The cafe on Redcliffe's main esplanade is open all day for in-house dining and also welcomes pooches with a special menu of puppyccinos, scrambled eggs and doggie ice-cream.
Sea Salt and Vine is Scarborough’s hidden gem – a breezy seafront café under the fig trees tucked away inside the Scarborough Holiday Village.
You can enjoy a seafood platter for 2 overlooking Scarborough Boat Harbour from this waterfront restaurant, or some traditional teppanyaki from their Teppanyaki dining room. Bookings essential
Tide on the Jetty is a cafe wine bar in prime position overlooking the Manly Marina on the William Gunn Jetty
The rustic Cleveland Lighthouse Cafe Bar (circa 1936) is the budget part of a quirky clique of eateries.
3 eight nine is a funky chic little cafe on the beach front shopping village of Scarborough that makes a great drop in
Baaia cafe is a little gem of a waterfront cafe in an old Sandgate store, with stunning views across Moreton Bay
Bringing a touch of class to the historical Masonic Lodge perched on Sandgate's cliff top is this splendid cafe with its own tiny in-house homewares and giftshop.
