When is an onion not an onion???

After much debate we headed off to the Outback Bar and Grill at Browns Plains for dinner tonight. Sadly we didnt have a booking and although the place was almost empty they assured us it would be at least and hour and a half before they would have a table for us.  We couldn’t wait that long so headed along the road to one of our favourite Coffee Clubs.  We have eaten here several times and should have come here last week instead of the disaster meal we had next door.

Great Welcome

Luckily for the kitchen Casey saved the day, smoothed our ruffled feathers and can take the credit for our continued patronage.

    1. The food at Coffee Club restaurants is generally of a very high standard. We often eat there for breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or in betweens. We like the Coffee Club at Browns Plains Village for Dinners….Springfield Orion for breakfast and Calamvale Central for other times. We have also had dinner at Coffee Club Mt Gravatt a couple of times and what we notice is the consistent quality across them all.
