Panorama Café is the latest stylish eatery to make its mark in the newly renovated Indooroopilly Shopping Centre.
The café is a quiet and comfortable dinning spot for individuals and small groups to escape the hustle and bustle of shopping. Ambience is on trend yet welcoming with artistic hanging light globes, bouquets of fresh lilies, divine orchards in fish bowl vases and floor to ceiling glass windows that bring in the sunshine from outside and offer views over Keating Park.
Panorama Café serves up affordable and freshly made salads, an extensive selection of sandwiches and gourmet mains such as roasted artichoke with herb marinated lamb fillet to king prawn and seared scallop risotto. Coffees, cold drinks and cakes are also available.
And in a nice touch, the Head Chef of Panorama Café makes all homemade sauces and dressings by hand and machine.
Some tried and tested recommendations are:
1. Tasmanian Smoked Salmon with wholegrain rye bread and honey mustard dressing is the hero of the specials menu, delicately plated with an artichoke, cucumber and tomato salad
2. The Panorama Ceaser Salad comprised of crisp lettuce, bacon and shaved parmesan cheese and a single hidden anchovy.
3. The New York Cheesecake and Fresh Cream with a quality coffee or iced chocolate is a great choice when taking a moment to wind down from the busy halls of Indooroopilly Shopping Centre. Despite its generous size, this dessert is easily devoured in a few bites.
In a nutshell: Panorama Café combines exceptionally attentive service, flavoursome meals and a quiet space with an atmosphere that allows everyone to unwind with a coffee and a good book, conduct business meetings over a great lunch or settle down mid-shopping with friends.
Need to know: (time of writing: 8 August 2014) Panorama Café is currently serving a small selection of salads, sandwiches, cakes and drinks until the official opening and until the full operation of kitchen facilities are available.
