad workplace setting at all.

    Bailey's triple treat

    163 Abbott Street

    Crystalbrook Collection's second Cairns hotel - Bailey - is set to open mid-year, delivering three new dining options in the process.

    There's an Australian outback-themed bar and grill, while the old-school Milk Bar is sure to produce some nostalgia.

    Option number three is called Colada, home to a Mexican taste fiesta.
