With an exclusive location on the Brisbane river, right through to the historic Yungaba Complex, secret beach and million dollar view of the Story Bridge, Medley Cafe is not only serving up some of the best seasonal and delicious meals, they are providing Brisbane with one of the city’s best and greatest cafe restaurants.
Part of the Yungaba complex, the Medley Cafe shares the history of the Yungaba House which served as an Immigration Depot for most of its time since it was built in 1887. Through the inspiration of thousands of migrants who seeked refuge in this complex, Medley believe that one of the greatest gifts that migrants brought to Australia was the diversity of cuisine. Built on a philosophy that hospitality is the contemporaneous exchange designed to enhance mutual well-being for the people involved through the provision of food and drink, Medley provide genuine and warm hospitality - which is seen in and throughout their mannerism, service, and most important, their word inspired menu.
With a menu that changes seasonally, you are guaranteed of produce that is of the utmost freshest quality. With a range of dishes to suit every dietary requirement, Medley provides a menu that is both inspiring, delicious and innovative. With views of the river and Story Bridge, treating yourself to a sunset dinner has never sounded better. Start your night off with an entree of Gold Coast Tiger Prawns with garlic and lemon, or treat your tastebuds to a delicious “Bulgogi Pork Hash” with kimchi jam and radish.
The incredible thing about Medley’s food, is the interesting combination of flavours that blends so well together. This is easily seen in their mains with dishes such as “Confit Duck” with celeriac puree, gomae kale, glazed baby beets and tangelo jus. Opt for a lighter dinner with their ‘Kamon Nasu Eggplant” dish with parsnip & beetroot galette, char-grilled rice cake, goats curd and miso.
And how could you end the night without a beautiful dessert to watch the sun set? Treat yourself to a beautiful “White Chocolate & Chestnut Fondant” with speculoos ice cream, or opt of a lovely coffee and house made cake (made with love by Nick the owners mother).
With such pride and innovation in their cooking and philosophy, there isn't a choice that wouldn't satisfy every bit of craving you have. The Medley cafe not only provide amazing food, but their service and good hearted nature leave you feeling like part of the Medley family. For a beautiful meal with a beautiful view, there really is no other place to go.
