When planning my trip to Brisbane to meet a family member from a very early international flight I checked out the reviews for a top place nearby for brunch. Dandelion and Driftwood in Hendra got great reviews including one calling it 'the best in Brisbane'. The outside certainly looked great with a few meters of red carpet adding a welcoming... More

We chose Dandelion and Driftwood because it was open until 4 pm on a Saturday. Staff were very friendly and smartly dressed. The menu was a bit overwhelming, just too much choice. Having said that after working our way through the many pages we independently chose the same item on the menu. Food was tasty if a little plain and... More

I love my coffee and this delivers on all levels. Take the Dandelion Blend of you like a thick bodied coffee, nice rounded flavours and creamy. Edelweiss is rich and dark with a hint of butterscotch. It's hard to stop at just one cup. Really nice place to have breakfast and a coffee before a day of meetings or grab... More

We read this place was one of the best high teas! We were so wrong! $35 each for two scones, 1 cupcake, three tiny desserts on one two tier stand and a coffee. Our second beverage we ordered was a tea costing us $6! Value for money was zero! We were NOT informed that getting the savoury high tea and... More

Hi Rita So very upset to read you are now using this platform to vent your elaborated comments. After numerous phone calls to my staff and numerous demanding and rude emails which have all been followed up professionally, you try to publically humiliate my business. How dare you belittle my staff and my business, we care for our customers and... More

My friend and I visited for morning tea today and were very impressed. Fresh flowers on the table, attentive and professional wait staff, great value for money. The food was great! By far one of the best places for this price category.

My family and I shared a pleasant morning here enjoying high tea. Ribbon sandwiches, scones & cakes. The tea was exceptional, made lovingly for each of us.

Positive: Best gourmet coffee I ever had. I have tried their Dandelion blend and Driftwood blend. The Driftwood blend has stronger intensity than Dandelion blend. Both blends are good. I tried the How We Roll sandwich. The combination of bacon, fried egg, rockets, aioli and bbq sauce in a burger ban is great. It's delish! Staff are attentive, friendly and... More
