Down the garden path the only clue that a café is secreted behind the bushes is a small sign and crimson parasol. Through the opening, another path leads to a cute turquoise kiosk on the edge of the lagoon.
There are plenty of seating options including a shaded deck with Acapulco chairs overlooking a children’s play area, and a row of pergolas all with water views, perfect for enjoying a picnic in Redland.
Coffee on pour is a boutique blend roasted locally by Grassroots Espresso. It goes down a treat with LeToria’s selection of sweet and savoury eats like baked lemon tarts, mini cheesecakes and savoury muffins.
Need to know – The café is only open on weekends.
*Devonshire tea sittings MUST be pre-booked (they fill up quickly) and weekend picnic hampers ordered and paid for by Friday afternoon.
