Bambu Café is a boutique eatery located amidst the tropical landscaped gardens of The Complete Garden nursery on Bellflower Road, Sippy Downs.

But don't be fooled, this isn't your typical 'pre-packaged sandwich and instant coffee' nursery café. Bambu delivers an exceptional breakfast, lunch and coffee and cake menu seven days a week.

Although the café's main patronage comes from people visiting the adjacent nursery, the café offers enough delicious and value-for-money menu options to draw people into the nursery for the food alone.

Our latest visit was during the week, so it was perceptibly quieter than previous visits we've had on a Saturday or Sunday. The weather was dismal, but fortunately there was adequate cover in the outdoor seating area to provide a dry sanctuary, and a warm Chai Latte soon cured whatever misgivings we had held about the grey skies. A large Chai Latte cost us $4.50, and was complemented with a home baked Anzac Biscuit, $3, that was generous enough to share between two if you felt so inclined.

The service staff were friendly, and the Latte had reached our table before we'd even had time to open the cover of our trashy gossip magazine and read the latest celebrity scandal – yes, they have a stack of magazines on hand for your enjoyment too.
The landscaping and décor of Bambu provides a serene dining environment. The café overlooks a manmade waterfall and fountain feature. The beauty of this outlook is probably one of the reasons why Bambu attracts a lot of private function bookings as well. Indoor and outdoor seating options are available, and it is pram and wheelchair-friendly.

The menu at Bambu changes daily, and bright blackboards display the day's fresh creations. During previous visits we've enjoyed Fish and Chips with a mixed leaf salad and citrus mayonnaise dressing, and Thai Beef Salad served in a baked filo basket. Bambu offers a menu that changes daily, which provides variety and ensures freshness.

The café is open from 8:30am to 3:00pm every day. No bookings are required, but you may reserve a table if you wish to avoid disappointment. For those wanting to enjoy a beverage with your lunch, you'll be pleased to hear the venue is also licensed.
