Many of the best Cairns restaurants are found on the Boardwalk at the Pier Shopping Centre, along the Waterfront Esplanade or on Shields Street. Several of the five star resorts in Cairns also offer fabulous restaurants. Cairns is a laid back tropical town so generally casual dress if fine in most restaurants; as long as you have shoes and a sleeved shirt you should be ok.

There are many coffee shops and cafes scattered throughout the town where you can grab a quick coffee, sausage role or sandwich. These venues are generally very informal so bikinis and board shorts are accepted on the most part. If you find yourself in the city at 2am and are craving a snack you will be delighted by the collection of pizzerias, kebab shops and other miscellanies eateries that open throughout the night. Along the Esplanade, on Shields Street and on Spence Street you will find these 24 hour food stalls.
