I'm a mother of four with two coeliac children. I'm always on the lookout for great gluten-free spots around Brisbane and feature gluten-free cooking in my blog: coeliacfamily.blogspot.com.au
I'm also a muso and enjoy live music around town.

Tasty breakfast tucked away in Toowong is worth a trip
When you see the name of this cafe, it certainly doesn't sound like a place to head for a weekend breakfast, however building on their success at being one of Brisbane's best Fish and Chip shops and acting on frequent customer requests, The Kingfisher Seafood Cafe have opened their doors for breakfast.
Smoked Salmon, Avocado Plate & Veggie Plate were three of the options
Hidden away in the back streets of Toowong in Dean Street, this cafe, the dream of ex-Salt chef, Deepak, is a quiet haven on a Saturday or Sunday morning. With menu choices such as smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, avocado plate, bacon and eggs and bircher muesli, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy. My son loved the delicious veggie plate, complete with grilled haloumi, eggs, baby spinach and field mushrooms. All of the hot meals are served with Deepak's brilliant homemade tomato relish which we wished we could purchase by the jar. Coeliacs diners are also catered for, with gluten free bread available and Deepak very aware of strict gluten free requirements. The kids also enjoyed their freshly made fruit smoothies, with mango and banana the popular choices. You can see more of the menu by visiting the Kingfisher Cafe Website.
There is plenty of indoor and covered outdoor seating available
The cafe has pleasant indoor and outdoor seating and there is parking around the back of the building if there are no street parks available. The prices are reasonable and the coffee was good (always important early in the morning). The Kingfisher Seafood Cafe is open for breakfast from 8am-12pm on Saturday and Sunday. If it's fish and chips you're after, then visit from 11am - 8pm Tuesday to Sunday. The cafe also offers a catering service and take away is available.
