Friendly staff; Efficient service; Very Reasonable Prices
Rafferty's Cafe is located in the suburb of Cleveland, on Brisbane's beautiful bayside - being just 25 kilometres south-east of Brisbane's central business district, Cleveland is a great destination for those looking for a day trip that is not too far from home. More specifically, Rafferty's Cafe is located at Cleveland Town Square (directly under the sign actually!), with plenty of parking available in adjacent streets.
Being in a location with such close proximity to the water, Rafferty's Cafe provides customers with a relaxing ambience, coupled with friendly and helpful staff and fast service to boot! There is both indoor and outdoor seating available at Rafferty's Cafe, with both options being equally good choices. Sit down and enjoy a cuppa (or two) at this warm and inviting cafe, or grab a coffee to go if you're on the run - you'll be impressed by how quickly the staff at Rafferty's Cafe will be able to get your order completed!

Rafferty's Cafe has a separate menu for breakfast and lunch, with breakfast being served all day - this is perfect for those who want to sleep in yet still want to eat breakfast, the most important meal of the day. There is so much to choose from here at Rafferty's Cafe, with the breakfast menu being two pages long and the lunch menu being an impressive four - you're literally spoiled for choice here. Breakfast items start at just $3.90 (for Thick Sliced Toast or Cinnamon Toast), with the most expensive item being $15.90 (for the Big Breakfast) - one of the cheapest Big Breakfasts around! Rafferty's Cafe's lunch menu is conveniently categorised into multiple sections to help customers navigate through this extensive menu - 'Something Light', 'Salads', 'Pasta', 'Burgers & Sandwiches', 'Noodles & Rice', 'Vegetarian', and 'Others'. Both the breakfast and lunch menus have a separate section for the little ones - no one is left out here at Rafferty's!
My friend and I both opted for the Big Breakfast (2 eggs with sausage, bacon, tomato, mushroom, hash browns and thick white toast), as the price was irresistible - most Big Breakfasts cost around $20, so at $15.90 here at Rafferty's Cafe, you're really getting your money's worth. Rafferty's Cafe was able to accommodate to my dietary requirements of preparing the eggs without the yolk, for which I am very grateful for - thank you!

Rafferty's Cafe has a wide range of drinks available, including Vittoria Coffee, tea (served in a pot for one), iced drinks, milkshakes, thickshakes, and smoothies, in addition to soft drinks, iced teas and juices that can be found in the drinks fridge. With such a wide selection of drinks available, there will be something for everyone that is appropriate for the weather conditions that come with each season!
Rafferty's Cafe is very much dog-friendly provided that customers opt for the outdoor seating in place of sitting indoors. They will also kindly provide a water bowl for your dogs upon request, to ensure your dog stays hydrated during your meal and so that your dog doesn't miss out on the dining experience!
