Inside Portside – June 2018 – Our Top Things to do at Portside Wharf on the Weekend

FROM AM-PM: We love spending the day out and about and what better place than Portside Wharf?! From brunching in the autumn sunshine to sipping cocktails by the river, Portside Wharf has an array of drool worthy restaurants and shops for you to lust over. If you’re still not convinced that Portside Wharf should be your new weekend hangout, then sit down and strap in because we’re about to talk you through the eight must-do things at Portside Wharf this weekend!


Mornings are for brunch and there’s no better place than Cruisers Alfresco! Whether you prefer your eggs poached, scrambled, sunny side up (or alongside lobster), Cruisers Alfresco have a cracking menu that will satisfy even the pickiest eater in your life! If savoury isn’t your style, the decadent blueberry, banana or strawberry pancakes will satisfy your cravings.

Alternatively, you can get your superfood fix all at Pineapple Express Café, with morning eats like protein pancakes topped with mixed berries, honey, coconut yoghurt and bee pollen or a green breakfast bowl packed with kale, avocado and eggs. If you’re a bruncher, tuck into naked burgers in a lettuce ‘bun’ and zucchini pasta. We all love our carbs, but we also love our skinny jeans.

If you adore statement shoes that are made beautifully and speak to your personal style, then look no further because you’re sure to find your new favourites at Cassardi Shoe Studio. Their current autumn range is full of bright hues, and embellishments which will undoubtedly draw an admiring eye.


If you didn’t get your caffeine fix at breakfast, then Deer Sir is your next stop! The boutique café serves air roasted Allpress Coffee, Harney & Son’s Tea, and sweet and savoury treats. Sharing its space with sister store Co Design, at Deer Sir you can spend an afternoon sipping tea and browsing homewares. Heaven? We think so!

In the mood for a burger after your shopping? Make your moo-ve on a Wagyu beef burger and chips at Belvedere Bar and Grill, washed down with a pot of icy cold beer. Alternatively, pop in to Hello Harry’s for one of their signature burgers, fries and drink deals.

Feeling like you Mexi-can go a taco? Salsa your way into Burrito Bar for a feast that won’t break your budget! Try their tacos, mexi fries or a large burrito.

If you’ve got some time on your hands why not catch the latest film? Dendy Cinemas have a range of films for everyone including kids! Check out the latest films, call Dendy Cinemas on (07) 3137 6000 or visit the website at

Men of Brisbane, who want to get pampered? Bou’s for Men is a man’s barbershop (no girl dos or hair spray in sight). It’s a place you can go before a date and get a haircut, lather shave, and spritz of cologne, or before a night out with the lads. You are sure to leave Bou’s feeling refreshed, looking dapper and smelling good.


Cocktails count as dinner, right? We like to think so anyway, so we’re forever thankful for Byblos and their epic range, particularly with their sweet weekly cocktail specials!

Fresh n Wild are living up to their name with fresh and wild seafood chowder in a sourdough bowl or just feeling like seafood but not in soup form? Ginga Sushi have you covered with their bento box!

Need something a little fancier?  Gusto da Gianni has a table ready for you with mains including favourites like pizza, lasagne and pumpkin risotto any night of the week. Bellisimo!

End the evening with a sweet treat from Max Brenner! Share a fondue for two or enjoy decadent strawberries dipped in chocolate or an Italian thick hot chocolate!
