Crossroads Cafe at the Gateway to Daintree

Friday Nights - Fish & Chips

Following the advertising that the Crossroads Cafe was open again we went along to the Friday night Fish & Chips.

We loved it, from the Gossips Sauvignon Blanc at $15 per bottle to the generous serve of Mackerel & tasty fries at $12.50. (see previous post for menu)

There was some live music from the Piano Man and the place was jumping with locals from 8 to 80.

The Crossroads Cafe is the most strategically placed eatery in Daintree. To go to any part of Daintree you must pass by it because it is at the Ferry turn off from the Mossman - Daintree Road. 

Truly the Gateway to Daintree.

Big Barramundi Garden - BYO

BYO at the Big Barramundi Garden

Brunch & Lunch

Deserves a mention if visiting Daintree Village because of its fresh produce, reasonable price and being able to "Bring Your Own" wine. 
The Big Barra has a most extensive menu with a real local flavour. Right in the middle of the main street of Daintree.

Daintree Eco Lodge - Julaymba Restaurant

Rainy Sunday afternoon in the Rainforest.
Open Tablelands steak sandwich with a Margaret River claret for lunch. It seems the new epicurean regime has things under control nicely and with some swish service. 
(The Daintree Eco Lodge is on the south side of the Daintree River on the Mossman - Daintree Road just before Barrat Creek bridge.)

Mossman Memorial Bowls Club - Jack High Bistro

Next door to Daintree Horizon Estate in Mossman is the Mossman Memorial Bowls Club and the Jack High Bistro. The club was voted the best Far North Queensland for 2013 a distinction it has achieved several times before. It has a bar, bistro, gaming room and lounge which is all air-conditioned, a rarity anywhere near Daintree.  The drawbacks are no undercover parking and the wifi does not extend to patrons. (Both of these features are resounding disappointments.)
Back to dining, the food is OK but a tad overpriced and the limited wine selection (no wine list) was reasonably priced.
