Ready for a Pitstop?
Why go up to Mt Mee? It is just over an hour from Brisbane, high up in the D'Aguilar Range but well worth the drive to (a) enjoy the brilliant view back to Brisbane and surrounds from Pitstop, (b) enjoy the great coffee and food at the café and (c) explore the things motoring on the walls and little shop. Pitstop is the haunt of many who like one or all of the above.
If you like motor cycles, you are bound to see quite a few in the car park, maybe even vintage vehicles.
The Pitstop Café and Craft Shop is at 2070 Mt Mee Road, on the edge of a cliff with views out over the Mt Pleasant Valley, Dayboro and the North Pine Dam and all the way to Brisbane. On a very clear day, you can see some of the islands in Moreton Bay.
The view is certainly amazing. I can sit and wonder at the view, feeling like I am on top of the world. You can witness many birds, some just gliding along above the valley. I hope the photos do justice to it. It reminds me of Barbra Streisand singingOn a clear day, you can see forever.
The menu has plenty to offer for meals or snacks at any time of the day – and the servings are very generous. Check the opening hours on Facebook. Currently Pitstop is open Fridays 9 am - 3 pm, Saturdays 8 am - 4 pm, and Sunday 8 am - 4pm and Public Holidays. Check their Facebook page for up-to-date details.
There is a small craft shop with some great items made by local artists, and the walls are covered in a range of motoring "art".
There's plenty of seating inside the café and outside there is more undercover. Order your food in the café, and it will be brought to your table.
