Really enjoyed our lunch here on the weekend, sharing a charcuterie platter and calamari along with a glasses of Riverina bubbles. The view and ambience plus the lovely staff made it really enjoyable.

Decided on a whim to catch the City Cat to Northshore Hamilton on Saturday 4 March to try out the café there. We arrived there after 1.00pm. Yes - it was busy. No - we didn't have a booking. The "head" wait person pointed to seats at the front window, and said they would be with us shortly. We were... More

I had studied all the reviews for this cafe before coming because I was entertaining older relatives who were visiting for the day off a cruise ship (docked in the Port of Brisbane). I needed a venue close to the Port that served good food, by the river and open for longer than noon-2.30pm. This cafe nailed it. Just perfect.... More

I love this place. I regularly catch up here with friends for lunch overlooking the river. Amazing view with beautiful breezes. We had a waitress named Inés on Tuesday and she was delightfully friendly and attentive. We lingered for hours chatting and catching up over lunch and she happily offered coffees and made sure we were ok and didn't rush... More

Love Northshore Harbour. Frequently visited at different days and at different times and each experience has had common elements - great staff, great food, great service. The cafe is bright and light, clean and tidy and looks fresh. Good for time with a special friend, to a group catching up. Being right beside the lower reach of the Brisbane River... More

Ines just gave me the best advice that someone could give me to get with my Hash cakes, I am glad that she was my waitress on sunday morning. This is such a lovely place, I had the chance to go with my puppy and let him play on the beach, 100% recommended.
