I hadn't been to this gorgeous little cafe in years! Came for lunch with a friend earlier this week and was thoroughly impressed. It has a 'dainty tea house' vibe with beautiful cottage style table settings with even old fashioned sugar lumps! The coffee was exceptional and the food was very impressive. The cakes also looked gorgeous (but I'm on... More

When visiting Brisbane you need to take into account that quite a lot of the suburban cafes are closed on a Monday. Not so Dandelion and Driftwood. The coffee is excellent and the choices for morning tea very nice. It's a little quirky to have laminated tasting notes for the coffee. I found it just a little bit over the... More

I was looking for a Devonshire Tea and so few places do them now. Dandelion and Driftwood feature on an internet search as having one of the best Devonshire Teas in Brisbane and they didn't disappoint. The scones were really great, not dry and served warmed up, just the way they should be. Plenty of raspberry jam accompanied the scones... More

When planning my trip to Brisbane to meet a family member from a very early international flight I checked out the reviews for a top place nearby for brunch. Dandelion and Driftwood in Hendra got great reviews including one calling it 'the best in Brisbane'. The outside certainly looked great with a few meters of red carpet adding a welcoming... More

We chose Dandelion and Driftwood because it was open until 4 pm on a Saturday. Staff were very friendly and smartly dressed. The menu was a bit overwhelming, just too much choice. Having said that after working our way through the many pages we independently chose the same item on the menu. Food was tasty if a little plain and... More

I love my coffee and this delivers on all levels. Take the Dandelion Blend of you like a thick bodied coffee, nice rounded flavours and creamy. Edelweiss is rich and dark with a hint of butterscotch. It's hard to stop at just one cup. Really nice place to have breakfast and a coffee before a day of meetings or grab... More
