This past weekend, we were blessed with perfect Queensland Winter weather, clear blue skies and warming sunshine. It was just the recipe to seek the outdoors for a place to eat. Lunchtime on Saturday, we ended up at the Lakeside Cafe in North Lakes after a short drive from home. I have driven past this cafe on the man made lake at North Lakes many times but had never stopped to check it out until now. Happy we did on this particular day.
When our meals finally arrived, we were quite pleased with our selection. My husband had chosen a club sandwich with fries ($9), my son had ordered the BLT with fries ($9) and I had picked the chicken, avocado and Swiss cheese melt on Turkish bread and had substituted the fries with a fresh garden salad. ($9.50)
The cafe also serves breakfast until 10.30 and has a selection of light meals as well as coffee and cakes for that in between bite to eat. The surrounding park lands is ideal for a stroll, play with the kids and pets or maybe even a picnic. On Saturday it was very busy with everyone in a relaxed mood enjoying the lovely weather.
Our only criticism on this particular day was that we had a little bit of a wait for our meals, but relaxing with the view we had, we didn't mind too much as we had lots to keep us occupied waiting. I would definitely make an excuse to come back for coffee or a bite to eat.
