Fresh is the operative word at Cafe63, wherever you find one of the outposts of the beloved Brisbane café-restaurant family. For one, fresh coffee supplied by Brisbane’s very own direct-buyer and roastery Di Bella is a chief drawcard, while the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are packed with the freshest ingredients. The icing on the cake is that Cafe63 offers a line in fresh flowers to buy by the bunch, and here in Sandgate opens up at the incredibly fresh hour of 5am every day of the week. Find Cafe63 Sandgate on Lagoon Street, positioned nice and fresh by the sea.
The types up and about in the Brisbane suburb of Sandgate at 5am are the types that thoroughly enjoy the classic Café63 juice bar selection – watermelon, carrot, pineapple and tropical fruit from the Queensland country – or frappes with motivating names like the Federer Frappe, Screw The Scrum, or Kick Off. Of course, the coffee is a premium brew and a major attraction, be it hot, short and black or long and iced. Keep it super healthy with breakfast options like the vegan avo mash with grilled tomatoes, wilted spinach, fruit salad and multigrain toast, or go the whole hog with the massive Endeavour – a stack of potato rosti, BBQ pork belly and poached eggs topped with hollandaise sauce and served with toast.
Cafe63 does a roaring trade in signature waffle stacks, with the Michael Schumacher coming out on top in our books, thanks to a simple winning combination of fresh strawberries, whipped cream and maple syrup. If you’re looking for a gluten-free lunchtime option, the GDR offers up your choice of grilled barramundi, salmon or NZ whiting with fries and seasonal vegetables, while the Istanbul burger is a vegetarian option layered with halloumi, green leaves, tomato, mashed avocado, a creamy parmesan dressing, fries and a half salad. Cafe63’s Sandgate café-restaurant on Lagoon Street is as seasonal as any other member of the family, pushing an autumn menu, for example, heaped with specials like the Red Delicious: roasted pork belly with apple sauce and gravy, rustic fries and seasonal vegetables.
I boked a group of 10 but 12 showed up. Another table was supplied to accommodate the extra people without a problem. The meals were colourful and varied and each person in the group expressed their pleasure on their meal. They were well presented and flavoursome with an ample amount. I especially liked the sweet and savoury options combined on the plate. I had the' Vancouver' - pancakes, bacon, yoghurt, raspberry fruit, strawberries and maple syrup. I asked for extra syrup after serving and was given an extra amount very willingly. The staff were friendly and very obliging with all our requests. We were very pleased with our breakfast gathering and will come again.
Great service and friendly staff. Lovely place to go for a weekend breakfast. The food was reasonably priced and the coffee is made to perfection. We will be going there again.
I really enjoyed the professional and friendly service. The coffee was lovely and fresh. And my selection from the menu for breakfast was excellent and I would purchase it again. Thank you for a fantastic breakfast experience
Friendly and vibrant atmosphere at Cafe 63 Sandgate. The staff were friendly and professional throughout my visit . The menu choices were abundant and the coffee was delicious Thankyou for a fantastic lunch.
We made a reservation for Mother's day and had a nice time. The staff were friendly a given it was such a busy day, we didn't have to wait too long for our meals to arrive. The food was delicious and generous portions. The only thing I was quite disappointed by was the use of plastic water bottles (complimentary) on the tables. I think a lot of people leave them on the table when they leave and then they get thrown out. Even if they were recycled it seems wasteful and refillable glass jugs/bottles are more environmentally ethical and kind. I was surprised my drink also came out with a plastic cup and two straws. It would be great if Cafe63 adopted are more ethical and environmentally friendly ethos into their business.
I booked a week out from my event only to be seated hidden behind the cash register table..the restaurant was only one quarter full of patrons so ample vacant tables with room for comfort. 7 enjoyed their meals .mine was below expected. Service was extremely slow. Have dined at several Café 63 venues and have been very happy. Not this time at Sandgate.
The service was lovely as was the food I always like their coffee. I booked a table on line which was a great way to this. The only criticism I have is they do not replenish the teaspoons in the basket on the table.
A pleasant dining experience with tasty food and great coffee. I like the extra little touches such as the free bottle of water on arrival and leaving and the complimentary biscuit with your coffee. Pleasant staff members that are happy to serve you.
The food was fantastic and plenty of it. The service was also fabulous. Would I eat there again,. HELL YEAH. I recommend this place just so much
Perfect as always! Great service, friendly & attentive staff & beautiful well priced food. We regularly go to several Cafe 63's & always excellent! Highly recommended.
