St. Shoebill is the latest addition to Ipswich's popular Top of Town dining precinct, providing expertly brewed coffee along with delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch fare.
Housed in one of the city's heritage buildings, the cafe has retained much of its historic charm with exposed bricks and high ceilings, while adding contemporary features such as polished concrete flooring and a white, tiled bar.
The all day menu boasts breakfast and brunch favourites, from Eggs Benedict and Shoebill Baked Eggs (free-range eggs, house-made tomato sauce and spicy chorizo), to Savoury Mince and Mushrooms on Toast - served with poached egg, sauteed spinach, thyme, watercress and truffle oil.
Lunch dishes (served between 11am-2pm) include gourmet wraps (vegetarian, beef or spicy grilled pork), wholesome pumpkin salad with poached egg, avocado, quinoa, feta, strawberry, tomato, mixed greens and honey lemon sauce, and a Shoebill Bulgogi bowl filled with fried egg, fresh veggies, rice and your choice of either grilled beef, spicy pork or chicken.
St. Shoebill is child-friendly with a kids menu consisting of almond croissants, bacon and egg on toast, waffle with bacon, or fried egg with maple whip and berries.
Coffee on pour is by ONA Coffee, served along with a range of specialty drinks including Byron Bay loose leaf teas, Prana chai and Mork hot chocolate, plus fresh pressed juices, milkshakes and smoothies.
