Pelican Cafe is the bayside's best kept secret, with an all-day breakfast/lunch menu and lovely views of Redland Bay and the Southern Moreton Bay islands of Macleay, Russell, Lamb and Karragarra.
Housed on the second story of the big, green shed at the end of the Esplanade, overlooking Weinam Creek, diners can sit inside the nautically-inspired space with plenty of timber or outside on the breezy deck.
Pop in for a hearty Pelican breakfast, including eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast or coffee and cake, from the selection of home-made daily cakes and slices.
Food is all made fresh on site with locally sourced produce where possible, including the delicious salads Besides Genovese coffee, there's a small selection of tea, milkshakes, juice and soft drinks.
Good to know - On Friday evenings from 3.30-6.30pm Pelican cafe is open for sunset fish and chips, serving locally caught fresh Straddie fish.
