City views and a European brunch
Weekends can be a lovely time to finally have that sleep in you have been longing for all week, but I guarantee that this is worth waking up for. An early morning walk along Kangaroo Cliffs makes for a breathtaking view of the city we love. I personally like making a large circuit by continuing across the story bridge, walking along the boardwalk and back past QUT.
After chatting incessantly with my friend as we walked, we decided to try out the Euro Cafe in Woollongabba nearby. The Euro Cafe is tucked away from the other cafes in the Gabba with their long waiting lines for Sunday brunch. In fact, there was only one other customer when my friend and I entered. I ordered a breakfast wrap with bacon, egg, swiss cheese and your choice of sauce for just $9. I chose aioli as the sauce and the staff member asked if I'd like to add avocado for no extra fee - yes please. The wrap was delicious, filling and the service was great.
My friend ordered the pancakes with Greek yoghurt, poached fruit, berry compote and of course, maple syrup and cinnamon. The pancakes were $12.50. Overall, we both agreed that we would definitely come back again. The food was amazing and very well priced, the staff were friendly and helpful and it was a nice quiet peaceful atmosphere where we didn't have to yell at each other over screaming toddlers. A peaceful walk followed by a delicious brunch - what a lovely morning out.
