Pippy Fish Cafe
In the heart of Thorneside sits what might be one of Brisbane’s most underrated seafood-centric eateries. Pippy Fish Cafe is one part neighbourhood fish and chipper, and one part elevated noshery, boasting a slick contemporary fit-out and a menu loaded with locally sourced seafood. Guests can sit down for a feed featuring the likes of trout pate served with dill creme fraiche, lobster tail brioche roll, steamed black mussels with white wine, tuna tataki with summer salad and two kinds of seafood platters – one hot and one cold. The takeaway spread is just as special, headlined by its signature Seafood Cornetto – a cardboard cone filled to bursting point with crumbed fish, hand-cut chips, calamari, scallops and battered prawns – as well as prawns by the kilo, battered or crumbed fish, crispy potato skins and croquettes. A fresh seafood cabinet is loaded with fresh lobster, crabs, oysters and more – all of which are available to take and prepare at home. On the beverage front, Pippy Fish Cafe stocks a sensational selection of Australian wines and craft beers from cutting-edge brewers such as Hop Nation Brewing Co., Bright Brewery, Boatrocker Brewers & Distillers and Otherside Brewing.
