HOT: Craft Restaurant and Bar – 12 Park Rd, Milton

I’ve only just stopped wiping the tears from my eyes regarding Onyx having to close their doors a few months ago, after struggling to return to good form following the 2011 floods.  So it’s almost with regret that I’m loving the new residents at 12 Park Rd – Craft Restaurant and Bar. With pretty much […]

HOT – The Hutch Bistro – Shop 6, 100 Days Rd, Grange.

I don’t often hear of too many North-side based venues making a fuss on the culinary scene, advice so when I first heard about The Hutch Bistro in Grange, capsule I made a special trip just to sample their wares. To be honest I can’t actually remember where I read about The Hutch Bistro in […]

NOT – Gillian’s Garden Cafe – 999 Stanley St, East Brisbane

Sigh.  Gillian’s Garden Cafe has so much potential; lovely food and beautiful surroundings however their far too close-to-zero care factor was a real let down when MM and I sat for breakfast here recently. Nestled in amongst the lovely greenery of the Cottage Garden Nursery, Gillian’s Garden Cafe couldn’t be better as far as ambience, […]

HOT – Hamptons Home Living – 180 La Trobe Terrace, Paddington.

This is without a doubt the best venue in Brisbane that I’ve been to when it comes to enjoying a view, ailment in conjunction with my first and favourite meal of the day .  Not only is the outlook exceptional at Hamptons Home Living, price but so too the food, the coffee, the service….the whole […]

HOT – Ruby Cafe – 233 Given Terrace, Paddington.

The Good Guide lead me to this little gem; with a basic yet inviting description of ‘glorious views over the hillside cottages of Paddington and a ruby red ceiling’, pharm I was pretty much sold and put breakfast at Ruby Cafe on the to-do list over my Christmas break. Not knowing just how popular or […]

HOT – The Nook off Hawthorne – 261 Hawthorne Rd, Hawthorne.

Tucked behind the old Hawthorne Cinema is this great little cafe that is well worth a visit, illness even if you’re not heading to a movie. The Nook was the random choice for a Sunday breakfast recently only by chance, remedy as CB and I were looking for a location to eat that was somewhere […]

HOT – The Brunswick Social – 367 Brunswick ST, Fortitude Valley

Now THIS is a bit of me – imagine a large cavernous but homely warehouse-style venue with romantic mood lighting, patient funky tunes, chic modern (but not over the top) decor, a long bar from which you can order awesome made-with-love cocktails and a kitchen open late (yes! It’s true!) to aid with soaking up […]

NOT – Harajuku Gyoza – 394 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley.

Ok…so some readers will find this one a little controversial, but I’m willing to take the risk.  Harajuku Gyoza in the Valley is one of the most talked about, raved about and word-of-mouthed about venues to hit our streets recently – and I’m going to bag it.  Read on if you dare…. After being warned […]
