Brendan always has a happy welcoming smile to go with his excellent coffee. Which is a perfect way start the day.


We frequent Brendan's cafe weekly on bikes, service, coffee and food is exceptional!!



Great coffee with a wonderful view of Southbank and the Brisbane River. The home made cakes etc. are of the highest quality. Friendly and fast service from Brendan and his sons.


This is one of the best locations with a fantastic view to have a coffee. World standard with great staff and the best coffee made better with a piece of Kelly's cake.


Fabulous coffee served by Brendan and his team, yummy homemade cakes and an amazing view right over the Brisbane River. It's the highlight of my regular early morning bike ride. Highly recommended for locals and tourists alike!


Brendan's Cafe on the Goodwill Bridge is an experience not to be missed! The coffee is fantastic, the view is incredible, the food is remarkable and Brendan's fashion sense is SHARP! This is a great place to come, chat with people, watch ferries zip past, befriend cute dogs and there always seems to be beautiful cyclists hanging......


Best coffee and service in town! Brendan and his crew are fun, professional and create a fabulous atmosphere to brighten up your day! Cakes are home made and delicious!



Best coffee in Brisbane and such excellent and different food. Awesome views and brilliant friendly service.


Very friendly, great coffee and wonderful cakes.


If you desire the best coffee in Brisbane, accompanied by the most delicious treats in Brisbane, served by the dapperest of baristas, with the most spectacular views then look no further! You have found your coffee utopia at Brendan's Cafe on the Goodwill Bridge.


Often one goes on a walk with no destination in mind. soon enough you find yourself somewhere you had no idea you were going. How lucky was I!! This is a fantastic little spot. As you meander along the river and cross the Goodwill Bridge you'll be greeted by the friendliest of baristas. Right in the middle of the bridge, it's tucked to the side with a gorgeous outlook to while away the afternoon with the sun shining down. With a welcoming 'Hello', I was drawn in. The baristas seem to know everyone by first names, and greet those they don't like they will soon be the best of friends. The baked products are delicious. I had to try two in the end! The coffee is Merlo, and although not my favourite a good barista can work magic on it. I had a nice flat white and a delicious hot chocolate. I'd certainly be back. It'll be my half way point. Half way to somewhere, halfway to anywhere, pretty much going to figure out how to work those peanut butter brownies into my route.



Excellent! Brendan is the best! Love every moment I spend here!


Excellent coffee and view over the river. However, the most outstanding aspect of the cafe is the service. You don't feel like u are just another coffee order. You feel part of the community.


Awesome we love Brendan, he is so stylish and makes amazing coffee. Great view too


Great coffee, view and service


Amazing coffee, view, service and extras (I'm talking pillows, blankets, music and free little biscuits). Definitely a favourite place to hang out - Brendan is a cool guy and he uses biodegradable cups for coffee.. There are also amazing nice things baked fresh every day by Brendan's wife on offer as well... it has everything!


Best coffee ever.


Can't get much better than this!!!


Fantastic on all levels!!!


Always fantastic coffee, people and experience. I come here almost every day - no place in Brisbane does a better cappuccino!


Best coffee, location, and atmosphere in Brisbane!


Bredan is one of the best barista's in this city. With his charm and smile his endless adventures there are few better places in Brisbane to stop for five minutes, have a coffee and watch the world go by.


It's not just the great coffee that gets me going . Brendan's polite manner and good old fashions happy energetic service is the best I have ever experienced. Yummy fresh European inspired cakes,


Friendly and welcoming service by the best dressed barista in town! Everyone who works there is a delight. The BEST cakes, slices and muffins anywhere, all made with love. Not to mention the view!!!


Amazing food and coffee served by friendly people with arguably one of the best views in town!
