Brisbane's best cafe with a view?
Perched overlooking the Brisbane River The Cliffs Cafe is a lovely spot for a meal with a view. Floating on the edge of Kangaroo Point Cliffs the cafe offers panoramic views of Brisbane's city skyline with the yachts moored alongside the City Botanical Gardens. The television towers atop Mt Coot-ha can be seen in the distance.

The breakfast menu offers dishes including a hot smoked salmon and dill risotto cake with spinach and poached egg. If you have a hearty appetite you could try the big breakfast of bacon, eggs, Barossa Valley pork and fennel sausage. For a good taste test the savoury mince with poached egg, melted vintage cheddar toastie on multigrain bread with tangy tomato relish may well fit the bill. The prices are around the $20 mark with more simpler breakfast fare available around $10.

Lunch eat treats feature the appropriately named Cliffs beefburger; beer battered fish & chips or try a pulled pork sandwich with pickled carrot, coriander, chilli and served with aioli and chips. Snacks include kale and chickpea falafel salad with humus, roasted beetroot, salad greens and garlic yoghurt, perfect for the vegetarian. All main meals are under $20.

Children are catered for with a kids menu of chicken, Lochie's vegetarian lasagne and Hannah's ham and cheese jaffles, all served with salad and chips. The nearby park spaces will keep the children happy with plenty of space for running around. A short stroll down (thank goodness!) the cliff steps is the river walkway that leads to the Riverlife Adventure Centre.
