Dandelion & Driftwood

DT@Dandelion and Driftwood, Hendra, Brisbane#2

Dandelion & Driftwood’s mission statement is to deliver high quality coffee and teas to Brisbane’s northern suburbs. A barista stands behind a coffee cart on the footpath, while customers who want to hang around squeeze into the Tea Garden or cosy up indoors. If you can make it past the cakes, jams, teas and coffee beans for sale, you’re in for a real treat. The scones are creamy, buttery and silky smooth – can a scone possibly be described like this? Wowser! I could eat a batch of these lovelies. The Meander Valley double cream has the consistency and taste of clotted cream, but the waiter says that some batches of the same cream can be more like double cream, so I guess it’s a lucky dip. The Paul Grainger raspberry jam is exquisitely rich and super thick with raspberries, a sit shold be. With high quality scones, jam and cream, it won’t be too long until DT lovers start flocking to Dandelion & Driftwood.




Tea: An excellent tea menu of loose-leaf teas are sold under the ‘Dandelion and Driftwood’ label and served in a hip teapot and cup. Each tea as well as coffee comes with a small laminated card with a beverage description and brewing directions.

Price: $$ to $$$ (depending on whether you want two of the delectable scones)

Overall: Although it can get cramped, this café does every aspect of a modern Devonshire Tea excellently!
