Chai lattes with a tropical view
About an hour north of Cairns is Port Douglas. On a recent trip to far North Queensland, we enjoyed a scenic drive from Cairns to Port Douglas. In Port Douglas is a lovely little cafe/restaurant called Hi Tide.
The menu is updated throughout the year in line with obtaining fresh, seasonal produce from tropical North Queensland. For breakfast this particular day, I enjoyed smashed Avocado with 2 poached eggs on pumpkin toast with charred corn and chilli lime salsa ($19)
The casual, modern relaxed cafe/restaurant is located at the Peninsula Boutique Hotel and is open 7 days for all-day light snacks or beverages with breakfast from 7am, lunch from 12pm and dinner from 5.30pm.
It is licenced and they advertise Sundowers at the bar every evening from 4.30pm with Happy Hour drinks. My husband and I both agree that it would be good to return to enjoy this. The tropical climate with the gentle ocean breeze would go well with any of their cocktails on the menu.
