Can't Recommend Enough! - Edit

This place is so wonderful. The food is nice and fresh and the staff are always amazing. It's a great place to go down for some lunch and enjoy the free wifi.

Cons: Not a whole lot of taste variety

THE BEST - Edit

This place is my go to all the time. I can't get enough of the Mighty Wise and breakky boats. The sauce is to die for and you really get a massive meal that keeps you full ALL day. The peanut butter wolf is my favourite smoothie. If you can't fit it all in make sure you ask for a take away dish.

Pros: The best, My favourite , DELICIOUS

Cons: It can take a while for food to be made

Delicious vegan food - Edit

We have eaten here several times. Often we get the hotdogs which are huge and very filling. Have also tried pizzas and toasties. Vegan cakes and slices also available. Lovely quite shopping centre to eat at. Parking at the Pier can be difficult to get sometimes, but its worth the walk if we have to park far away.

Cheeky Yam - Edit

My daughter and I have recently gone Vegan so checking out what Cairns has to offer.
Cheeky Tam was our first venture out and it was the best tasting, healthy delicious food and drink we have ever had. The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledable. The latte made with soy milk was delicious and my daughter had the Peanut butter smoothie ( devine). They also have Vegan treats so a few were taken home. Thank you Cheeky Yam

One of the best vegan meals I've had! - Edit

Pros: big portions, all vegan, staff

Delicious - Edit

This might have been our best meal in Australia, just something about the flavors and wholesomeness of the two dishes we ordered (can't remember what the were but both from the front of the regular menu which is fairly small). The food court of the mall was open to other happenings, not too scenic but interesting people to watch across from a dance school and a Himalayan shop.

mighty wise! - Edit

Omg this place is amazing! there aren't many vegan places in Cairns but Cheeky Yam rivals some of the best places in Australia. get the mighty wise hotdog for a big portion with great ingredients (lots of avocado). the grilled cheese is really nice as well! they take a little while to cook the food (about 15 minutes) but it is worth it because the taste and presentation is amazing.

Pros: great presentation , amazing taste, friendly staff

Cons: slow service (but worth the wait because a lot of
