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

Willow Cafe brings inventive brunch bites and beach vibes to Balmoral

While we love packing the car and making an impromptu trek to the Sunshine Coast or Gold Coast every odd weekend, sometimes our hectic lifestyles prevent us from getting our recommended dose of surf, sand and sun. We can always make time for brunch, though, which is great because Willow Cafe, Balmoral's new resident, has brought a little bit of the beach to Riding Road. With a coastal-chic interior and a menu of eats that look almost too good to eat, we reckon this brand-new noshery will be a favourite for folks seeking a dash of relaxed coastal charm. more

Pavement Whispers: Inter/Section – a new laneway hub from the Coffee Anthology team – set to open in Brisbane City

When pioneering specialty coffee cafe Coffee Anthology announced on Instagram earlier this week that it was moving, the caffeinated blood of its sizeable fanbase likely ran cold. Thankfully, the esteemed dispensary isn't moving far from its long-time abode on Margaret Street – it's heading to Charlotte Street where it will anchor Inter/Section, a brand-new laneway hub connecting streets, concepts and people with coffee, pastries and hospitality. Here's what we know ... more

The music of Moulin Rouge takes centre stage for Spectacular, Spectacular at The Fortitude Music Hall

When we think of the best movie soundtracks of all time, Baz Luhrmann's films all rank high on our list. Our personal favourite is his 2001 masterpiece Moulin Rouge, a fever-dream of fantastical theatre, heart-bleeding romance and musical extravagance starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor as star-crossed lovers. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film that continues to dazzle and get viewers dancing, the fine folk at The Fortitude Music Hall have reimagined Moulin Rouge's soundtrack as a live-music show. On Friday December 10, some of Brisbane’s most treasured local musicians will be taking the stage for an evening of love ballads, glamour and bohemian brilliance! more
