Pippy Fish Cafe, Thorneside
Fish and chippie lovers, listen up. Brisbane's bayside has gained a new go-to for fresh seafood and local sips in Thorneside. Overlooking Beth Boyd Park and Waterloo Bay, Pippy Fish Cafe is a pescatarian’s delight, offering everything from a classic fish cornetto to fresh-flavoured feasts for your whole crew.
Smaller bites like the black bao bun with soft shell crab and the luxe lobster tail brioche roll offer a tasty introduction to Pippy’s charm. Mains showcase the freshest local catch and a flair for flavour with the likes of chilli prawn fettucine and crispy skin salmon.
For those looking to unwind, Pippy’s well-curated list of Australian craft beer keeps it local, focusing on independent producers, and a rotating on-tap offering. A streamlined wine selection leans heavily towards light Australian whites, perfect for pairing with seafood. Lovers of red, rosé and prosecco rest easy, you are not forgotten, with dedicated selections.
For the classic fish and chip experience, takeaway options include fish of the day, prawns by the kilo, and the crispy and convenient ‘fish cornetto’, combining seafood, salad and chips in one easy-to-hold cone.
Anyone who has visited Pippy’s sister cafe, Blue Tongue Pantry, knows that great service and quality produce are a given. Pippy shares its roots in Blue Tongue’s disability support, making its kitchen available in the mornings for participants of the Blue Tongue Adventure disability support day programs to learn cooking and hospitality skills.
