There was a time in Brisbane when the morning-lunch crossover was fueled by a sad piece of wholemeal toast and whatever spread presented itself in the cupboard. Step aside, confusing mid-morning eats! Brunch has endured a major evolution over the past decade, to become a magnificently gluttonous and delectable menu staple.
We’ve hunted down the best brunches in South Bank for you to get your hands on.
The Charming Squire
After many years of delivering all-around heavenly dessert and dinner sustenance, The Charming Squire have recently marked themselves as the ultimate in South Bank brunches… Trust us, we’ve done the hard work and tried it for ourselves! Our top pick? The Apple Cider and Sage Fritters, served with chipotle spiced apple puree, BBQ pork and poached eggs. Get here STAT.
Next Door Kitchen and Bar
Next Door Kitchen and Bar is one of our favourite places to do breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner AND dessert. Think pancakes with banana, Nutella cream and Italian meringue, corn fritters with bacon, grilled tomato and onion jam, and honey almond granola. The disappointment is REAL if you miss out, trust us.
One of South Bank’s best-kept brunch secrets lays hidden at Southbeach Social. As a destination with a view, all of your brunch favourites (hello avo smash, goodbye mortgage!) are available every weekend. You can thank us later.
This one’s for the food-stagrammers! Denim Co. offers picture perfect, colour-laden dishes that taste just as good as they look. If we HAD to pick a must-try (the whole menu would do!) we suggest the Strawberry Choco S’more Waffles. Yep, you heard us correctly!
There’s nothing like the smell of fresh Lebanese fair on a Sunday morning. With all of Baba Ganouj’s dishes packed to the brim with flavour, this homely restaurant strikes to our brunch heart. Try the Baba Ganouj Special, a mixture of turkish bread, spinach, Kafta patty, eggs, mushrooms and hollainaise to make your taste buds dance.
