Your guide to Sunday lunching

Sundays are for eating.

Whether you’re going for an all-out feed, an all-you-can-eat feast, or a suburban family feel, we’ve found the Sunday special menu to suit. 

Gauge | South Brisbane

You know it for its boundary-pushing combos, you’ll love it for its Sunday lunch menu! One of Gauge’s chefs takes over the creative reins every Sunday, plating up a one-off menu for just $55. As one of Brisbane’s top spots, you can expect unreal morsels like ox tongue skewers with togarashi and barbecued prawns with dashi bearnaise, but we recommend keeping an eye on their Insta for the upcoming menus.

Florence | Camp Hill

One word (kind of), three letters: BYO! Sunday lunch at Florence is an in-demand affair, and for only $50 for an absolute mountain of wholesome food served up share-style like potato pasta with scallop and corn sauce, creme fraiche and roe, and porchetta with salsa verde, this suburban spot is well worth a visit! Word of advice: follow Florence on Insta to see the Sunday menu when it’s posted, and remember to book – this one always fills up quickly!

King Tea | Paddington

If you’re less of a pancake-brunch person and more of a… dumpling-brunch person, King Tea’s Sunday all-you-can-eat brunch is one royally good time to add to your agenda. From 10am to 11:30 every Sunday, sit down to 1.5 hours of all-you-can-eat Chinese-style dumplings and small plates featuring authentic Sichuan flavours. How many do you do?

Chu The Phat | South Brisbane

Gather the gang and get ready to chu your way through a Sunday banquet for only $30 a head! We’re talking plates like prawn toast, wagyu dumplings, and grilled prawn sandwiches, with free iced tea to enjoy in between cocktails!

La Lune Wine Co | South Brisbane

Seeking a spot of Euro-style Sunday dining and plenty of wine to match? Look no further than La Lune Wine Co in the trendy Fish Lane. While prices vary around $50, their Sunday set lunch menu is always great value, with optional wine pairing also a go. Past dishes include spanner crab with macadamia milk and squid ink cracker and confit duck salad with squash, peach and hazelnut. 

Saké | CBD

Soar like an Eagle Street Pier at Saké’s weekend lunch, where you’ll enjoy a bites banquet including karaage bao, salmon sashimi tacos, and teriyaki lamb chop with two hours of rosé, Japanese rosé cocktails, Aperol spritz, selected cocktails and seasonal G&T bowls for just $99.

Sunday, Sunday, I will be there babe.
