Cairns Romantic Accomodation – What’s for Breakfast?

A Cairns romantic breakfast for two in your Cairns romantic accommodation. Now that sounds like a good idea, strictly between the two of you of course. We have a top notch kitchen  at Wanggulay but there’s just one problem. Who is going to get out of bed, cook bacon and eggs, and butter the toast and make the coffee when you would rather linger in the private swimming pool or have a shower at the bottom of the garden. Good news is we have many other choices just for you to choose.

Cairns Romantic Accommodation – What’s for Breakfast at Kuranda?

Choice number one could be coffee, fruit, and frozen yogurt before you head for the railway station and take a romantic vintage train ride up the Barron River escarpment to the lovely, laid back village of Kuranda. This is a real peach of a place with a lovely covered market and restaurants and coffee shops galore. Try taking the return journey on the skyrail rainforest cableway. The gondolas are super comfy and the views incomparable drifting back down to your Cairns romantic accommodation.

Caffiend When Not Breakfasting in Your Cairns Romantic Accommodation

Our guests love getting out and exploring the local cafes, shops and restaurants. We can’t blame them because Cairns is home to some brilliant restaurants and cafes serving  fantastic local food. Caffiend is one of our favourite places on the odd weekend we stay over. Especially for a weekend brunch in a place dedicated to coffee, art and music.

To start with the coffee is fantastic. This alone will make you want to come back again. The beans are roasted by our local Tattooed Sailor Coffee Roasters, and you can certainly taste the difference. But the real star is the menu. The chefs at Caffiend take the best of  local tropical produce and turn it into something  quite amazing. A Caffiend breakfast is one of our favourite meals of the day.

One of the best we’ve tasted was a miso scramble with bonito, smoked salmon and avocado – yum! Caffiend isn’t just for breakfast though. We’ve had some great afternoon tea catch-ups there. And why wouldn’t you, with chocolate, ricotta and raspberry cake topped with locally made coconut gelato, dehydrated raspberries and coconut chips. In fact, we might just head off there now!

Cairns Romantic Breakfast Opportunities at Palm Cove

Palm Cove is a pretty little village 17 kilometres north of Cairns along the coastal Captain Cook Highway. Out of season, it has a population of some 1,250 people, making it an even better place to visit for a romantic breakfast. There is a row of signature palm trees all the way along the beach, a small island out to sea, and great protected swimming inland of the reef.

You will find the kind of pristine beaches and tree lined paths at Palm Beach that set walkers, joggers, and cyclists dreaming. The fishing is good with mackerel and giant trevally great catching off the cove jetty when they are biting. The Australian Good Food and Travel Guide lists 15 restaurants to consider for breakfast, lunch, and supper, and some of these we can personally recommend as very good bordering on exceptional.

Cairns Romantic Accommodation: How About Brunch Instead

Let’s face up to it and admit not all of us are morning people. As a counter proposal to rising early, how about a fresh fruit breakfast from your very own Wanggulay kitchen followed by a coffee. And perhaps a gentle stroll down to the river to tempt your taste buds for an inspiring brunch. Le Crouton at nearby Freshwater is one of our very best favourites, but is popular over weekends. This makes it an option for a mid-week  treat when staying at our Wanggulay romantic accommodation.

Now you might have guessed from the name that Le Crouton is a French establishment, but this isn’t actually a restaurant. Instead, it is an artisan-al bakery serving up all manner of pastries and and specialist breads.  The latter is so delicious you will want to grab a loaf or two and bring them back to Wanggulay. Before you do though, linger to taste their classic filled croissants, almond croissants, amazing brioches, and for the sweet tooth, their custard-cream horns. Bon appetit, but hide the bathroom scale  in our special paradise!
