The Reddy Kebabs Café on the Redcliffe foreshore should not work. Kebabs, breakfasts, fish and chips and coffee in the same place? I don't think so. BUT somehow it manages to pull it off, not just with the atmosphere but with the food too.
The staff and service here are fast and friendly with a good understanding of the very mixed menu. The Al Fresco tables are always clean and service manages to be good for the takeaway customers as well as those eating there, which is not an easy balance to strike.
At around $9 for the meal deal (large kebab and drink), I have found this to be a great lunch option for work when a sandwich just wont cut it, and have been having lunches off and on here for some time. The consistent quality and speed (nothing worse than waiting your entire lunch for your food to arrive) have kept me coming back.
They have also been offering the fish and chip options for a long time and although good if you are eating with others, there are other places with better seafood if that's what you are looking for (see my article on Bay Boats Take Away for the best seafood on the peninsula).
The breakfast menu and addition of Café to their name came in a little while ago, but I have been reticent to try it, not the least because I'm not usually there in the morning. This strip is EXTREMELY well serviced for café and breakfast options, so the initial question was why would they turn from what they do very well to be another option in an overcrowded market.
Driving past packed tables one morning finally peaked my interest and I gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised by the food and price. The coffee is strong and good and the Reddy eggs benedict with smoked salmon on toasted Ciabata bread was delish, and not overpriced at $13.50. The real standout is the waffle though at $8 plain (ice-cream, cream and syrup) or $2 for extras.
