Where to find the best coffee river view in Brisbane

Where can you find freshly brewed coffee, home made muffins and more, with a view that you could enjoy for hours?

The answer is Brendan's Cafe on the Goodwill Bridge.  It's right in the heart of Brisbane City yet suspended over the middle of the river.

Last Sunday I got out early for a power walk along the Brisbane River boardwalk at Southbank.

There's two hour street parking in Grey Street which is so much cheaper than the expensive all-day parking  in the underground car park.

We headed down towards Kangaroo Point along the Brisbane River but took a short detour on the Goodwill Bridge which connects Southbank and the Queensland University of Technology (my old stamping ground).

Half way across the bridge is what must be Brisbane's coffee with the best view. I'm sure this must be a popular stop with city workers needing an early morning lift as they start the day.

For the rest of the world, there's a couple of benches where you can take a break, drink your coffee and watch the river action. Great way to show off the city to visitors!

The coffee cart is open seven days a week from 5.30am till it gets quiet, which is some time late in the afternoon. It's worth the effort for the view.
