The contemporary open plan eatery with 2 level terraced deck makes the most of the stunning views across to the Howard Smith wharves, Brisbane River Walk and New Farm cliffs and is an unbeatable spot to catch some warm morning rays in winter or cool river breezes in summer.
Open for breakfast and lunch daily, and for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday, the international menu (which offers both light or substantial dishes) takes its inspiration from the history of the area. The grand heritage-listed building Yungaba, which has been converted into luxury apartments, was the first point of call for migrants from 1887 through to post World War II when it was a reception and training centre for European migrants.
Start the day with a home-made banana bread, Medley bircher muesli or lemon chiffon morning cake and breakfast dishes from around the world with the likes of Vietnamese Omelette, Marco Polo (hot smoked salmon with Indian spices, crispy kale, poached egg and hash brown), Chimichanga (Mexican tortilla, black bean rice, spicy pulled chicken and mozzarella with avocado and tomato salsa, or Mozzarella in Carroza (Italian salsa, melted mozzarella, rocket pesto with fried free-range eggs and toasted sourdough).
Come lunch-time dine on dishes such as Lasagna Rollata, Confit Duck, Lamb Curry, Sesame Crusted Barramundi or Frango a Africano (grilled chicken with spiced coconut sauce and balsamic reduction, cous cous and green beans).
To accompany there's a range of beers and ciders (local and international), and wines including Italian prosecco, French rose and Argentinian Malbec.
Nice to know - There's also a small kids menu for breakfast (ham & cheese croissant, toasted banana bread or scrambled eggs, bacon & sour dough toast) and lunch (penne pasta bolognese or fish with tomato sauce and side of vegetables). It’s also a great place for mums with prams to catch up, with plenty of space between tables and accessible waterfront paths leading to parking.
Need to know - There’s a council car park on Wharf St which usually has plenty of spots otherwise there’s multi-hour metered street parking around Wharf St and down near Captain Burke Park under the bridge. Medley Cafe is pet friendly, with dogs welcome to join their owners on the deck.
