Wood-firing pizzas since 2012

When the Regatta Hotel first re-opened a few months ago, their cafe was so busy it was difficult to get even a take-away coffee. The post-opening hubbub has died down now however, and it is possible to get a table on a Sunday morning without having to loiter at the bar for hours trying not to look like an alcoholic. Now that it is quieter (though still popular), the service has also improved immensely and the staff look a lot less frazzled and vacant than they did to begin with when they were run off their feet by hordes of hungry cyclists, families and brunching couples.

I've become a bit of a regular due to their amazing wood-fired pizzas which I would go so far as to say are the best on Brisbane's west side (I can't vouch for the other three sides but if there is better pizza anywhere in the city I'll eat my weight in pepperoni) and everyone I have convinced to go in and try them has avidly agreed with me. That isn't all, however. The cafe has also won me over with their oh-so-cute trio of chips-wedges, chips and sweet-potato chips that come in their own little fry baskets (everyone with me now say 'awww'), their pear, rhubarb and ricotta pancakes for breakfast and their large, triple shot coffees that give me a giant buzz on my way to UQ and come complete with a cookie.

Whether you sit on the balcony, out on the terrace in the sun, or inside the bar on the couch-stools (for lack of a better name), the cafe has a very relaxing atmosphere despite the traffic whizzing past on Coronation drive. All in all, it's a perfect spot to enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch or even a late afternoon feed.
