Shields Street Cafe

What's this antique truck doing in the cafe?
There are many reasons for taking a trip to Redcliffe visiting the beaches and parks, cafes, shops and galleries; fishing; walking or riding along the beach paths; or going to the popular Redcliffe Markets on a Sunday. Now, if you're at the Redcliffe Markets and you find that it gets a bit too busy for your liking, then you could treat yourself and take a short walk, heading in a northerly direction along Prince Edward Parade. Stroll along this beautiful tree-lined avenue until you get to Shields Street Cafe, which just happens to be on the corner of Shields Street and Prince Edward Parade.

This cafe was a 'work in progress' for a number of years, and before it was fully refurbished, the public were asked to come up with a name for the cafe. One suggestion was Cafe Never Never because it looked like it would never, never be finished. But as they say, "Rome, wasn't built in a day", and "all good things take time". That can be said of Shields Street Cafe, too.

These days Shields Street Cafe fits well into its surroundings and has become quite a popular stop for locals, visitors, cyclists and community groups to meet. Within the cafe, there are three separate dining areas. One has a view of the water, which is just a few meters away, and another has an antique truck - yes, a truck in the middle of it. All dining areas have interesting antiques and memorabilia - far too many to mention - which is a real feast for your eyes.

This is not a five star venue, but it is first rate when it comes to service. The staff all of them are warm, friendly and efficient and they all want you to enjoy your time spent at their cafe. And you know what? You actually do. And the really good news is: you can go there any day of the week for breakfast, lunch or tea.
