The Bush Pantry


The Bush Pantry Capalaba is a cafe nestled in amongst beautiful native bushlands, that offers an extensive menu, including all-day breakfast, brunch, lunch and high tea.

With bright and cosy seating indoors, as well as a large and spectacular deck that overlooks native bush, the cafe creates a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. If it’s a sunny day, you’re likely to have a bit of company whilst you dine on the deck, like that of a kookaburra, cockatoo and other beautiful wildlife that live in the surrounding area.

More than just a regular cafe, this not-for-profit provides supported employment for people with a disability. This empowers them by giving them the opportunity to learn new skills and gain experience in both the kitchen and around the cafe. The cafe is also fully wheelchair accessible, pram, pet and child-friendly.

As winners of the 2019 Redlands Business and Retail awards, it’s safe to say you will enjoy whatever you decide to pick off the menu. But if you can’t decide what to try for lunch, the cafe suggests two of their most popular dishes.
