It is time for that big breakfast
The best way to start your day is with a big breakfast and the list below includes top breakfast spots across Brisbane and surrounds.
There is something for all taste buds with this list:
1. Sourced Grocer
Where: 11 Florence St, Newstead Details: Tucked in the riverfront suburb of Newstead this super trendy brekkie spot is like no other, with offerings of culinary fare to the health-conscious. It is part grocer / part café with a step-in cold room and green wall. The famous cabbage pancakes or coal-grilled nectarines with ricotta and candied rye are a must try! Click here for the website.
Where: 900 Brunswick St, New Farm Details: This iconic café opened in 1977 and it is very much loved by locals and visitors alike. It is Brisbane's city oldest and most authentic Italian deli where you will find a sensational breakfast menu with lamb ricotta and basil on flat bread or smashed avocado and tomato on ciabatta, along with the spicy lamb with poached eggs. Click here for the website.
3. Seven South Where: 1/92 Hyde Rd, Yeronga Details: This family-friendly eatery is located in one of the city's most prestigious waterfront suburbs and it features lemon thyme, blueberry and ricotta hotcakes, avocado with goat's cheese and rocket on pumpkin bread and if you are a traditionalist when it comes to brekkie then you will be impressed too! This place is always packed so be prepared to wait at least 15mins for a table. Breakfast is served all day on weekends. Click here for the website.
4. Ruby Café
Where: 233 Given Terrace, Paddington Details: If you love waffles then this brekkie spot is for you! You will find waffles, caramelised banana, bacon and maple syrup, pineapple and mint frappes are also a must try and so is the mushroom sourdough with poached eggs and crispy provolone cheese. This little gem is certainly worth a breakfast visit. Click here for the website
5. The Flying Nun Where: 16 Station St, Samford Village
Details: Located 30mins from Brisbane CBD this mostly organic café serves breakfast with a punch. You will find warm quinoa coconut and pineapple bowls topped with roasted nuts and dark chocolate... this is one dish that needs to be tried! Click here for the website.
