Cheap Eats: Picnic Edition

Ahh, for the love of picnics! Name a better past time than finding a great outdoor spot and downing delicious eats with your girlfriends. This isn’t a job for the dusty bottle of vino, block of Cadbury and rug however – oh no, preparation is key to a delectable and ‘gram worthy picnic at the Bank.

Not sure what to bring? We have you covered, with our ultimate guide to cheap (and delicious!) picnic eats.

Presto Pizza and Pasta
Presto Pizza and Pasta takes authentic Italian treats to a whole new level. Think: BBQ pulled beef pizza fresh from the oven, a rich and creamy chicken carbonara and churros to finish. The best part? The service is fast, and it won’t hurt your wallet. What a picnic pleaser!

South Bank Kebab
There’s a really good reason South Bank Kebab is vouched to be the best in Brisbane! Serving up crispy and delicious flatbread stuffed with tender beef, chicken, falafel and fresh salad, you’re sure to be the picnic favourite – plus, it totally won’t break the bank!

Banh Mee Time
Banh Mee Time dishes up fresh and zesty Vietnamese food on-the-go, boasting tradition with a modern twist! Munch on a cheap Vietnamese baguette as you take in the beautiful surrounds of South Bank. Ahh, the serenity!

Magical Rice
Sushi lovers, rejoice! Our mates at Magical Rice know good roll when they make one (every. single. time). Whether its ramen, bao or teriyaki chicken that floats ya boat, they’ll have something to feed the crew! #winning

Doughnut Time
Doughnut worry about us, when we have stacks on stacks of doughnuts from the new kids on the block, Doughnut Time! These bad boys are low-cost, delicious and ready for the ‘gram in a jiffy. Run, don’t walk…

Café Lagoonas
Wondering what else to pack for your picnic? Think no further than Café Lagoona’s tasty cheap eats that are ready for you, STAT. Our top picnic pick? A few jumbo-sized burgers and fresh hot chips to share with the whole crew. #squadgoals

Fins and Feathers
With Fins and Feathers, it’s all in the name! Fish and chips is their specialty, offering fresh fish, hot chips and other mouthwatering O.G’s such as calamari and burgers, for when you’re craving a bang-for-your-buck feast the most!

Cosmos Café
No picnic basket would be good without fresh sanga’s. Cosmos Café takes this picnic staple to the next level, with their range of inexpensive gourmet sandwiches. Go on, get your hands on these before we do!
