As you stroll through the bustling town of Port Douglas along Macrossan Street, you’ll notice just how many incredible places there are to eat!
We have cafes and restaurants by the dozen and coffee nooks that always leave you coming back for more. If you wanted, you could try a new breaky spot each day of your holiday! While that sounds like fun, it may be easier for us to break it down for you. Keep in mind that all of the Port Douglas eateries are truly impressive; these are just some of our favourites.
Here are the top breakfast spots in PD – we recommend trying and testing as many as you possibly can!
Grant Street Kitchen
The place that’s packed full of delectable pastries, baked treats, and sandwiches that only serve one purpose – satisfaction!
There’s too much deliciousness to go around at Grant Street Kitchen, and you’ll be glad you chose it as your ‘fuel-stop’ on a sunny morning in Tropical North Queensland. Of course, there is coffee and smoothies, which are the perfect accompaniments to your food.
Make sure to try their heavenly pastries that are all made in-house and will no doubt have you coming back for more. We personally love the chocolate croissants and the all-time Aussie favourite – sausage rolls!
The Little Larder
It’s safe to say that The Little Larder is one of the town’s favourite places to eat for breakfast or lunch. Recently relocated into a bigger space, this café only delivers the best of the best when it comes to tasty plates and fabulous service.
There are endless options for brilliant food that will make your tastebuds dance. Excellent food and top coffee is what you can expect at this gem of a diner. Smoked salmon with avocado on wood-fired ciabatta – that’s a big yes from us!
Oh Café Fresq, you good thing you! Fresq is one of the most delightful places in town for a fresh juice and a coconut chia pudding – what an ideal way to start a day in the tropics. There are options for all the breaky classics too, like; eggs your style, smashed avo or big breakfasts.
This spot is smack bang in the middle of Port, so it’s a great place to begin before a day of exploring town or the Sunday Markets. It’s quick, easy, and delicious – what more could you ask for?
With two spectacular venues to choose from at either St. Crispins (home of the iconic Bally Hooley) or the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina, you’ll have every reason to visit Choo Choo’s!
There’s an abundance of sweet and savoury dishes to choose from, with enough options to easily please everyone – including the kids. Sit by the water at the marina before a trip to the Great Barrier Reef, or relax by the golf course on St. Crispins.
Check out their Instagram page to stalk all their fantastic food and drink pics – you won’t regret it.
While each of the mentioned places are relatively close to Four Mile Beach, they don’t get any closer than Hi Tide on the esplanade! This place is so gorgeous that you’ll probably want to stay for lunch, and then dinner and drinks.
Hi Tide is such a scenic beach spot beneath the palm trees, and the food is to die for. The breaky menu includes Eggs Benedict with smoked ham, bacon or salmon and a tasty Middle Eastern Shakshuka. Light and fresh options include House Made Granola or a Superfood Salad! Absolutely delish.
Grab your favourite morning drink of choice, be it coffee or a Raspberry and Coconut smoothie, and be on your way!
That’s enough food talk to make anybody hungry. Who’s ready to eat? We sure are!
