Pizza in the park - Macrossan Street

Image
I am posting this as a promotion for the Port Douglas Cheap Eats website.  I like pizza and I like the park.
We dine out in port Douglas frequently but the cheap eats help us enjoy other dining options.
There are three take away pizza places in Port Douglas village but the closest to Market Park is Domino's in the Port Village Centre where Coles is. There are also two bottle shops in the same complex.
Talk about budget, Domino's do $5 pizzas:

And you can order by phone.

N17 Burger Co - 1/22 Macrossan Street

Image
Lunch time Burgers
One of the things that attracted us the most was the fact that N17 Burger Co is BYO for wine. They also have a beer and cider bottle licence.
We started with a Peroni mid-strength - $6.
Then some burgers; mine being BBQ Bacon Cheese Burger - $11.50, left above and my partner's being Cheese Burger - $12.50, right above. A side of Sweet Potato Fries - $5.
Everything arrived on time and piping hot with plenty of serviettes and hand wipes to finish.
We brought our own Wolf Blass Cabernet Sauvignon for a corkage fee of $4.
Verdict
There is a lot to like about this place and for a Macrossan Street Eatery good value for money. We found the Cheese Burger the best and enjoyed the Sweet Potato Fries. Considering the cost of the wine, our lunch came to slightly less than $50.
We will return.

Choo Choos at the Marina

Formally "Hogs Breath Cafe",  Choo Choos at the Marina is a bright airy cafe overlooking the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina at the Bally Hooley Station.

In no time at all the locals have started patronising it.

"Huevos Rancheros - $15"
Choo Choos at the Marina connects with Choo Choos at St Crispins which is another cafe on the Bally Hooley train line. Both cafes are also connected by the Choo Choo Explorer.

SASSI CUCINA - cnr Macrossan and Wharf Streets

Image
One of our popular lunch spots in Macrossan Street is Sassi's opposite ANZAC Park.
For lunch we like good value and to be able to dine at a high end restaurant for a reasonable cost is always a pleasure. To keep the prices down we order the house wine which comes in a half litre carafe for $13. The white is Pinot Grigio and the red is Shiraz.

Sardines, not out of a can but honest to good salt preserved sardines on ciabatta with garlic, light chilli, parsley and of course the salt that the sardines come in. Teams perfectly with the house white Pinot Grigio.

Enter the main course - Pizza and the house red.

Pizza - Napolitana - $24
With a light beer and a gin and tonic - $87 the lot.
