Macaron Cafe, Cairns

This morning we haven't got any plan for where should we have our last morning breakfast in Cairns.  We wandered around the small city of Cairns and spotted this vibrant-looking cafe along the Ocean walk arcade.  I noticed that there was this lady making macaroons and cakes in the back door kitchen and they smelled so inviting.  I knew it right away that this is the one!!!!  The one which gonna fulfill the dragon in our tummy.

drying out the macaroons

Authentic French cafe in the heart of Cairns that quite newly open its door, just last few months ago.  Modern and chic looking cafe with a few nice touch of decorations, woody floor and chairs with 4 food showcases lined up that nearly take half of the cafe's space.  It's a one-stop cafe where you don't need to look no further, as they serves ranged of savoury food for brunch, home-made brewed coffee and heaps of sweet delicious treats as well.

Chicken, avocado, tomato croissandwich $7.50 and Hash Brown $2.50
His dish arrived first and right away I can smell those fabulous buttery aroma from the croissant.  Not only it smelled divine, taste absolutely wonderful too.  Toasted croissant made the outer skin flaky crisp but inside still soft bread texture, freshly made and those filling was delightful and incredibly tasty.  Really can't wait for my dish to come around..

Bacon & Egg Croissandwich $6.50
Yayy..  My dish has arrived, it doesn't look as fancy as my hubby's one but yet the flavour not that far off.  Split open croissant with scrambled egg and bacon in between then lightly toasted to give it a crunchiness.  Simple but something to-die-for.  Those croissant is absolutely delicious, rich in buttery flavour in every layer of pastry.  The best croissant ever tasted, which you won't forget in a hurry.  Wish that I could have another one but I'm sparing other half-side of my tummy for some sweets.

Iced Chocolate

Lemon Meringue Tart
Clockwise from top left: Passionfruit and Banana, Coconut, Raspberry and Rose Water, Tim Tam, Green Tea, and Blackberry Macaroon
The price of macaroon here is considerably cheap comparing to Sydney.  The small one costs only $2.20 each, which full of flavours and most of them comes with the glittery topping.  On the other hand, the big one which nearly triple in size costs $ 5.50

I'm so glad that we found this place.  The best of the best cafe I have ever eaten...  Why don't we have something this good in Sydney!!  Or probably we have but I just haven't discovered it yet..  Any recommendations???

Keep on reading for the last day in Cairns (Port Douglas):
