Every specialty coffee cafe says they're different. Every craft beer bar as well. But Birkdale's newest venue doesn't claim to be one or the other — Craft Brew House is both a coffee shop and a bar in one.
The hybrid venue is one you might expect closer to find closer to the CBD, rather than in the city's southeast. But the shoreside suburb seems to us the perfect location for a one-stop-shop where you can get your caffeine fix when the sun comes up, and relax with a cheeky beverage or two once evening hits.
Craft Brew House also serves up food to suit whatever hour you find yourself stopping by, starting with house-made muesli, muffins and slices first up, as well as the healthy combo that is fresh fruit, ricotta and infused honey on sourdough. Later in the day, you'll find salads, pizzas, frittatas and platters — and, if that doesn't take your fancy, BYOing your own takeaway meal from somewhere nearby is totally acceptable here.
If you're a local, expect to make it your local. And if you don't live bayside, well, you might want to make the trip out to stop by.
Craft Brew House is now open at 190 Birkdale Road, Birkdale. Check out their Facebook page for further details.
