Stop drooling and just do it - lick that plate
Cafe 63 is a fresh modern cafe located in a leafy part of Yeronga opposite a lovely park. The menu is extensive with original and changing seasonal options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and coffee. It is also unexpected. After all, where else can you get slow cooked lamb shoulder and pork belly served with eggs and toast for breakfast? Not everywhere, that's for sure.

I enjoyed a scrumptious lunch 'Romney Marsh' which incorporated slow cooked lamb shoulder, rustic fries, grilled mushrooms and seasonal vegetables. The lamb was tender and full of flavour. Best of all, slow cooked lamb shoulder was all over the menu. You can get it in a pita bread with yoghurt or on a burger with eggplant and tomato relish or served with a salad and macadamia nuts.

Of course, I was completely full after the lamb and but I couldn't let a good friend order a dessert alone. That just wouldn't be fair to either of us. I had the 'Brunswick 9', a delightful sticky date pudding smothered with hot caramel sauce, garnished with a strawberry and accompanied by ice cream. A little sinful perhaps, but it was absolutely delicious. I just stopped short of licking the plate clean.

My friend couldn't resist the 'Coronation 9' a chocolate pudding slathered with chocolate sauce and served with vanilla ice-cream and strawberry. It looked scrumptious and I will be ordering it next time. Yes, there will certainly be a next time. I loved the al fresco dining, friendly efficient staff, interesting menu, tasty food and scenic location. Whether you want a full meal or just dessert and coffee, this place will deliver with a view.

Finally, for all those who loathe going to a café and then having to take a cross-country hike to get to a toilet after all those drinks – I have good news. There is a nice clean toilet at Cafe 63 Yeronga. Enjoy.

PS: Please comment on whether I should have licked the plate or not and dob in a dish that made you do it.
