The Park Social
The Park Social is a hidden gem of a cafe found tucked away in an industrial estate in Redland Bay serving top-class coffee roasted in-house, along with delicious breakfast and lunch fare.
Surrounded by beautiful bushland, this child-friendly, dog-friendly cafe offers indoor dining and open air dining, with a little play corner for kids inside.
The all-day menu boasts breakfast faves from smashed avo on sourdough with silky Persian feta, crunchy house-made spiced dukkha and beetroot relish, to breaky rolls (lightly toasted milk buns with thick cut bacon, American cheese, fried egg and house-made onion jam) and a bountiful breakfast plate - toasted Turkish topped with avocado salsa, perfectly poached eggs, house-made dukkha, butter thyme mushroom and golden, grilled haloumi.
Sweet tooths will want to tuck into delectable donut french toast served with vanilla bean ice-cream, drizzled with salted caramel sauce and topped with pistachio crumble.
Lunch options include a haloumi and buttered thyme mushroom burger, 12-hour slow-cooked pulled pork burger, and loaded hot dogs such as the Dog Father - juicy bratwurst, liquid American cheese, slow-cooked pulled pork, fried onion, roasted peppers and a pickle. Otherwise, there's Chef's special Reuben sandwich loaded with silverside, house-made sauerkraut, mustard and cheese, and a poke bowl of crispy fried karaage chicken with avocado, salted edamame, cucumber, wild rice, radish, siracha mayo and house-made kimchi.
Besides coffee, there's cold brew, iced berry tea, yummy milkshakes (salted caramel pretzel, Oreo cheesecake) and scrumptious smoothies: Berry Nice, Peanut Buttercup and Fanana Banana.
