Go coco-nuts for the south side’s newest café

Weary of having to go for a road trip every time you get a hankering for eggs benny or a good breakfast burger, far south siders? Well save your petrol and get ready to change up your Sunday morning routine for good – St Coco Café has arrived in Daisy Hill. Bringing a touch of hipster chic to Cupania Street, tucked away behind the IGA, this airy new eatery is one from the team behind Hallowed Grounds Espresso, a Mt Gravatt fave. The new spot is bright and breezy with a minimalist design – all the better to showcase the real hero of the venue – the food. Complemented by brews from Wolff Coffee Roasters, the menu features feeds that could rival any inner city café. For a light feed, simple dishes like avo on toasted rye with house made pickled vegetables, hummus and corn dukka and the smokey breakfast burger are perfect for a quick weekday morning breakfast. st-coco-cafe-2In for a lazy weekend? Things get a little bit more creative with plates like the breakfast brulee with berry compote, raw granola and Greek yoghurt, or the rosella and ricotta hot cake topped with candied walnuts and lemon sorbet. The signature St Coco’s hash browns come crispy and golden with a side of poached eggs and sweet capsicum jam – and extra bacon if you’re so inclined. While you can get those breakfast feeds all day, the lunch menu is just as tasty, featuring brisket tortillas, quail egg carbonara and lamb souvlaki. Bonus, the cabinet is filled with healthy treats from Rawr Foods, so you can get something sweet to finish, or take with you for later. Whether you’re a Logan local or just willing to venture out of your comfort zone for a good breakfast, you’ll find St Coco Café at 3 Cupania Street, Daisy Hill open for breakfast and lunch Tuesday to Sunday.
