We stopped here a couple of times during our stay and enjoyed it every time. The cafe is a mecca for anyone visiting the strand for any reason. It is constantly filled with people and even given this...the service is quite quick. Coffee's are nice and pleasant and we never had a bad one. Their Power Muesli is marvellous and healthy, the service is quick and pleasant however the overwhelming drawcard of this cafe is the atmosphere. Situated with a large fig tree outside its front door with plenty of seating for the patrons it is a veritable mecca for people watchers. With it's popularity as a cafe you also get a lot of Bike Riders frequenting the area. Whilst I do not have anything against bike riders...they do tend to take up a lot of space when they arrive. However it is only a minor inconvenience. There is a Coffee Club right next door, yet it seems to be a fall back for those who have missed a seat at Juliette's. Highly recommend a coffee and piece of cake from here or just grabbing an ice cream and taking a walk along the Strand. For the peoples watchers....you could spend an hour or two here just watching the world go by. Definitely recommend as a must do when in Townsville.
Went to this nice cafe just for a refreshment after walking in the Strand in Anzac Day morning and was really impressed by quality, nice staff and beautiful location. Despite being really busy all of the girls were very competent, professional and smiling all the time. The hazelnut cheesecake was nice and special, and the frozen yogurt on top of the fruit mix was the best I've ever had. Thank you guys, and well done :)
The gelato shakes are all sorts of delicious. I've taken to having one instead of my usual ice cream.
The addition of the thick, black umbrellas provides shade but makes the place look gloomy :-(
If torn between Juliette's & Coffee Club, choose Juliette's better quality, better prices.
Could this be the most perfect location for a gelato bar ?? My tip: it's all good .. enjoy the view.
