  • With only a general direction to guide us, we set off with our eyes open for a spot that both looked promising and peaceful – as it turned out, Bangbang Espresso Bar and Cafe was only around the corner and met both requirements very nicely.

  • Leaf Espresso Bar is truly a hidden gem. It wouldn't be a stretch of the imagination to think it's unlikely anyone who does not live in the suburb would think to find this cafe bar, because it is well nestled in the greenery of mature tree lined suburbia. Even the frontage seemed initially unassuming.

  • Nonetheless I do like the occasional bubble tea. Just without the bubbles. I've found too many stores unable to provide consistently good bubbles (not too hard, not too soft and definitely not too sweet), so I have stuck to just the teas. And at the moment, my favorite has to be the Oolong milk tea from reP.I.T. Tea & Juice Bar in Elizabeth Arcade in the Brisbane CBD.

  • Locale is an Italian influenced neighbourhood cafe in Newstead we happened to drop by while hunting for breakfast one rainy morning. With its bright red and white signboard beckoning, we ducked in to get out of the drizzle and warm up to start a busy day.

  • Our first visit to Sage on Ann was not encouraging and I'm not sure I'd visit again. Sage on Ann's kitchen had committed the cardinal sin of hard boiling the poached egg yolks, drying up any delight at having free-range eggs out with the missing trickle of liquid gold.

  • I was advised by several people via Twitter and Facebook to give the Gunshop Café's potato & feta hash cakes a go. That included a warning that they might be a little on the large portion size, but I braved it anyway.

  • The Pantry on Egmont is in the 'atas' part of town in Adelaide (extra brownie points, if you know what 'atas' means). It exudes waves of retro chic that is at once homely and inviting.
