I'm a freelance writer, blogger and animal wrangler living in Brisbane's western suburbs. I love to eat, drink, travel, explore ... and then write about my adventures.

This country drive is about the destination, not the journey

The Reserve at Anstead slipped onto the western suburbs dining scene when I wasn't paying attention. One day it wasn't there, the next day it was. In any event, I'm pretty pleased I discovered it.

Located in the premises of the now-defunct Hawkes and Crosby, The Reserve at Anstead boasts the same quiet country bushland setting, and is housed in the same Queenslander-style cottage with polished floors and lazy wrap-around verandahs. There's plenty of parking and with play equipment on the lawn, it's kid-friendly (and dog-friendly, which is always a plus in my books).

Breakfasts are simple and straightforward, with lighter options such as banana bread ($7) and house-made granola with red berries compote and organic yoghurt ($15) alongside more filling classics such as the Eggs Benedict ($20) and the Reserve Grand Breakfast comprised of sausages, bacon, grilled tomato, free range eggs, mushrooms, relish and sourdough ($21.50).

Lunches offered at The Reserve at Anstead are less along the fine dining lines of their predecessor, but if you love burgers, BLT sandwiches, and salads, you're in luck. The priciest items on the lunch menu are the macadamia-crusted barramundi, and the rib eye fillet (both $28.50). I chose the wagyu gourmet burger ($23) which really hit the spot.

The Reserve at Anstead also offer Friday evening dinners. This venue is licensed, so you can kick back with a glass of wine, beer or spirits, and watch the world go by.
