Commemorate 100 years at these bistros
MJ’s Coffee 2 Go
MJ’s Coffee 2 Go is a mobile coffee van that is a local caffeine favourite at all types of events in Rocky. This weekend, MJ’s Coffee 2 Go will be working alongside the Central Queensland Military Museum at the Old Barracks for your ANZAC Day breakfast and coffee for this early Saturday morning. Starting at 5am, there will be a sausage sizzle and breakfast served up near the beginning of the ANZAC Day march. MJ’s Coffee 2 Go will be serving up their regular amazing coffees and teas to takeaway, so if you struggled to get out of bed for the sunrise start you can quickly rectify the situation with a hot cup of coffee. These guys will be brewing their coffee until 2pm if you choose to stick around to the end of the services and parade. Don’t miss this commemorative event for some breakfast and coffee to fuel your ANZAC Day activities this Saturday, and don’t worry about your early morning start.
Where: Cnr Alma & Archer Streets, Rockhampton QLD 4700
After you’ve watched the parade, head down to the Rockhampton Leagues Club for some lunch. The Rockhampton Leagues Club will be opening at 12pm for trading in their bistro, so grab the family and head down here for a yummy meal and a break from the outdoors. Choose from their huge bistro menu including traditional T-bones, chicken & bacon ranch pizzas or crumbed fish of the day served alongside chips and fresh salad. If you’re a member, grab one of the $10 lunch specials and a schooner to wash it down. You can even grab a coffee to go if you’re planning on heading back outside for the remainder of your day off and needing more caffeine as a pick me up after your early rise. You’ll love taking a seat in their modern dining area, so don’t pass by here if you need a place to eat on the public holiday.
Where: Cambridge Street, Rockhampton QLD 4700
If you’ve forgotten to grab groceries or don’t want to be cooking over the weekend, the Rivergreens Bistro at the North Rockhampton Bowls Club will be serving food for dinner from 6pm. There’ll also be lawn bowl games being played from 1pm in the afternoon if you want to keep your family or friends entertained for the remainder of the day until it’s time to eat. For the parents, sit down to a full plate of grilled chicken breast or a big works burger served with chips. Kids meals include favourites such as fish, crumbed sausage or Hawaiian pizza all served with a side of chips. Visit the Rivergreens Bistro this ANZAC Day for a filling meal and a game of bowls after the official services and parades. This is the perfect family friendly location for a delicious meal post-ANZAC Day commemorations, so don’t stress about keeping the kids fed this public holiday.
