So after three years living in this little city, I’ve established some favourite spots that serve up great weekend breakfasts. Here’s a list of my favourites places to get an awesome brekkie in Brisbane.
Shouk Cafe – Paddington
These guys know how to make a breakfast like no other. If you’re sick of the tired brekkie staples of bacon and eggs, the team at Shouk definitely know how to deliver a creative breakfast. My favourite is the Latke stack of Polish potato pancakes, cream cheese, dill, red onion, poached eggs and salmon, but the smashed avo on toast with pomegranate and fetta is also amazing! Reasonably priced and located in the lovely leafy suburb of Paddington.
Comfort at My Table – Milton
Amazing food at great prices. I can never go past the Comfort Eggs (formerly Nims Eggs) with Poached Eggs, bacon, pesto, banana chutney, roasted Roma tomato. The recent price rise means prices are still reasonable (as they used to be uber cheap) and is definitely worth a visit. They serve a great coffee too!
Home Store + Café – Ashgrove
It’s always sad when you move suburbs and have to find a new local hub for great weekend brekkies, but I am stoked we’ve found Home café. The staff are super friendly, the food is phenomenal and well-priced and the variety of the menu is really good. The breakfast bruschetta is probably my favourite, but the weekly specials make it hard to stick to the regular greats. This café is popular with locals, and is always my first suggestion when friends suggest a brekkie catch-up!
Brew – City
Brew is one of those places you could walk straight past if you didn’t know it was there. Located down a small alleyway just off Queen St Mall, it attracts an eclectic crowd in Brisbane’s CBD. Both the Eggs My Way and the avo on toast will only set you back $11, making it a cheap place to eat in the city. Their vintage, grunge vibe with dim lighting and assorted chairs creates a cosy relaxed mood by day, and doubles as a great bar by night.
Anouk – Paddington
A classic and crowd favourite for many Paddington locals, Anouk offers a great range of delicious eats. While a little pricier than some of its nearby offerings, they make up for the price in creativity and presentation. Interesting items include their Nomnom hash: sweet potato, cabbage and kaeserfleisch, poached eggs and bbq sauce and their harissa spiced mince with mango chutney, raita, naan and panch phoran bengali spices.
