  • For those of you on the north side, you're lucky - you now have the Phoenix Bar at the Bracken Ridge Tavern. It opened last year after extensive renovations and the White family have done a great job in bringing a little bit of the city to the north side.

  • Hey, I’m not suggesting that I have an ounce of street cred to my name, but for the sake of research (and my ever expanding tummy rolls), let’s just say I strutted down with my ace (the SO) to break it down for you readers and check if DA'Burger deserves some props.

    You down with DA’Burger?

  • I had a half the day off while my 2-week conference gig was in Brisbane. Being a sunny Saturday morning, laziness kicked in and we didn’t wander too far from the hotel and knuckled down at South Side Diner for breakfast. But I just don't think we'd be rushing to try their lunch or dinner menu after this experience.

  • Limes Hotel's have revamped their Rooftop Bar and it's looking very sweet with the addition of two round plunge pools - a perfect summer feature. It is also quite possibly the only venue space I found astroturf perfectly acceptable. If you loved the original Rooftop Bar, don't worry - the amazing view overlooking the Valley and open-air (an auto sail shade was extended overhead to protect us from the worst of the midday rays) are still there to be savored.

  • The Heavens had opened up over Brisbane and I ordinarily love rainy days for the cool relief it brings. But not when we have to go out hunting for breakfast. A quick scan of my to-visit list directed me to the next nearest breakfast joint - Flute Food and Wine in our old stomping ground of Rosalie.

  • There have been numerous good things written about Pawpaw Café and it’s been high on my list to visit. When the SO asked where we should head for breakfast last month, I suggested we drop in to try them out. I was excited and had hoped to be as wow-ed as the other bloggers who seemed to have been with their food and service.

  • My top picks for the day: Samies Girl fresh prawns with lemon (only AUD$5!), the Korean pork sliders (really delish!) and Street St’s roti.

  • Imagine my excitement to learn there was a French café much closer to our home on Brunswick Street. Banneton Bakery is by no means a new player to the hospitality game, but we have consistently missed opportunities to sample their wares from rushing around like headless chooks fulfilling weekly chores. Will Banneton Bakery help fill the void of my little Frenchie heart?
