Di Bella coffee

Brisbaneites are fiercely loyal to local coffee providers, and for good reason: our homegrown guys churn out some damn good stuff! Di Bella Coffee started roasting beans in the Brissie ‘burbs in 2002, and their products are now available in a slew of cafes around the city (not to mention from their own...

Koko Black’s new Summer Menu

Koko Black, you devil. You first lured me in years ago, in Melbourne. Your hot chocolates are just so stupidly good. And now? Now you had to introduce the limited-time summer Oasis range, with concoctions like the Salted Caramel Iced Chocolate ($8.50):   The iced chocolate is made to a traditional Belgian...

Raw Pawpaw

Lately you can’t swing a cat without hitting an overflowing acai bowl out of someone’s hand. I love me some acai, so I don’t really mind, BUT I love my beef and hot meals as well. Amazingly there is a place in Brisbane that will give you sweet refreshing smoothies and...

Atticus Finch, Paddington

I don’t remember jack from high school. For instance: in grade 8 or 9 we read To Kill a Mockingbird. We did essays on it. I’m pretty sure I smashed out an A or at least a B+ for mine. So you would think I’d remember the messages and the themes at the...

Picnic at Camp Hill

I hate that dilemma where a dish like muesli or yogurt sounds appealing, but you’ve got a slightly raging appetite that morning and know that a bowl of nuts and oats just ain’t gonna cut it. Enter: the side dish. That’s right folks, I solved this problem that has plagued...

Habitat West End Opens

I love a good beard. Proof: D had very strict rules not to shave for at least a week prior to our wedding. I would have preferred longer, but he complained of itchiness. I guess not making him go any longer was my wedding present to him. So what do beards...

Rogue Bar and Bistro

Some big, BIG things happened on the weekend. First: I baked brownies and miraculously didn’t eat the entire pan in one day. Second: We found our new FAVOURITE breakfast place in Brisbane. Rogue Bar and Bistro at Newstead is plonked in the middle of a bunch of nondescript buildings (we drove...

Little Paw Paw Opens at Kedron

Northsiders rejoice! Pawpaw cafe, the Woolloogabba hot spot known for their breakfasts, has a new wee baby sister in Kedron. Although they opened their doors a couple of months ago, Little Pawpaw had their official launch party last night, complete with mini “brinner” canapes, wee cakes and sweets, and tasty...

Moose & Gibson

Do we have any Block fans out there? I’m sure there are. If you’re like me, it’s difficult to go out on a Sunday night because you’ll sit there the whole time going, “Did it record? What if it didn’t. What if it’s not recording.” When The Block is in...

White Jam

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love astro turf, and those who hate it. It’s a seemingly innocent thing, but astro turf can really get some people fired up. D hates it. His common reaction when we see it is to roll his eyes and...
