River La Vie

Tennyson

River La Vie is hidden gem of a child-friendly and dog-friendly cafe tucked away in Tennyson beside the Brisbane River. 

Located opposite Queensland Tennis Centre, this charming cafe serves all-day brunch in a lovely, al fresco dining area surrounded by lush gardens with glimpses of the river.

The mouth-watering menu boasts breakfast faves such as eggs your way on organic sourdough and crushed avo on rye, as well as more creative creations like pulled pork open omelettes, brûlée rice puddings and choc chip and salted caramel pancakes with strawberry chantilly cream and chocolate ice-cream in a cone.

Lunch-type fare consists of maple bacon cheeseburgers, rustic steak sandwiches, pulled pork bao buns and soy glazed chicken with charred corn salad.

A dedicated kids menu ranges from pancakes and maple syrup, and bacon and eggs, to ham and cheese toasties and steak sandwiches.

Well-brewed Supreme coffee is on pour, served along with tea, smoothies, milkshakes and fresh juices: Mr Pink, Mr Orange and Super Green. In addition, River La Vie is licensed with a concise wine list and beer.

Afterwards, take a leisurely stroll along the Brisbane River or let the kids have a play at fantastic Ken Fletcher Park.
