Why we love it: Relaxed vibe, wonderful food and fantastic views!
Tell me more: There’s nothing better here in Queensland to be relaxing by the beach. Combine that with a lovely meal and drink and you’ve got yourself a winning formula! And that’s just what you’ll get at Cabana Bar + Kitchen + Garden in Redcliffe with its fantastic relaxed and tropical vibe. Part of the Mon Komo Hotel, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a long lunch or an afternoon drink (or breakfast, if you like) while looking out over Moreton Bay. But it’s not just the atmosphere that makes Cabana Bar special – the meals are wonderful as well! From traditional and super tasty pub-style or perhaps something a little more fancy, or even a special plate to share, you’ll find the perfect meal for your mood here! They regularly host live music and DJs that complement the mood, and add to that a huge range of drinks - including a fantastic choice of cocktails that will definitely put you in holiday mode (be sure to try their Fairy Floss Martini – so good!), Cabana Bar is one hard place to leave! Check it out now!

Why we love it: Beautiful breakfasts in a lovely family-friendly setting and fantastic views!
Tell me more: If you like to enjoy your breakfast (and all day, if you like!) with a view, then Chapter IV Café might be the place for you! Situated in the leafy and hilly suburb of Paddington, this lovely café, housed in a traditional Queenslander-style store, is a fantastic place to dine! The street-level entry quickly disappears as you work your way to the back deck balcony which boasts fantastic views of the city inner city suburbs!
But don’t be fooled into thinking that Chapter IV is all about the view – the real reason that people love it here is the fantastic food and service. Choose from a range of all-day breakfasts – from a light starter to the very satisfying big breakfast – there’s something here for all tastes! A typical range and of coffee, teas and chai and more complements the breakfast and are superbly presented and taste great! The lunch and dessert menus again look fantastic and Chapter IV is licensed, too!
Chapter IV is a wonderful and welcoming café in a lovely part of Brisbane and it’s a great place for families – there’s even a children’s play area! Open every day from 7:00am to 2:30 pm.

What's it all about: Healthy (and very yummy!) Mexican fast food!
Tell me more: We love Mexican food and here in Brisbane we have some great choices for yummy and fresh Mexican flavours! And it's an exciting time for lovers of Mexican food lovers at the moment as Zambrero has just released a yummy new flavour! Their existing beef has been switched for a new Barbacoa Beef - slow cooked with Chipotle for 18 hours and it just melts in your mouth. So yummy! You can get this and many more flavours in burritos, tacos, nachos or even just a plate, combined with some fresh salad. They also have a fantastic program of 'Plate for Plate' where for every burrito or bowl sold, a meal is donated to someone in need. Such a great idea! Like Zambrero states, it's great food and a great cause all rolled into one!
