What to eat and drink this weekend in Brisbane

This weekend is all about mum.

This weekend has got it all, foodie friends! Celebrate your favourite Mexican sips and snacks this weekend as Cinco de Mayo takes over Brisbane, and if you’re (still) looking for ways to spoil mum this Mother’s Day, we’ve got you covered there too. 


Gourmet | Taste of Spain at The Croft House | CBD 

The month of May is jam-packed with epic foodie events, and our pick for this weekend is The Croft House’s Taste of Spain as part of Dine BNE City. 

Designed to be shared, this sensational tapas for two includes seafood paella with King Prawns, squid, mussels, chorizo, and cherry tomatoes, parma ham arancini, and a glass of Tempranillo each. Perfect for you and your mum! 

Bookings are essential, so get in quick.

Hot tip: The Croft House is also open for breakfast and barista-made coffee! 

Gourmand | Raspberry heart doughnut from Nodo | Newstead 

Love comes in all forms… and we can’t get enough of Nodo’s raspberry heart doughnut. 

Available this Saturday and Sunday, just in time for Mother’s Day, indulge your mum (and yourself) with this decadent chocolate and raspberry donut, topped with blackout heart cake, raspberry coulis and freeze-dried berries. Y-U-M!

Your mum will love it. Go on, pre-order yours ASAP!

Hot tip: One is never enough… make sure you order a few. 



Gourmet | Candyman cocktail at Comuna Cantina | CBD 

Sweet, sugar, candyman! If you want a taste of noughties nostalgia, Comuna Cantina’s Candy Man cocktail will do the trick. 

Topped with freshly cut strawberries and a rim lined with sprinkles (!), this vibrant cocktail will brighten up your night (and also look really awesome on your Instagram feed)!

Hot tip: The cauliflower bites are to die for! 

Gourmand | Cinco de Mayo frozen margarita at El Camino | King Street 

If you’re te-quilling for sippable drinks this weekend, you can’t go past El Camino’s Cinco de Mayo margaritas. 

Swing by this weekend and try their three limited edition ‘Ritas – served either on the rocks or frozen to perfection. Get fruity with passionfruit paloma and yuzu watermelon, or spice it up with their mango jalapeno variation. Delish!

Hot tip: The popcorn chicken tacos are a must!
