This is a nice place with good food, attentive friendly staff and a brilliant aspect overlooking the Brisbane River. Great way to start the day and very close to the Point Hotel.

Amazing views, extremely clean and very friendly staff. I always order a double extra hot coffee but unfortunately the coffee here was only luke warm. 3 of us ordered coffees and all coffees were bordering on cool. Disappointing but the coffee flavour was good

Had breakfast here with a colleague whilst on a work trip in March. Very nice staff and atmosphere, great food and even better coffee. If you are passing this way stop in and let the children spot the lizards basking in the sun.
