Gnocch gnocch. Who’s there?

Okay, serious question; who decided that the consumption of pasta should be limited to lunch and dinner? ‘Cuz that won’t fly. Don’t get us wrong, we’re always up for a spot of bircher, but we oat to tell you where you can get your hands on Brisbane’s best pasta brekkies – so grab a penne and let’s go.

Salt Meats Cheese | Gasworks

We’re getting the party started with not one, not two, but four flavours of breakfast gnocchi from Salt Meats Cheese. Dive into bowls of mozzarella and tomato stuffed gnocchi served with crispy smoked bacon and poached eggs, vegan beetroot gnocchi with smashed avo and green pea spread, gnocchi with Tasmanian salmon, gravlax, and poached eggs, or the sweet Nutella gnocchi with vanilla ice cream! And if that doesn’t butter your eggrolls, pair your dish with a selection of Bloody Marys for the ultimate breakfast treat.

Morning After | West End

Wild night? Curb your morning blues with a full-blown carb fest at Morning After! You’ll be right as rain after a healthy dose of carbonara with pappardelle, soft eggs, field mushrooms, smoked pancetta and manchego.

Reverends | Fortitude Valley

If, like us, you’re missing the simpler days of snacking, look no further. You can’t go wrong with a childhood classic, and Reverends really revs up the quality of the nostalgic spaghetti on toast with slow cooked house-made tomato sauce and spaghetti on buttered vienna.

Macho Macho | Ashgrove

Ashgrove is not exempt from the pasta takeover, with Macho Macho weighing in with their take on breakfast gnocchi. Your morning carb cravings are sautéed with ricotta gnocchi, spinach and sautéed mushrooms.

Café-O-Mai | Annerley

This dish may not be technically pasta, but Mai O Mai, you bet we’re including noodles. Indulge in a bowl of pho’kin unbelievable pho with seven flavours including beef pho, black angus pho, and vegan pho.

Pasta la vista, baby.
