Shady Palms Bar & Cafe is just a stones throw away!

Nestled away within the sleepy streets of Coorparoo, lies a quiet little marvel. The Shady Palms Cafe & Bar is a fusion eatery, serving delicious treats “inspired by the food trucks of California, the street Moles of Mexico and the fresh flavours of South America”.

Upon entering the café, the first word that popped into my mind was “holiday”. The décor takes you on a whirlwind of tropical getaways, siestas, summer romance, and sunsets. You immediately want to explore the crazy assorted areas and kick back for a cocktail with friends.

Arriving in time for the breakfast, I was pleasantly surprised at the variety of diverse options on the menu. The featuring of items such as arepas, pulled pork tacos, and cod croquettes made for a refreshing take on breakfast cuisine. All of the food was cooked perfectly and beautifully served. The all day menu looked equally impressive, a mixture of share foods, tacos, sliders, subs…the list goes on. I absolutely can’t wait for my next visit to try the fondue fries!

My only disappointment was arriving for a meal so early in the day, as I didn’t feel it would be appropriate to order one of the delicious sounding cocktails. Open Wednesday through Sunday 8am till late, the venue is also available for event hire and catering. I would definitely recommend venturing to the Shady Palms Café & Bar, and I believe it is one of the restaurants to watch for 2013!
