The Coffee was incredible. We went every morning for coffee (5 days in a row) even if we went to another restaurant for breakfast. Family loved it also -- great atmosphere to start each day in Port Douglas. Food was OK in Port Douglas, but this was the only 'destination' restaurant we found. Highly recommended.

While ambling we came across this cafe - had a coffee and then thought had did we not know about this place. If you like coffee it is a must - I had a chai latte - which turned out to be the best chai latte I have ever consumed - no syrups here. Great service, great find

Only managed to get to Origin Espresso on my last day in Port Douglas. Kicking myself that I didn't find the place earlier. The coffee was of high quality with the temperature just right. Good outdoor (footpath) seating.

We spent 10 days in Port Douglas went here for morning coffee every day. My husband had a flat white and cake even sometimes at 8.30am. I had iced coffee with ice cream and then varied it to an iced latte. So so good. Even bought coffee beans on our last day. Friendly, efficient service. Such a pleasure.

Of course its better than most Melbourne coffee. But not as good as the best Melbourne coffee. It is more than acceptable as a morning starter. The water is served at room temperature(bathroom temperature). How lovely it would be to see a chiller from which cups could be filled to accompany the coffee. Then I would give origin expresso five... More

Hi Mike. Seriously? We lost a star due to the lack of cold water. OMG. Warm water is better for your body in the tropics. We also have cold drinks and bottled water available in the fridge underneath the free tap water. Heading into the wet season its like a sauna up here. Chiller and cups aint going to happen....been... More

Best coffee in Port Douglas, and they even sell the Melbourne speciality, the magic. The outdoor area is relaxed and spacious and the cakes delish - a definite fave!

Tried their coffee this afternoon. Price on the high side. I found the coffee a bit "malty". Just hot enough. I preferred the coffee from Sparrow.

Let this customer in this afternoon. Attitude on the poor side (so i charged him more). I found the customer a bit "beige". Stone cold. I preferred the customer before them. #imadeanotherfunnyone Glen More
