The Brisbane breakfast bucket list
Forget sky diving, climbing Everest and learning another language–our bucket list involves eating our way...
We love a good feed...
There’s few things that are better in life than a delicious feed, and one of them is a delicious and good-looking one. It’s always a bonus when your meal makes for a poppin’ Insta post, so we’ve rounded up our favourite spots where you can treat yourself, and your gram!
Morning After has to take the cake for one of the most Instagrammable cafes in Brisbane. White brick, natural light and wooden decor make for the perfect backdrop, along with their incredibly photogenic food. Whatever you order, it’s guaranteed to look and taste delicious – we love the sound of their vanilla hotcake with rum & raisin ice cream, maple, caramelised banana, honeycomb and macadamia crumb.
Known for their epic gluten-free donuts, Nodo has much more to offer. They’re serving up some of the best coffee and breakfasts in town, with an emphasis on fresh and healthy flavours. We would highly recommend their Ice Magic acai bowl with organic acai, house baked chocolate granola, house-made Ice Magic, winter berries and freeze-dried cherry. If you’re in a savoury mood, their milk bun with free-range bacon, spring onion mayo soft fried egg and native ketchup never fails to hit the spot.
There’s a good chance you’ve seen pics from Miss Jones plastered all over your feed, but if you’re not familiar with this cute-as-buttons breakfast spot, it’s time to give it a visit. With baby pink walls, neon signs and pops of greenery plus a delicious breakfast menu, Miss Jones is some serious eye candy. Not only does it look the part, but they’re dishing up a delicious menu of brunch bites, such as the Green Breakfast with spinach, broccolini, kale, tri-coloured quinoa, dukkha, roast pumpkin, halloumi and poached eggs, or the Nutella acai bowl with acai flow, Nutella, vanilla bean coyo ice cream, banana, strawberry and hazelnut granola.
The beautiful baked goods at this West End bakery are almost too pretty to eat – ALMOST. It will be impossible to resist their selection of handcrafted croissants and pastries, along with their menu of more substantial eats such as salads, sandwiches and bagels. Soak in their super cute pink interior and grab one of their grilled halloumi buns with cos lettuce, tomato, aioli and pickle, topped off by the sweet treat of your choice!
Sister is definitely Insta-friendly, complete with pastel peachy tones, pops of greenery and wooden picnic tables. The menu is equally as delightful, with dishes such as the breakfast gnocchi with mushroom ragu, bacon crumb, pecorino, free-range poached egg, pepper and truffle oil. Oh, and puppies are more than welcome here, so be sure to bring your furry friend along for a feature on your ‘gram.
A visit to Piggyback Cafe will have your ‘gram soaked in colour, with rainbow coffee, super shakes and loaded croissants. The Jindalee spot is the perfect spot to kick back with a coffee and enjoy the chilled atmosphere and delicious food such as their Piggy Croissant, a fresh croissant with juicy pork belly served with sweet chilli scrambled eggs and blistered cherry tomatoes. Don’t forget to grab a snap of their unicorn hot chocolate, complete with whipped cream, mixed lollies and sprinkles!
A snap at Industry beans is sure to be a hit with your followers. The venues, located in Newstead and Adelaide St, are drop-dead gorgeous, with minimalist vibes and a cool white exterior. Despite being an Instagram sensation, Industry Beans is also delivering top-notch coffee and great quality bites, such as their avocado smash with whipped ricotta, sunrise lime gel, beetroot dust, green tea salt and sourdough. We recommend booking in advance, as this place is seriously popular!
This beloved Fish Lane spot is one of our favourites for their speciality coffee, great service and cute interior. Their coffee is the perfect way to start your day, with beans supplied by Five Senses, known for their unique and original blends. In addition to renowned single-origin batch brews and pour-overs, Only is also here to provide the perfect morning pick-me-up, with their range of pastries and baked treats.
This list wouldn’t be complete without a mention of Paw Paw Cafe, any foodie and Insta-lover’s dream. The Woolloongabba cafe is famous for their vibrant decor and menu of inventive brunch specials with an exotic twist. You can expect flavoursome dishes that are easy on the eyes and the tastebuds, such as Pawpaw’s signature hash with potato hash, poached eggs, turmeric hummus, smashed avocado, haloumi, beetroot relish and dukkha.
Kiki is a very welcome addition to the up-and-coming Fish Lane Town Square precinct. From the brains behind Rick Shores and Little Valley, the spot is set to be a hit, dishing up all the good stuff including Bellissimo coffee, takeaway treats and banh mis all day long. You can also find tiki cocktails, margaritas, wine and Asian-inspired snacks as the evening rolls around. We’re there!
Pink paradise El Rosa is any Instagrammer’s dream. Their sun-drenched courtyard, pastel pink hues and family of pots, plants and cacti are the ideal spot to snap your next Insta shot. And if you’re after a pretty prop, go for one of their pastel lattes or marshmallow-topped hot chocolates, which taste just as good as they look.
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get snackin’ and snappin’!
