Di Bella Coffee beans 0

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...

Stokehouse Brisbane

It’s getting really hot lately, isn’t it? Well, of course it is. You live in Brisbane. Don’t act so shocked. And yet every year we complain about the heat, spending our weekends in whatever venues are air-conditioned, and trying desperately to find cool breezes. Look, I’m going to make it...

Bacon washed bourbon cocktail 0

5th Element South Bank

There’s something quite magical about bacon. It’s cheap. It tastes good. You can use it in everything from breakfast, to pizza, to doughnuts. And now, you can use it in a cocktail too. This is 5th Element’s Barrel Aged Kentucky Breakfast ($17):   That’s bacon fat-washed Woodford Reserve and house...

Habitat dinner 0

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...

Kwan brothers late night Asian interior 0

Kwan Brothers Opens

I’ve come to the realization that Damian Griffiths is like that chick from high school. You know the one – she was popular, everyone liked her, she got good grades, but she knew how to party too. She somehow ticked all of these damn scholarly boxes and still had a good time, and had...

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...

Sheraton Four Points Buffet Opens

Buffets are those kinds of things we all secretly love, but we think that admitting it will somehow show we’re gluttonous pigs. You know what? I’m not here to judge you. I say, embrace the buffet. Go forth and dive into the unlimited seafood, soup, and hot dishes. Get another...

Bay Leaf Albion Indian Delivery 0

Bay Leaf Albion

Some nights (okay, most nights), I really don’t feel like cooking. I want to get home, get into my jammies, and munch on toast while watching The Real Housewives of X.  So when the folks at Menulog contacted me to see if I wanted to try out their online takeaway website,...

Little pawpaw Kedron 1

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...

Black Bird Outside 0

Black Bird Bar & Grill

I feel I don’t appreciate the Brisbane River enough. Yes, most of the time it looks like crap. Yes, it was a bit annoying in January 2011 (and January 1974. And January 2013. Anyway…). But at night, the view is something special, even more so when you’re in the heart...
