Weddings, Parties, Everything

Raul Hinkson

Northshore Harbour Café has undergone an exciting transformation, welcoming new executive chef Raul Hinkson, a delicious new menu and elegant fitout – perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch and the ideal venue for your next private function.

Pivotal to the changes is the café’s desire to become a more integral part of the community, says Venue Manager Elle Clifton.

“In addition to our great new menu, we have curated a small pantry fully stocked with a fantastic range of locally made goodies and giftware.

“We have also partnered with River to Bay, which runs a fleet of modern, fast boats that connect day trippers to the best spots along the Brisbane River and into Moreton Bay. 

“Through this partnership we are able to provide locals with exclusive dining and drinking options, either before or after departure from the Hamilton Northshore Public Pontoon, located just steps from the café.”

What has influenced you in creating Northshore Harbour Café’s new menu?

Northshore Harbour Café shares a real sense of community. It’s a fantastic place for people to catch up, share a delicious meal and enjoy each other’s company. Our new menu aims to foster these connections and we have introduced share plates for exactly that reason. The Antipasti Platter and Lemon Pepper Fried Calamari have been a hit already. Perfect for those in between times or when you need to leave room for dessert!

What inspires you when composing new dishes?

As a chef, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing people enjoying the food I make. The new menu inspiration comes from my passion for fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Not only does this ensure each meal is of the highest quality, but it also supports local business and Northshore's commitment to the community.

What else is new on the menu?

We have introduced some new dishes like the Three Cheese Potato Hash Benedict for breakfast and the Asian Fish Tacos for lunch. Kids have 
their own special menu with classics like Buttermilk Pancakes and Mini Cheeseburgers. I just love our family friendly location too. With all the green space surrounding the café and adjacent playground equipment, parents can linger a little longer while the kids go and play.
