Inbetween Ormiston and Capalaba, there is a small retirement village by the name of Prins Willem Alexander. It is primarily home to Dutch elderly, however it offers an amazing little cafe with delicate Dutch treats and desserts!
Bea's Cafe is located in the heart of the village where all funds made by the volunteers of the village goes to the hospital's facilities. Among the treats available, there are a few favourites that are a must to try in the Redlands. Double Dutch brownies or 'Koche's' as they're known are two layers of chocolate baked in the oven and sprinkled with icing sugar. This is a favourite of mine, being of Dutch heritage. However it is still a cafe in itself offering very reasonable prices on iced coffee/chocolates, cappuccinos and many more. There is also a small store around the back of Bea's Cafe which sells Dutch specialties in food.
This really is an amazing cafe. Mrs. Bea Van Der Geissen is my great grandmother, she was a dedicated worker in her shop, which is named after her and she is one of the strongest women I know.
