Rosalie, Brisbane – If you love a sushi train but aren’t keen on the fast food environment of most restaurants, you’ll be in your element at Moga Izakaya & Sushi. Yes, there’s sushi paraded around on a conveyor belt for your viewing and dining pleasure but this place is a cut above. It’s a fusion of Japanese-Asian cuisine, fine dining and striking oriental interior design. [Read more…]by
Oriental beauty, breathtaking flavour
I’d like to say it’s my fine foodie radar that draws me to a neighbourhood restaurant on a Wednesday night. But it’s the fairy lights. They hang like vines from the front window – sparkling, twinkling and enticing. And I’m not the only one bewitched. The place is packed. [Read more…]by
Ripe for the food aficionado
Known as one of Brisbane’s breakfast hotspots, this unassuming little café in the heart of suburban Holland Park West delivers an exceptional fine food offering. They do a fresh and flavoursome lunch with plentiful salads, Turkish-style sandwiches, wraps and gourmet pastries. They also have a full Li’l Taste Buds Menu for the kids – too cute! But for me it’s the fresh muffins made daily. [Read more…]by
High charm by the bay
Sitting high on a cliff in the beautiful, bay side town of Shorncliffe, this charming cafe is refined and refreshing all at once. It’s home is the iconic Masonic Hall building, which offers majestic views out to Moreton Bay.
The impressive historic exterior is just the icing on the cake though, because indoors you’ll discover a delicious mix of French and European styling. And they manage to make contemporary feel cosy. [Read more…]by
Swich Espresso – by Haley!
I feel blessed to have this little suburban café within walking distance to my daughter’s kindergarten. It’s a great morning pick-me-up always served with a smile and a couple of chocolate freckles, making it the only coffee shop my daughter looks forward to visiting. I’m in love with the intimate dining room, tiny back deck overlooking a grassy make-shift car park and the old-fashioned outdoor dunny.
What’s really impressive is their range of tasty sweet and savoury loaves – homemade goodness that keeps locals coming back for more. My favourite is the pistachio & almond bread – it puts banana bread to shame! Their homemade croissants are also amazing in the morning with your caffeine fix.
Coffee can be addictive but this local café has made it even more irresistible. They use Elixir beans and Maleny milk – a winning combination. Best of all they get to know their customers and offer a reward card, so the more regular you are the more you save!
