Enjoy the beachy vibe of Seashells Cafe

Relax on the deck at Seashells Cafe

Years ago, when I first started visiting Stradbroke Island, I would never have dreamt that there would be a place like Seashells Cafe in the quiet little fishing township of Amity Point.

It was a nice surprise, therefore, to discover this beachy cafe when I returned a couple of years ago. Situated in what would be the main street of Amity Point, Seashells Cafe is nestled behind tropical gardens and has a great outdoor seating area that has a relaxed, beachy vibe.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner some nights, the menu is good and prices reasonable, considering there's very little competition for your dining dollar in this part of Straddie. Sitting on the deck and sipping a coffee or enjoying a Devonshire tea (for just $5.50!) is a pleasant way to ease into the day.

Not too sure about the octopus!

Kids are welcome here and a large fish tank situated right in the middle of the restaurant was providing plenty of entertainment for the young and not-so-young alike when we dined here recently. On this occasion I enjoyed beautiful fresh, sweet, butterflied whiting and my other half devoured two generous pieces of Spanish Mackerel. Both meals were served with salad and chips. Main meal serving sizes put a stop to us having room for dessert but there's always next time! On another occasion I ordered the seafood chowder, which was delicious although I could have done without the inclusion of baby octopus!

If you're looking for a spot to relax and refuel and want to escape the hustle and bustle of Point Lookout, why not venture into Amity Point and give Seashells Cafe a try.

Entertainment for big kids and little kids alike!

A couple of things to note: Aeroguard or a similar product is a must and so is making a booking. This may look like a sleepy little village - and it can be - but the cafe was packed for Saturday night dinner. It's also a good idea to phone and check that they will be open when you're thinking of visiting as hours change depending on the season. Seashells Cafe is sometimes booked for weddings and is closed to the public on these occasions.
