Life in the Isles Lane

It’s the number one cause of hangry fights, known to ruin potential hot dates, lunch escapes and tear entire families apart. That one question, hanging in the air, poised to destroy lives – ‘where should we eat?’ It’s a question we’re asked almost daily, and as professional writers eaters, we’re required to have the answers.

We’ve toiled day and night, eating and drinking our way through Brisbane (you’re welcome) to know what’s hot, and what is definitely not.

The verdict on the next big thing? We’ve found it ladies and gents, so get ready to live life in the Isles Lane from April. Perfect for any situation from first date to dinner with mates, Isles Lane is set to become THE micro pub destination for fine-casual inner-city dining. Excited? Us too.  

With a capacity to house up to 400 guests (!!!!), Isles Lane is the easy, breezy eating house you’ve secretly been lusting after – and that’s before we even get to the food. Head Chef Lucie Woods displays her passion for fresh, locally sourced produce through her food, bringing modern gastropub vibes to the venue.

How do 60/60 eggs with voodoo bacon and organic sourdough or a Mooloolaba crab omelette with Maleny aged cheddar sound to start your day? Bloody good to us! Pair that with a latte or two and you’re set to crush the corporate world, or at least wrangle the kids.

Looking for lunch or dinner? Whether you’re keen to crack open a cold one over spicy fried school prawns with burnt lemon aioli and haloumi chips, or enjoy a romantic glass of wine over AN ENTIRE SUCKLING PIG (we have different ideas on romance we guess?) – Isles Lane is whatever you want it to be baby.

Best of all? They’re open ‘til late seven days a week. Score!
