We recently visited City View Cafe at Optus Stadium for breakfast before we went for a walk over the bridge and along the river. The Cafe is located on the riverside of the stadium at the top of the stairs near gate D, but don’t let the stairs put you off there is a lift if you have a pram or bikes/scooter with you.

The cafe is bright and roomy with space between tables for a pram. All the seats offer views of the river, there are some larger tables available as well as small tables for two.

We chose a table at the window so we could enjoy the views. By chance, it was right near the kids’ corner. This consisted of a few small tables and chairs and a cabinet set up with pencils and different colouring sheets. Our daughter spotted this and was soon colouring in a picture while we waited for the rest of our table.

The breakfast menu is available until 12 noon and the lunch menu from 10am. There is a small kids menu available on the lunch menu. As well as the menu there is a range of muffins and savoury bagels, croissants and rolls at the front counter. You order and pay at the front counter. There is a water station available with cold water and plenty of glasses.

We ordered our daughter the eggs and bacon off the breakfast menu which came with two eggs and a generous serve of bacon. For kids with a smaller appetite, you could order just one egg. I enjoyed the avocado smash which I really enjoyed. The service is friendly and the coffee and food were fresh and tasty.

Toilets are located at the front of the restaurant and have a changing table available. There are also a few high chairs in the cafe. Reservations can be made and on event days the cafe may not be open to the public.

The cafe is well located for a coffee or a bite to eat before or after a play in the different playgrounds available in the area. We had taken our daughters scooter and took a walk across Matagarup bridge and along the river after breakfast. Before going back to the car we also had a quick play in the sensory playground.

We’ve been to City View Cafe a number of times now and the service is always friendly and the views are great. We can enjoy a coffee or a meal and our daughter gets to have her choice of playgrounds before or after or both and we all go home happy!

The cafe is open Monday to Sunday 7am to 3pm.
