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.
Good quality food most of the time my guests food was excellent but mine even after replacement was burnt
Perfect as always! Great service, friendly & attentive staff & beautiful well priced food. We regularly go to several Cafe 63's & always excellent! Highly recommended.
My friends and I had a wonder lunch. Staff were lovely and friendly. Food was fantastic. They have a flower stand also which is good for those special occasions.
The food was tasty and served quickly. The atmosphere in the restaurant was good. The choices on the menus were extensive and to suit all tastes
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.
Lovely setting and location - a few language difficulties when placing orders - food excellent and service very good. Have been before and will come again for sure!
Lovely place, very attentive staff , coffee is excellent , lovely position near the lake , cheesecake was also very tasty , online booking great idea
Lovely lunch, venue and service. The pork belly was just a shade dry for my liking but apart from that everything was great! Thanks again!
Breakfast meal nice. Coffee needed a bit more punch for my liking. Staff could be more attentive to the tables if offering this service, waited a good while to be served.
Staff appeared flustered, busy Saturday breakfast. Coffee machines in the way of customers - turn them 180 degrees. Service, food great. Good luck for future.
