This New Cafe In Banyo Offers A Nice Little Spot for Outdoor Dining

Banyo is one of the lovely areas in Brisbane, and its cafes, emerging at a vast rate, provide some of the best opportunities for fun and relaxation. One of the newly opened cafes in the suburb is The Ole Dairy, a family-friendly cafe that opens for breakfast and lunch.

With its stunning view of the fields, it’s probably one of the best places to stop in and get some work done or just have a breather. They offer a seasonally rotating menu of sweets, ice cream, malted milkshakes, and sliders.

One of the highlights here is crab sandwich, served fresh with lettuce, Marie Rose sauce, and lemon and goes perfectly with a cup of coffee courtesy of Fox. The Fraser Island Spanner Crab sandwich, the cafe’s signature dish, also comes with a gluten-free version.

If you feel like dining outdoors, you can enjoy your breakfast or lunch in their new dining area outside, which is socially distanced, pet friendly, and shady.

Owned by Katrina Matthews, a former international flight attendant and Benita Orwell, a 2017 MasterChef contestant, this cafe was born out of the two ladies’ passion for cooking.

“I’m currently on maternity leave, and because of what Covid is throwing at us I decided that I would follow my passion of owning a café and now here I am,” Matthews shared. Now, The Ole Dairy has received many good reviews, and her co-owner Beni can’t get more excited to welcome visitors to their new cafe.

The Ole Dairy is open every Wednesday to Sunday from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. Friday trading hours extend up to 3:30 pm. Do note that on some days, customer parking is plentiful both onsite and in the nearby streets.
