Living on the Redcliffe Peninsula, we are spoilt for choices of places to eat out. During the week my husband and I decided to spoil ourselves and treat ourselves to coffee and breakfast close to home. A short drive down to Scarborough Beach found us outside Cafe 3 Eight Nine.
Di Bella coffee was on display on their outdoor umbrellas and this excited my taste buds as Di Bella coffee is one of my favourites, so I knew I was in for good coffee. Hopefully the food would also excite me and I was impressed with the menu, offering many mouth watering combinations of breakfast items. There was at least 3 different combinations of eggs benedict. My husband went with one of the classic choices of eggs benedict with the leg ham ($14,50). He also had a couple of added sides of hash browns (he is happy with any menu containing hash browns).
They offered gluten free bread option, vegetarian options and offered many extra 'sides' to build onto the main menu items which is good to have this choice.
Cafe 3 Eight Nine is open 7 days from 7am to 2.30pm. A quick look at the lunch menu showed promise of another trip this way. They also had lovely cakes, slices and sweets on offer as well for a nice morning or afternoon tea.
Parking is right outside on the street overlooking beautiful Moreton Bay and the relaxing Scarborough Beach. We couldn't have chosen a better day to dine here as it was a gorgeous Winter's day in Queensland. Taking time to soak in the lovely view, great coffee and yummy food was an enjoyable and affordable luxury.
I probably would suggest phoning for a table if you are heading up from Brisbane as it wouldn't take too many locals filling up the tables. You could always take away a hot coffee and take a stroll along the beach if that was more to your taste.
389 has been taken over by new management and it's not a patch on the old place. My recent coffee there was hugely disappointing. Hope it improves as it was one of the best places in the peninsula for coffee.
