Saabi On Manson


Every neighbourhood needs a Saabi on Manson – a historic weatherboard shop containing a charming little cafe with congenial hosts, a great communal feel and all kinds of nooks and crannies to hang out. James and Andrew, consider themselves not so much owners but  Saabi's resident custodial guardians!

There's a pocket-sized courtyard, back yard where customers can sit at a table or spread out a rug and relax, and inside is a mish mash of vintage furniture. On the all day menu is a range of home made eats - from  roasted mushrooms with lemon ricotta & balsamic glaze, fresh avo with mint & fetta and a selection of  fresh baked muffins, exquisite desserts and Veneziano coffee.

Saabi on Manson Hendra

It's all too easy to drive past and miss it which is probably what the locals would prefer but word has clearly travelled about this little treasure, tucked away on tree-lined Manson Road surrounded by sprawling Queenslanders.

Good to know - Take away menu available. Great children's options on the menu!

Need to know - Dogs are most welcome, with a courtyard for dogs to hang out with their owner-diners.
