This place doesn't seem like much at first sight - just your average park cafe.
The food, however, was definitely a cut above the average and was a real surprise.
The service was good and the staff friendly, and the prices were very reasonable. The views are also fantastic.

We had brought our picnic lunch but wanted to sit and enjoy the view a little longer so went over the the cafe for a nice cold drink and found it to be pretty well stocked.

Lovely spot for views over the Glasshouse Mountains and see right into Brisbane on a clear day. Food great and when you have finished eating you can stroll through the forrest and if quiet, see all sorts of creatures that live in the wild.Rangers are available to answer questions re wildlife or plants. Domestic pets not allowed.

I've visited this cafe several times whilst visiting friends nearby. I love it here. It has the most amazing views over the Glasshouse Mountains. The cafe itself is very rustic with a large log fire in the middle, and the sides are open so you can enjoy the view. Although they do have plastic blinds they pull down if the weather is bad. On my first visit i ordered "A Bloody Big Breakfast", (this is how its worded on the menu) and it certainly was big and excellent. The staff are very polite and friendly. Just behind the cafe is a path into the rainforest. Its well worth walking the trail as there's loads to see. I hope they never "modernise"the cafe as it would spoil it.You really must visit if your in the area. They open seven days a week from 08.30a.m. until 16.30p.m.
