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.
