Smashing! Pop-up burger concept Junior Classic Cheeseburger is now flipping in Woolloongabba

It's hard to ignore a craving for burgers. The urge to sink one's teeth into a juicy handful is near impossible to ignore, so our advice is to just go with the flow. Perhaps the flow will take you to Junior Classic Cheeseburger, a new pop-up burger spot slinging sizzling bites that will have you seriously tossing up between double or triple-patty stacks. It's open every Friday, so if you're looking to step out for a fun lunch, pop this one on your list. more

It’s here – Agnes Bakery opens the doors to its anticipated permanent home on James Street

Agnes Bakery was born from necessity, but stayed around because of popularity. When the city shut down in the wake of COVID-19 restrictions, 'pivot' became the word of the day and experimental concepts started proliferating around town. Of all the operators that swivelled in order to keep their businesses afloat, few garnered such a rapturous public response as Agnes' pop-up woodfired bakery and bottle shop. The bakery's delightfully crusty loaves of malted sourdough, cinnamon-coated doughnuts and charred and flaky Basque cheesecakes quickly cemented themselves as must-have items, and its smoked butter became a thing of legend. More than a year on and several pop-up appearances later, Agnes Bakery is celebrating the opening of its permanent woodfired dispensary on James Street today, Thursday October 21. There will be danishes, kouign-amanns, choux buns and cakes by the slice – there… more

New digs, same fig – The Smug Fig unveils its new Stones Corner cafe and social bar

Anyone that has moved house or apartment knows that packing up your life and shifting it elsewhere can be a real pain in the backside. Imagine, then, packing up a cafe – one deeply entrenched in its local community – and relocating it a couple of suburbs over. That's exactly the process that the team behind The Smug Fig has just completed. The East Brisbane-born cafe has just moved to Stones Corner, taking the opportunity to elevate and enhance its look and menu, reopening as one part cafe, one part neighbourhood bar. more

Meet Spread – the Camp Hill pizzeria from the salumi-savvy team behind Say Cheese

When you think about it, an antipasti platter has almost all the right ingredients one needs to make a primo pizza. Meat, cheeses, vegetables – the only thing missing is dough and a dollop of sauce! The crew behind Say Cheese – one of Brisbane's most beloved grazing table, platter box and gift-delivery services – is spreading its wings, securing a site of its own on Bennetts Road in Camp Hill that serves as Say Cheese's headquarters by day and doubles as a slick suburban pizzeria by night. Spread is taking a simple but considered approach to its slices, serving familiar favourites elevated with the use of gourmet cheeses, mouth-watering meats and enticing extras. more
