Best Things to Do In Stones Corner

Stones Corner has had many incarnations over the years, from its origin as Burnett’s Swamp to the birthplace of Stones Ginger Beer (which was once sold on the corner here), from which it acquired its name.

By mid last century it was a fashionable shopping hub with Finney Isles and Co department store and the Alhambra picture theatre, after which decades followed as a factory outlet destination. Today, with most of the discount retail moved on, it’s reinvented itself as a funky alternative eats and drinks precinct with some interesting boutiques and shops in the mix.

So if it’s been a while since a trip to this laidback tree-trimmed village with the jumble of architectural styles, colourful local characters and the statue of beloved village dog Monty, here are all of the good reasons to visit:

The rustic corner café in an old bank that kick-started the whole new era of Stones Corner as a foodie hub is still a mecca for the discerning coffee and food set as it continues to dish up great chef-prepared fare that is worth travelling for

Located in the heart of Stones Corner, Stones Throw is a funky café with a cool vibe, serving single origins alongside a top-notch house blend with an inspired menu

The grand old lady of Stones Corner, perched on the site of the early Stones Ginger Beer bar is a local institution and everyman’s pub. Enjoy a beer here outside under the jacaranda tree or some gourmet pub fare

An old Queenslander turned quirky cafe and bar with backyard garden, Shady Palms is the convivial neighbourhood local, with local beers, a cider fridge, trivia nights, delicious food and so much more 

One of Brisbane's most popular burger bars has made its home in the heart of Stones Corner, serving up a delectable range of burgers, together with hot dogs, salads and desserts as well as top shelf drinks 

Inspired by the cultural diversity of Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Staten Island, 5 Boroughs brings a taste of New York City to Stones Corner, serving ribs, burgers, beer and bourbon

Clove n' Honey sits in prime position overlooking Logan Road, with tables spilling out onto an undercover veranda where diners enjoy delicious foodie fare for breakfast and lunch

Moreish Food & Coffee is a cool cafe with a chic industrial vibe, serving Campos coffee, breakfast, lunch and homemade treats that will keep you coming back  

Cheeky Poke Bar is serving up delicious fresh locally sourced poke bowls and other Asian inspired delights from its home in the heart of Stones Corner village

Chili Coco Thai Kitchen and Café is a charming timber cabin-style eatery which is Stones Corner’s go-to for authentic and delicious Thai food that is also great value

Tucked away in a tiny shopping precinct off Logan Rd is this no-frills eatery serving traditional Vietnamese street food including noodle soups, banh mi, salads and rice paper rolls

This tiny hidden gem of a laneway cafe off Bower Lane is the go-to for well-brewed coffee, light eats and delicious sweet treats including decadent filled Doughluxe donuts

A Persian and Mediterranean restaurant tucked away on Cleveland Road, where you can enjoy a traditional taste of Iran, including signature dishes from the BBQ and grill 

The indie neighbourhood bookstore for 20 years has been promoting amazing Australian authors and stories and offering an extensive range of Australian fiction, non-fiction and children’s books.

Brisbane’s only dedicated Curve and Plus Size wedding and Formal destination can be found in Stones Corner, with a great selection of elegant dresses, suits and outfits for special occasions

JK Bridal’s exclusive and unique Styles of You Bridal Range lets you the designer of your own dream dress with their help, inspired by their exclusive range of unique pieces
