Snug, Brisbane’s best (and busiest) new cafe, has launched its Korean-inspired brunch menu

If you've cruised down Chatsworth Road in Coorparoo at some point in the past seven weeks, you've likely seen crowds clustered around an olive-hued shopfront.

The cosy venue has been consistently packed since it opened over Easter, with throngs gathering for cups of ST ALi coffee and silky hojicha lattes. The crowds are set to congregate again with the launch of Snug's Korean-inspired brunch offering, which boasts the likes of soft pretzels, scrambled egg-drop sandwiches and omurice with prawns. more
