   Sunday Breakfast - 16th February 2014
   Reef Point Cafe - Scarborough

 

 

Arron and Naomi chose to invite members along to one of their favourite cafe's and selected a perfect Sunday morning for the run.

Six Corvettes met at the Shell Nudgee Roadhouse before the 7:30 departure time to catch up for a coffee and wonder at the dozens of old Datsuns and Toyotas gathering for a Japanese car rally nearby.  Watching these small shiny cars & utes buzzing around like a swarm of brightly coloured bees was quite entertaining for a while.

By 7:35 it became evident that no one was coming from the Hyperdolme meeting point and we pointed the Vettes northwards and headed for the peninsular.  Thankfully traffic was light and we were able to travel most of the way as a small convoy with Aaron's red 68 convertible up front.  Max from the Australian Corvettes Association Forum also joined us on his trusty motorcycle.  Unfortunately, we lost Max somewhere in Redcliffe with a suspected mechanical issue but without a mobile phone number were unable to determine his location or situation - sorry Max.

We enjoyed the scenic route along Redcliffe's beautiful waterfront all the way to our destination on the beach front at Scarborough.  Parking was in short supply and we spread the Vettes out in the spots available near the cafe.  This kept the patrons happy as we jostled four reds, a yellow and a gold out front along with two additional reds who met at the venue.

Our table was a little short and we had to spread across another close by to accommodate everyone but soon menu's were read and we were ordering.  I must admit that for a very busy cafe, the food appeared quite quickly and everything was hot and fresh (just like Bill).  The coffee was worth the drive alone and our meals were delicious.  I enjoyed my eggs Benedict with mushrooms but couldn't help admire Naomi's Croque Monsieur.  What's that, you ask??.... (It's a soft panini roll filled with Dijon mustard, leg ham & Swiss cheese, dipped in a light egg/cream mix and gently fried with a side of bacon and maple syrup)  Man, you've gotta try this!

We were treated to a parachute display by the local sky diving club who land on the beach in front of the cafe every Sunday morning.

A great Sunday breakfast venue and the perfect morning to blow a few cobwebs.  I can certainly vouch for our hosts choice of venue and recommend the Reef Point Cafe to everyone as a great spot for a lovely breakfast.

Thank you to everyone who had the opportunity to take part, we were rewarded with great weather, food and company.  A special thank you to Aaron & Naomi for organising a lovely easy, early run.
