Pause Restaurant


Pause Restaurant provides the perfect foodie excuse to head to Samford Valley and take some time out in the fresh country air.

Here's a unique place to stop and enjoy an aperitivo on the sunset deck, pizza in the beer garden or a delicious Italian dinner, and, on Sundays, a long lunch.

Pause Cafe & Bar Samford

The Italian restaurant is open evenings from Wednesday to Sunday for a more formal dinner (as well as lunch Friday to Sunday) or, for something casual you can enjoy a gourmet wood-fired pizza from 12pm Wednesday to Sunday in the beer garden.

Pause Cafe & Bar Samford

The dinner menu at Pause Restaurant is filled with seasonal, locally sourced produce with dishes such as mixed seafood arancini with squid ink crumb and black aioli; long braised lamb in thyme, olives and zucchini on fresh artisan spaghetti; or grilled gold band snapper with beetroot mash and lemon grilled greens.

Pause Cafe & Bar Samford

A range of Ocean View craft beers, local and international wines, and an extensive range of cocktails are available at Pause's fully licensed bar.
