Suburban |South Brisbane
The Village People understood the need for an eggs benedict that won’t crack the bank when they said ‘go west’. Suburban West End offer up a poached egg on sourdough bread topped with spinach and hollandaise sauce with your choice of bacon, pulled pork or haloumi for $10. The deal runs Monday to Friday and is available all day, so grabbing eggs benedict for a cheap breakfast and then again for a cheap lunch sounds like a totally valid meal plan to us.
Sichuan Bang Bang | Paddington, Wilston & Kenmore
