Where's the Best Breakfast in Brisbane?

Home > Brisbane > Cafes | Coffee | Food and Wine | Questions
Writer's Answer:
Published October 16th 2011
Having covered Brisbane's best coffee, let's talk breakfast - the most important meal of the day - particularly important when suffering from a hangover. We have reviewed a couple of breakfast joints on WeekendNotes - some recommendations from the Brisbane team included The Gunshop Cafe, Lady Marmalade Cafe, The C Word and Tognini Bistro Cafe Deli.

Other top Brisbane picks would have to include Pearl Café in Woolloongabba, Piaf Bistro in South Brisbane, Anouk in Paddington and Comfort at My Table in Milton.

If you know of a great breakfast spot in Brisbane, please let us know about it by leaving a comment below. All kinds of breakfast dishes are welcome; from pancakes to a full English breakfast to Nasi goreng and everything in-between.

We look forward to your suggestions.

Comfort at My Table in Milton is the best food for the best price. I have tried heaps of places for breakfast and nothing can compare to Comfort, in my opinion. It's proof that you can make really delicious food for a really reasonable price!

Stomp in mount gravatt have an excellent breakfast perfect poached eggs and spinach, avacado and hummus on toast that makes my moth water just thinking about it. Bicher muesli that has generous amounts of mixed berries at the bottom and a tease of grated apple refreshing the whole emsemble. And!!! the coffee is excellent, I've had a lot of burnt coffee in places recently and there's nothing worse these guys get it right every time :-)

Flute, the Greek breakfast is to die for and so are the pancakes & ice cream with Persian fairy floss
Egg Bistro, simply delicious
Sassafras, delicious and the back garden is chill out
Pearl, it's a bit hit and miss but when it hits delicious, I ate the best bread and butter pudding with buterscotch sauce ever (who says you can't have desert for breakfast?)
Gun Shop Cafe, Fetta hash cakes, wow
Double Shot, New Farm ( don't tell though its tiny and fabulous)
Vue, consistently good food
PonyCat, interesting breakfasts with a twist, love it
Anouk, busy but always a quality breakfast
Cafeine, do amazing things with tomatoes
Shady Palms, better than Lady Marmalade
The Rare Pear, nice
Moose and Gibson, it's a little bit funky, very busy with take away coffees which sometimes slows the service
Jetty, Bulimba, delicious and such a beautiful spot
the cliffs at Kangaroo point, food is more often than not a miss but the view is amazing
and of course Yum Cha is a favourite of mine, I like China House
and the West End Markets is always good for breakfast, as well as doing the F&V

so there you go, just a few suggestions

Simple but different - Brewbakers, Sandgate Rd Albion, coffee is great so are the staff and the food is delicious and well priced.
Stockholm Syndrome across the road is a great alternative for a quieter option, good coffee, fun staff and lovely, dark home baked rye.
