Get your day off to a good start at Industry and Co

With a reputation for "the best toasties in Margate", quality coffee and an atmosphere that makes you feel good eating there, Industry and Co have grown quite a following.

The cafe, which Redcliffe Opportunities for People's Enhancement Association (ROPE) opened in 2017, also serves quiches, sausage rolls, pizza bread, soup, muffins, brownies, slices, scones, waffles and much more.

ROPE Chief Executive Wes Bleakley says the team has high standards and gives young people with a disability the opportunity to develop skills in hospitality and customer service.

The cafe has an industrial look but a welcoming feel when you walk through the door. They serve Dark coffee Aromas Chicago. The cafe is open from 8am-noon on Mondays and from 8am-2.30pm on other weekdays

It is managed by Sarah Stephens, and assistant manager, Jodi Rosenow, who are there five days a week.

“I wanted it to be West End in Margate, something a little bit funky and different,” Wes says.

“It’s a great place to grab a toastie, great for local businesses and great for coffee.”

Quality, fresh seafood, light sauces, delicious salads – these are the summer flavours on the menu at restaurant The Golden Ox!

The family-owned venue has been serving top-notch cuisine showcasing the best the Moreton Bay Region has to offer for over 40 years and over the summer months, it's the season for seafood.

“The most popular at the moment is Mooloolaba whiting fillet. People are going crazy for that,” owner Nick Tzimas says.

Gold band snapper is also sought-after, served with ratatouille, pan fried lemon and artichoke desiree potato, lemon beurre blanc and caperberry salsa.

Peter Tzimas, the Head Chef has created a Flavours by the Sea menu, featuring scallops, prawns, wild North Queensland barramundi and eye fillet steak with garlic prawns.

Always popular are the hot and cold seafood platters, which come with salad and fruit. It’s the perfect combination for this time of year.

Nick says lighter dishes are always a good option in summer when most people don’t feel like a heavy meal, and it’s the perfect season to share with those you love.
