Get cosy at The Valley’s larder-meets-wine-bar Lloyd’s General Store

In a perfect world, every street would boast some combination of three local essentials – a cafe, a bar and a delicatessen – of its own. It's wishful thinking, sure, but there's good news for locals that live on or closer to the northern end of Brunswick Street. Lloyd's General Store is a new three-in-one hotspot has just opened where Brunswick Street meets Gregory Terrace. Serving coffee and croissants by day and wine and charcuterie by night (as well as acting as a providore the entire time), Lloyd's is comfy, convenient and oh so charming. more

Good Food Month brings all-star chef reunions, yum cha high tea and one-off pop-ups to Brisbane

If we can take something positive away from the hardships that 2020 has thrown at us, it’s a galvanised appreciation for the act of dining out. While the pivot of many of our favourite foodie haunts to takeaway was admirable (and delicious), we would be lying if we said we didn’t miss the atmosphere of sitting down to a meal at a bricks-and-mortar venue with our nearest and dearest. What a concept! Returning just in time for Brisbane’s dining scene to come out of a COVID-induced hibernation, Good Food Month is taking over our city with a series of unmissable epicurean experiences this November. more
