Located in the 2.5ha parkland on the banks of the new Northshore Hamilton development, the Northshore Harbour cafe is fast becoming a popular place to enjoy a coffee and cake, a business lunch, or a lazy weekend breakfast by the water.
Came for breakfast on Wednesday morning but found menu reduced significantly.
Very quiet with no back ground music which gave it no atmosphere.
Food and Coffee great as usual but overall was not a good as our last visit.
Asked for table near window about 10 days earlier. Instead table in back corner next to another large group. Tables near windows vacant as was not busy. Very noisy very two large groups near each other.
Female staff very pleasant but male kept bringing drinks and food to us which were for other table. Was told but still left meal. Later taken to other table.
Staff friendly, food good but left our empty plates way too long before clearing.
Wonderful space for our larvae gathering celebrating a special birthday!! Thank you for all your help in setting up the area to accomodate us all ...
Great location. Food and service are always good.
Fabulous family friendly dining experience.
Food and location were awesome. Next time I would book inside the restaurant as it was a little hot outside. I had been worried that we wouldn't have a view from inside but the view was excellent from there.
Food was tasty but service was slow. Also staff didn't listen to instructions when we ordered so things didn't get served as ordered. Overall our experience was okay but owners need to pay more attend to service, perhaps employ more experienced wait staff.
We love this place usually but this visit was terrible... service was slow and parts of order forgotten. We got our drinks before we even got menus to order food, the bacon was way over cooked/ almost burnt and drowning in oil/ fat on the plate.
Our order wasn't correct when it was deliveted, but the server immediately offered to rectify the error.
The location is lovely, and very convenient for a meeting place for friends from north & south of the river. Heaps of free parking.
Food was great, but service was poor. No one even bothered to give us a menu. Had to go and ask for them. Staff just did the bare minimum in terms of service. A shame as the food was great.
Splendid location. Poached eggs were overcooked and the vinegar used I assume to set the eggs, was overpowering. Scrambled eggs were more like an overcooked, dry, flat omelette all pushed together. Sausages very dry. Hope the lunches are better. No tea on the menu under Tea / Coffee. Cannot fault the location. Otherwise wouldn't return. Would not recommend the breakfast. Average coffee.
River views are pleasant and would make a lovely stop for those cruising the river on the citycats. Only problems were the failure to put the meat into the Massaman curry that only had rubbery potato and very little flavour. Dish taken away and returned with a pile of meat and another pile of rubbery potato on top of the previously served curry without even mixing into curry sauce. Failure to offer coffee after we finished dinner. Closes at 2.30 and stools were being packed up blocking our view by 2pm. Otherwise everything else was ok.
Wonderful riverside café - friendly and tasty food
Lovely staff and the most amazing breakfast. Plus it’s air conditioned.
Great location and good food in a relaxing atmosphere.
A delightful venue for a relaxed lunch. Very busy on a Sunday so suggest booking. Enjoyed the food and appreciated the patience of our waitress 98 women chatting rather than consulting the menu and ordering!!) Very enjoyable venue. Hopeful we shall return sooner rather than later.
I love this place and have been there for a number of lunches.
Great location and food. Lovely family get together.
Fantastic location with great view of the river. Good parking options and near City Cat ferry terminal. Small nearby beach and playground for kids. Great tasting food, well presented and good portions. Service was a little slow due to crowds, so would have helped with another one or two wait staff during busy periods. Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall very good restaurant and would recommend it to others.
Had the Calamari- fantastic dish and great service.
Great cafe the food and service was great!! We will be back!!!
Poached eggs were like hard boiled eggs
Very disappointed especially for the cist
Delicious food at a reasonable price, friendly and helpful staff, lovely atmosphere, easy parking and a great location for meeting up when a large group is coming from every direction.
A very amenable atmosphere in peaceful quiet surroundings.
Great service and great value for money; comfortable decor and clean facilities.
Lovely location, we had a beautiful breakfast here and will be back to try the lunch menu in the holidays!
I would recommend this cafe to friends and family. We had a group of 14 and all said they were very happy with their meals. Choice was very good - caters for all. Staff friendly. Looking over the river watching the City Cats and boats going up and down the river is peaceful. Cool breezes coming off the water. Parking is excellent.
Thanks Denyse! We are glad you and your family enjoyed the food and the lovely location :) Come again soon!
My recommendation is only valid if the air conditioning is either fixed or switched on. A good meal Wass spoiled by a hot room.
Hi Phil! We are very sorry that the airconditioning was being repaired during your visit! The repairs are now complete in time for a hot summer. We hope you come back for a refreshing lemonaid and lunch when you can enjoy the cool air! :)
The venue was a delight with the novelty of a passing passenger ship as well!! The food delicious...very much recommend the mixed platter! It’s a wonderful place to while away an afternoon with fine food and friends!
Thanks Mon! We love watching the ships go by and serving our lovely customers! We are the luckiest cafe in Brisbane.
Beautiful location with friendly staff and a wonderful wine list & food.
This restaurant is delightful. Gorgeous food and lovely views.looking forward to going back.
A very pleasant lunch venue with visiting friends. Great service, food and location. I’ll be back!
Have visited Northshore Harbour several times, always enjoy meeting family and friends at this great location.
A lovely spot for lunch.
It has it all. A great view of the river, friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.
The pumpkin salad topped with crispy sweet potato flakes was so good I asked for the recipe!
I love the Northshore Harbour Cafe. The view, the food, the service - it has it all
Nice venue with views of the river. Menu was really lovely and a little different. Would definitely recommend and would go again. Very easy to book too.
Good service and tasty food. Would recommend Northshore Harbour to a friend.
A lovely location to catch up with friends and family. A perfect day to ride the ferry to our destination.
Will be back to view the city lights at night!
Booked for 23 people but the booking was not set up on arrival as one of the staff didn't have the password to log into the booking system. Had asked for an outdoor setting, was put inside in front of the counter so not the best ambiance. Took an hour to get drinks out. Asked twice for them to take meal orders. Staff had no idea who had ordered what. Was our third team visit, unlikely to go back.
