The Tastes of Teneriffe celebrates the vibrancy of Teneriffe through food. Long known as the home to some of Brisbane’s most iconic restaurants, Teneriffe attracts the trendsetters of hospitality; those keen to feed the latest trends or revive good old fashioned service and atmosphere. In a nut shell, Teneriffe showcases WINE, DINE, COFFEE and BREW!
Already well-known for the fabulous array of cafes, bistros and restaurants, Teneriffe's local favourites really turn it on for the festival. Read more about their indiviudual offerings below. No matter your gastronomic persuasion, the Tastes of Teneriffe will find their way into your stomach and your heart.
Green Beacon is Teneriffe’s local craft brewery. Proudly independent and wholly Australian-owned, every Beacon beer is lovingly brewed and packed onsite at their brewery-warehouse in Teneriffe.
Green Beacon will be hard to miss on the day…. With a fully-staged lawn directly in front of the River Stage, you can soak up the sunshine, listen to music all day and sit back to enjoy all that is Teneriffe. And if that wasn’t enough, Green Beacon have collaborated with the much-loved LongTime restaurant to create a bespoke menu that perfectly complements their award-winning beers - all made fresh just 400m away in their brewery!
A long-time favourite for locals, Brio serve up a wonderful selection of fresh and tasty breakfast options that continually change to complement the seasons. And who wouldn’t love sitting on the deck of the London Wool Stores, watching the world pass by, sipping on either a Genovese Super Brazil Coffee or made-to-order cold pressed juice?
Proud to be part of this wonderful community that can celebrate history and urban renewal simultaneously, on the day of the Teneriffe Festival the team at Brio look forward to serving an all-day breakfast or great lunch fare from their decadent yet healthy menu; and all with their signature welcoming service.
The London Club Restaurant & Bar located in the heritage listed London Wool Store building has been a mainstay for locals for many years. The beautiful old-world décor provides a wonderful sense of ease but the contemporary tapas menu is what really delights.
The London Club is always a popular place to visit on the day of the Teneriffe Festival and this year the team have really turned it up with the event’s only Pimms Bar and a mouth-watering range of classic cocktails – all with the London Club twist. Try a pomegranate and apple cider paired with their beef cheek sliders and Texas slaw. Or grab a table on the deck to graze on the full tapas menu and a Stone and Wood ale.
Hemingway Café, located underneath the Winchcombe Carson Wool Store on the corner of Vernon terrace and Dath street, have created a friendly, casual atmosphere where patrons can enjoy an all-day breakfast, complimented with specialty coffee and house-made milkshake mixes. Each day a variety of healthy, delicious salads and sandwiches are also on offer and most of the menu can be prepared to cater for gluten free diets.
Proud to part of our vibrant and diverse local community, Hemingway Café are constantly told their Eggs Benny is the best in Brissie.
Zero Fox is craft beer bar and Japanese kitchen located in the iconic London Wool Store in Teneriffe. They offer 9 to 12 craft beers on tap, constantly rotating and pouring as many different brews as possible. They especially support Australian craft beer breweries and aim to showcase the best Aussie beers and ciders on the market.
Zero Fox will be hard to miss at the Teneriffe Festival as they’ll be extending from their shop-front onto the street to serve Japanese and Korean-inspired street eats, perfectly matched with beers and cider by well-known Australian breweries ‘Feral’ and ‘Willie Smith Cider.’
Family-owned and operated for over a decade, Fish’s Seafood Market has delighted the locals meal after meal with their ever-consistent quality of fresh and cooked seafood and family-fabulous service. Mooloolaba king prawns and Coffin Bay oysters are always in good supply at Fish’s, along with fresh salads and a complete menu of everyone’s favourites fish and chip shop fare.
Owners Brendan and Toula will be serving good old-fashioned fish and chips from their shop on Florence Street on the day of the festival as well as incredible seafood platters – great for the whole family to enjoy.
Dot 210 – located on the Vernon Terrace Street frontage underneath the Mactaggarts Wools Stores, was established just months before the floods smashed through Teneriffe. Whilst probably the smallest venue in the Teneriffe hospitality family, they love being part of the local fabric and their customers are considered family.
Dot 210’s owner, Megan Dugdale, reckons they bake the best muffins in the universe! And she’s probably correct. Baked fresh every day, Dot 210 also try to accommodate flavour requests from their regulars.
On the day of the Teneriffe Festival, visit Dot 210 for coffee – as you like it - moo, soy, almond or Zymil and freshly made to order juices; nothing added but freshness!
Kin + Co provide patrons a sophisticated yet unpretentious space that reflects the character of Teneriffe. Their winter menu features seasonally focussed items such as a mixed mushroom ragout and slow cooked savoury brisket with smoked cheddar.
Operating in one of Brisbane few remaining heritage areas is seen as a privilege for owner /operators Gary, Angela, Alli and Tim who are fiercely proud be part of the community as both residents and business owners.
They'll be serving up to and all the way through the festival and the team can't wait to see the many new faces and old friends drop in before hitting the festival proper.
With a tag line of ‘where good wine meets good company,’ The Claret House Wine Bar at the London Wool Stores has become a firm favourite amongst locals who enjoy the excellent selection of wines, beers and share plates.
Claret offers a great modern Australian fare, with a menu designed to encourage social dining. On the day of the Festival, indulge in a selection of Claret House’s most-loved share plates from the comfort of the bar or the Woolstore deck; alternatively lap up the sunshine in the Sapporo street bar, paired with Teneriffe’s best cheese and charcuterie plate.
The guys at Newstead Brewing tell us their establishment is the confluence of energy and ideas from three brewing perspectives. They talk about biomolecular science with a focus on innovation and precision but really it’s all just a smokescreen for creating seriously good beer – a stable of thoroughbreds…..enough to make a grown up cry like a baby!
They’ll be serving all the usual favourites at the Teneriffe Festival, accompanied by freshly roasted peanuts that owner Michael Conrad makes a two-day journey to Kingaroy to hand pick himself. And in a quirky twist that is predictably characteristic of the brewery, all proceeds from the gold coin cost of the nuts will be donated to Beyond Blue.
The venue watches the river traffic cruise on by, tucked only metres away from the energetic buzz of cosmopolitan Teneriffe. The riverside location will immediately make you feel a sense of calm, where you can relax, indulge in gorgeous food and wine, whilst mesmerized by the view.
Situated in the heart of Teneriffe, Eves on the River boasts fine dining with stunning views of the Brisbane River. One of Brisbane’s most popular restaurants, Eves has been part of the local restaurant scene and Teneriffe community for over ten years.
With seasonal menus based on quality local produce, you can enjoy an elegant dinner, casual lunch or a relaxed breakfast.
