The blink and you’ll miss it cafe on Macquarie Street may look like a hole-in-the-wall coffee spot, but it opens up to a chic, airy café, with outdoor and indoor seating and a crisp design that runs through every element of the venue. On the well-thought out menu you can expect to find plenty of breakfast favourites, including sourdough toast, eggs your way, smashed avocado, and fresh croissants. However, you’re likely to overlook these entirely when you see the rest of their delicious offerings! Staples like bagels and burgers have gotten a Kin + Co twist, including a mushroom bagel piled with rocket, smoked cheddar and Sriracha mayo and a breakfast burger stacked with candied bacon, Gruyere and avocado. Fit-foodies, vegans and vegetarians, meanwhile, are spoilt for choice with dishes like the spicy shakshuka, summer granola, and sautéed greens, quinoa and almonds topped with a perfectly poached egg. kin plus co 2But it wouldn’t be a Brisbane cafe without a sweet tooth option.
