Brasserie by the River

DT@Brasserie on the River -Stamford Plaza Brisbane#

Scones at the Brasserie by the River at Stamford Plaza in Brisbane nearly didn’t happen. My friend and local scone source had called up, was called back and told to come by for scones anytime between 9 and 2.30pm. We arrive at 1.30pm, just as diners are finishing up with the buffet lunch and a wedding is being set up outside in the garden overlooking the Brisbane River. After much too-ing and fro-ing (no one could decide who was to blame for the misinformation?), we are allowed in but are advised that we must be out by 2.30pm, difficult, as our scones don’t arrive until 2.30pm. We are fussed over and a lovely man is given the task to look after the ladies who refuse to leave until they have had their scones! The three flavours; treacle (an instant winner), white chocolate and currant, are straight out of the oven. They are just the right size for afternoon tea, without being too filling, and are served with lashings of apricot and strawberry jam and double thick cream. This spread was definitely worth waiting for, and couple it with an outside table overlooking the boardwalk and the Brisbane River. My advice to call a few times and check with a couple of different people at the Brasserie, and don’t let them turn you away especially when you have been given the information.
