  • It's been too long since we dug down for yum cha and the ones we usually hit up were either too far or it would be too difficult to find parking. Talk about being lazy. Then we remembered that Bamboo Basket had just opened an outlet at Portside in Hamilton, a much more reasonable drive with better chances of scoring a park than its South Brisbane location.

  • After unpacking and tackling 2-weeks’ worth of laundry after 2 weeks of work travel in December, we hopped into the car to check out Primal Pantry enroute to the supermarket for the first time. We have been several times since, always for breakfast.

  • 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.

  • Swimming works up an appetite, so after a shower back at the hotel, we were in the market for a good breakfast. While we walked back to the hotel, a place caught our eye - Barzura. It had been busy when we went to the beach and now walking back, we noted the buzz hadn’t waned.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • We rolled up to Alcove Café and Deli, a little quaint gem hidden round the corner and out of sight from the main road. They might not be a full deli you could come to associate with the word, but they still offer quite a variety of goods and breakfast.

  • It has been an incredible weekend at the Eat Drink Blog conference, where 80 food bloggers from across the country descended upon Perth. While I gather my thoughts and reflect on what I've learnt, here's some food porn for you to oogle at from the conference.

  • Driving through Hawthorne, the row of old fashioned wood deck chairs out the front of Bungalow 4171 caught Ainead's eye. We parked down a suburban side street to see what they had in the way of breakfast.
