Tosca Restaurant at Cairns Central Shopping Center serves up the best authentic Italian meals and gourmet pizzas you could wish for.
Open all day you can head to the cinema to catch a movie after a delicious meal.
Tosca Italian and Pizza Restaurant is always busy, so that must tell you something. If you're a coffee lover, then come here for a really good coffee and a rest from shopping.
The iced coffee's are the best!
You have to come here to try one...we can't tell you how good they are in words.
And, for an Italian and Pizza Restaurant, they bake great scones!
David and I first came here years ago. Actually soon after we met!
I can't remember much about it, so obviously it didn't leave much of an impression on us! I do remember I did like it, but was never something to rave about.
I've since been there for breakfast and remember really enjoying it. It was also really cheap for a sit down breakfast in Cairns.
So why didn't we go back?
I don't really know!
Maybe it was the wait staff. Maybe it was the food. Maybe it was the atmosphere.
But, it was probably the menu. If I don't get inspired by the menu, I don't have any incentive to return.
Whatever it was, in the years that we missed, they've changed something…and it's all for the good.
Now they've got us hooked and we're going back for more.
David said he wants to start from the top of the menu and continue down each time we go back, until we've had everything off it.
And I have to agree with him.
Their menu is something that's inspired us to come back. Not to mention the food!
So, after all these years, why did we return to Tosca Restaurant?
Well it has all to do with the weather!
Once upon a stinking hot day…
We couldn't stand being at home, the air cons weren't doing a good enough job, so we decided to go out for lunch. So, where should we go?
The only place I could think of was Toscas. Why?
Because it was at Cairns Central and it's air conditioned.
So, what's changed?
Why are we hooked?
For me it was the Prawn and Salmon Linguine. It was gorgeous! A real taste explosion. What more can I say…
For David, it was the Fish and Chips.
When we walked in, he saw them and decided, after much deliberation, that the fish and chips was what he was going to order. He wasn't disappointed.
We've been back again for their breakfast and it's yummmm!
Bacon, two eggs, hash brown, toast...and all for $9.90!!!
How can you go wrong? Well you can, but not here!
You just have to try Tosca Restaurant for their food and coffee. And it's easy to find.
Upstairs in the middle of Cairns Central.
Do you love their famous coffee or is it the pizza's?
What about their great breakfasts?
Is it the service or the convenience of sitting down after a big shop?
