A memorable dining experience is predominantly made up of three things – terrific food, great value and friendly service. These are qualities every eatery looks to attain, but Cruisers Alfresco at Portside Wharf aims to go above and beyond just satisfactory – it shoots for top marks. The family-owned riverside cafe pairs a menu of casual lunch and breakfast eats with a relaxed setting with views of the Brisbane skyline, setting itself as a must-try spot for the weekly brunch crowd and leisurely weekend catch-ups with friends. Cruisers Alfresco’s offering starts at breakfast, with the likes of sausage and eggs, eggs florentine, loaded potatoes, omelettes, bircher muesli and pancakes providing plenty to choose from, while brunch keeps the good times going with French toast and salmon eggs benedict. As the day progresses, the Cruisers kitchen mixes things up with marinated chicken skewers, quesadillas and salads before going all in on its lunch menu. Spicy lamb burgers, fettucine carbonara, rump steaks, salt-and-pepper calamari and pulled-pork toasties showcase the variety on offer.
