Good food, good coffee and a lovely setting
The Springwood Park area has been crying out for a quality cafe for some time, but the wait is now over with the arrival of Cafe 63. Tucked away in leafy surrounds on Cinderella Drive, the Springwood branch of this growing Brisbane cafe chain combines a relaxing setting with an extensive breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.
But before we talk about the food, let's talk about the location. The old Springwood Bowls Club used to sit on this site, but has been replaced recently by an aged care facility and the Springwood Park Boardwalk. Cafe 63 sits right on the boardwalk, with an expansive outdoor deck offering plenty of shaded tables.
There's more seating and a slick black-and-white colour scheme inside, but the deck is the place to be. If you can, grab a table outside so you can enjoy the cooling breeze and the views of the tall trees and grassy space of Springwood Park next door. It's also dog-friendly outside, so feel free to bring your pooch along as well.
The triple-decker Club Sandwich ($15) will have you licking your lips at lunch, and the Southern Cross chicken schnitzel burger ($16) promises a hearty dinner. Then there's the sweets menu with treats like scones, brownies and cakes, and sides like waffle fries are available if you're just looking for a quick snack. The cafe is licensed if you're after an adult beverage, while there's also a range of frappes, shakes, juices and smoothies on offer.
So next time you're treating the kids to some playtime in Springwood Park, treat yourself to a little something at Cafe 63. It's also open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, and is a very welcome addition to the Springwood cafe scene.
