The Coffee Shop at Tangaloma Resort is a relaxing meeting place. How often we would say let’s meet for a cappuccino and cake at the coffee shop. The shop is loacted within the Main bar area, and provides both indoor and outdoor seating. While sipping a fresh cappachino or hot chocolate soak up the natural beauty of Moreton Bay. The shop also serves a wide variety of light meals, which are made fresh daily, and include, pies, sausage rolls, sandwiches, wraps and pizza swirls. Then it is onto the delectable deserts such as cheesecake, mudcake, vareitys of gateau, slices, and an all time favourite of melting moments and passionfruit kisses.

Any time is ideal also for a milkshake, thickshake or a large selection of icecreams and gelato. There is a wide selection of icecream flavours such as rum and raisin, boysenberry, honeycomb crunch, chocolate or vanilla. The shop opens daily between 8.30a.m. -9 p.m.  What a perfect way to conclude a Tangalooma day with desert or coffee at the coffee shop.

Chef’s Restaurant

Monday, March 3rd, 2008

Chef’s restaurant provides a-la- carte dining in the modern Australian style. The restaurant is located past the main bar area and the Dive shop. The view from the restaurant overlooking the pristine beach and Moreton Bay is magnificent. The combination of indoor/outdoor dining is most appealing, and while the airconditioned ambience is pleasant the doors and windows are open to create the outdoor feeling.

The menu is inspired by local produce from the bay which includes many prawn and seafood dishes. Ever popular are the suculent Malibu king prawns, and the Red Emperor crusted with herbs and goat chese. There is also a variety of prawn dishes “fresh from the tank”. Chef’s also serves duck, lamb and steak. Dessert is not to be missed and includes Butterscotch Schnapps Brulee and White and Dark Chocolate Terrine just to mention a few. A fine selection of Australian cheeses are available to compliment the dining. The restaurant also caters for children, serving Grilled Chicken and Minute Steak both served with Idaho potato and salad.

Private functions (ie. weddings /corporate receptions) are very well catered for. Please contact the Tangalooma Resort for bookings and information.

Chef’s fine dining is part of the Tangalooma experience.
