Cafe on the Park is set in an idyllic location, across from Shorncliffe Pier and in a lovingly restored Queenslander. Their aim is to provide honest and home style food to their patrons, and they excel.
I have been going to Cafe on the Park for years, since my brothers attended St Patricks College right up the road, and it has become a firm family favourite. It is a wonderful place to go either before or after having a play at Lower Moora Park or a walk along the pier. It is right across the road from a playground and plenty of picnic tables.
The cafe serves dine in or take away options. You can get excellent takeaway fish and chips and then sit by the water or in the park across the street. Or you can dine in and enjoy the friendly service and breezy atmosphere. It is also a favourite for bike riders, so the next time you are on a family bike ride along the bay and would like a break, step into Cafe on the Park.
The food is a mix of fresh seafood, specialty salads and traditional cafe food. They have plenty of options for the kids and high chairs available. Everything is fresh, seasonal and the portion sizes are really generous. They also serve cakes, coffee and devonshire teas. While they don't have a play area for the kids, you can utilise their take away and eat across the street if you are worried you can't contain your little ones to a high chair.
If you are looking for your next function, Cafe on the Park hosts functions at night. Check out their packages here.
So the next time you are at Shorncliffe, stop into Cafe on the Park for a bite to eat and a coffee with your family.
