A complete guide to Cairns Restaurants

Delicatessen Restaurants


Many modern delicatessens also have a small cafe attached, often serving exquisite espresso coffee and delicious rolls. The abundance of boutique smallgoods in a deli means the lunch selection is diverse and delicious.

Our Cairns delis are much-loved, rare diamonds. A place to catch up with foodie friends, oogle the wide range of exotic cheese and devour meat from far away lands.

Producer of cheese made from local Atherton Tablelands milk. Our favourite is their 'Gallozola', similar to the famous Italian cheese, gorgonzola.

Good delis are hard to find in Cairns, but hidden away in the Tropical area of Stratford is a charming oasis that is the perfect place to slow down and relax. Bask in the gentle atmosphere, dine on fresh food and sip delicious coffee. The staff at Stratford Deli and Cafe are helpful and very friendly. A highly enjoyable treat.

Victor's Gourmet Deli

229 Sheridan St, Cairns North, 4870
(07) 4031 2922

One of Cairns' few delis, and a worthy stop off for any self-respecting foodie. Victor's Deli has a good range of European cheeses and smallgoods, as well as a wide range of groceries from Italy and further abroad. They also make decent coffee, sandwiches and rolls. They do subscribe to the Italian slow food concept though, so don't rush quality.
