Worst food and service I have ever experienced! We had items missing off our overcooked meals and when I mentioned it was told sorry will fix it up right away. 15 minutes later still waiting. One of our party hadn't even received his meal which was just 2 toasted sandwiches after 45 minutes of waiting and there were only two... More

If you like cheap junk food then this is the place for you. Apparently the coffee is very good. You can get fresh fruit juice but that is the only healthy item available.

This is the first eatery after exiting the train or Sky Rail. It is nothing fancy but it is a place to stop and rest and let the rest of the crowd go by. The servers seem a bit overwhelmed and unorganized. People just arriving were being waited on before people who were already waiting. Good place to stop for... More

The place is the first one from the train or skyrail. Pretty crowded so you will need to wait . The doughnuts were good. The fresh juices might not be fresh since I could see canned fruits and other refrigerated juices being used. Will probably give it a miss if I'm looking for a juice or smoothie

Passing through, looking for something refreshing for our kiddos. Our son, who has a dairy allergy was bummed to find out their smoothies are made with dairy, until the manager/owner(?) offered to make one with soy. Then later, after being unable to obtain water to refill our bottles and not pay $3 each, offered to fill ours with cold water... More

Burgers weren't too bad but customer service was very poor. You would expect at a touristy town people would be nicer.

I went up to Kuranda with a friend for their festival on the weekend just gone. As we were getting back in the car I went to grab a few bottles of water for the drive home from the Windmill Cafe. Chatting with the guy behind the counter and he asked me what brought me to Kuranda and I said... More

I visit Kuranda reasonably regularly with relatives from overseas and interstate. I made the mistake of going to this Café on my most recent visit - and will never make that mistake again. Orders were incorrectly delivered. Staff were both rude and dismissive and we were all left to feel as if we should have been thankful for being allowed... More
