Southbank, Brisbane Cafes and restaurants situated in Brisbane’s Southbank Parklands have generally been a disappointing affair: over-priced, sluggish service and average food.

With possibly the most perfect location of any café, Bistro C is a popular place. Situated on the beach at Noosa Heads you can quite literally step from your table onto the sand and into the clear blue water. And we did. Three days in a row in fact.

West End, Brisbane – When I want comfy couches, dappled sunlight, gentle music, quiet service and curiosities galore to go with my breakfast, Depo at West End is the place for me.  Depo can’t be typecast as the introvert’s paradise though, as with its fully stocked bar, gold glittery wall and late hours, it easily transforms into whatever I need it to be.

A Little Bit of Paris
