28 Aug

 I set out on a mission to go for brunch in Airlie Beach today. On my way I stopped at a little harbour just outside of Cannonvale to nab a few photos of the glorious day and accidentally stumbled on this little gem.

My Rainbow Cafe is on the first level of the Shingley Bay Resort in Cannonvale. With an alfresco balcony boasting amazing views of the harbour, I could not resist.

I first walked in to see a well stocked cabinet of pastry selections. Everything is made on the premises and I could not go past the Beef Pie.

You can choose to have this with Salad and Chips or if you are like me and prefer not to overload, I just had the pie.

The staff are friendly, attentive when required and most of all they care if you are having a great experience. The owner of this business should be proud of the effort and ease at which these girls work.

My tea came out in this cute little pot, I felt like I was at a high tea rather than just a mere lunch. Nice touch with the home made shortbread biscuit as well. The whole experience mad me want to drive back the 1 hour and 45 minutes from Mackay again. This was worth the drive by itself.

Make sure you try a pie or take one away for a light dinner. They are not filling... but the pastry is light, flaky and sensational. Above was the view from my table.

Thank you for an enjoyable experience to both the owner and the staff that were on that day. Keep up the great work I will be back.😉
