Korean dessert café serving waffles and ice cold bingsu
Sweets Planet is a Korean dessert cafe serving up decadent waffles, ice cold bingsu, fruity smoothies and those all-important late night coffees.
If you're looking for a little pick-me-up at the end of a busy day, Sweets Planet is just the right place. There's a permanent message on the blackboard reminding customers that "When you're stressed, you eat ice cream, chocolate and sweets. You know why? Because "stressed" spelt backwards is "desserts".
Customers can choose to sit at cosy indoor tables or take in the atmosphere of Lake Street at the outdoor tables.
Sweets Planet's waffles are truly divine. You could just choose a fruit topping, but it's hard to resist combinations like the Nutella Waffle, served with strawberries, whipped cream, maple syrup, ice cream and, of course, Nutella.
Bingsu is a milky Korean shaved ice dessert, a lighter alternative to ice cream and a perfect treat to keep you cool on hot nights in Cairns. Bingsu can be served in a range of flavours with different toppings. Sweets Planet offers bingsu with mango, melon, green tea, coffee and more.
