Diners develop a taste for bush flavours at cafe breakfast


Breakfast in a bush setting is proving popular with visitors to the Redland IndigiScapes Centre at Capalaba.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the IndigiScapes Cafe’s natural setting in the centre and its unique menu incorporating bush flavours had proved a winning combination when a weekend breakfast menu was released in January.

“The cafe has not only earned top reviews for its IndigiCake on sites such as TripAdvisor but is also proving to be a hit with diners posting on local social media sites,” Cr Williams said.

“Recently, a diner gave a glowing review on a Redlands Facebook page stating she was so impressed with the wonderful new larger cafe, and especially the addition of the breakfast menu.

“The diner also praised the great upgrades to tracks and picnic areas, saying it was a lovely place for all ages to enjoy.

“She is not alone in highlighting the centre’s attractions.

“The unique and totally refurbished IndigiScapes Centre is regularly featured on shows such as Queensland’s Great South-East and Creek to Coast.

“It plays an important education role by offering programs to help residents support the natural environment and learn more about green living, waterways, wildlife, pests and weeds in Redlands Coast.”

Division 7 Councillor Rowanne McKenzie said the centre catered for the whole family and the cafe’s new takeaway option, allowing guests to enjoy breakfast on the grounds, was likely to increase its popularity.

“After a breakfast coffee, lemon myrtle tea or wattle seed chai, keen gardeners or the merely curious can explore the centre’s native plants and landscapes or collect a new native seedling grown by volunteers in the centre’s nursery,” Cr McKenzie said.

“The centre also provides opportunities for children to look for water lizards, explore the adventure playground and visit the Discovery Centre.”

The IndigiScapes Centre and Cafe is located at 17 Runnymede Road, Capalaba.

It is open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 4pm at the weekend.
