The view of Brisbane from the outside tables makes a good stop to discuss the impressive scenery. The range of refreshments is limited and queuing for service and a table may put you off but in the end you will appreciate the stop.

Perched on the cliffs at Kangaroo Point with the sight of our wonderful river below and the city across the river, this is one of the best venues to show off how beautiful Brisbane city is. We haven't been back for quite a while and decided to have brunch there on Easter Monday as our local place wasn't open. Whilst... More

We had lunch at The Cliffs Cafe on Easter Monday. We had previously tried the cafe some years ago but we were not impressed. Friends had assured us the cafe had improved and the food was good. Sadly, not the case - we ordered the Crispy Chicken and a Cheeseburger - both very disappointing. Perhaps the breakfasts are better but... More

Had breakfast here with a colleague whilst on a work trip in March. Very nice staff and atmosphere, great food and even better coffee. If you are passing this way stop in and let the children spot the lizards basking in the sun.

Nice cafe but the attraction is one of the best views of Brisbane while you eat. Worth following with a walk along the top of the cliffs.

After walking around Kangaroo Point and climbing the narrow stairs up to the top, I'd worked up a thirst and I needed to rest my legs. So I was very glad when I saw this place perched at the top of the cliffs. I was about to order a regular orange juice when I spotted the freshly made drinks menu,... More

Gets two stars for views but that's it. Extremely overpriced for what you get. Bacon and eggs was a small slice of toast with two small poached eggs and two rashers of bacon. I got a madam Roche which was meant to be French toast but was just two stale slices of bread and I'm sorry but it tasted disgusting.... More

A favourite place to visit for a snack lunch with a great view of the Brisbane river and the CBD. Chicken Caesar salads were very tasty and generous and the café was busy as indeed it always is. We have been here many times and cannot get enough of the view and the food.
