The Chambers, Cairns City

CAIRNS | The Chambers is a cafe in Cairns, housed in a beautifully restored 1920s former National Australia Bank building, that retains much of the building’s original features.

During the day, it’s a cafe with a breakfast and lunch menu focused on dishes made using quality local produce sourced from regional suppliers and growers. At night, the venue transforms into a bar and function space.

Dishes that we ordered and enjoyed include the “Risk it for the brisket” –  12 hour slow cooked beef brisket sourdough, two poached eggs, smoked chipotle hollandaise & crushed hazelnuts, and the “Chambers McMuffin” – the cafe’s take on the Maccas classic, with bacon, fried egg and cheese.

Coffee is quality, brewed a variety of ways. There’s also alternative lattes and milks, fresh juices and smoothies, and a cocktail, gin, and wine list.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
