The round-up: all-day breakfast spots in Brisbane
The weekend is for taking it slow – we can’t be blamed if we want to sleep in. We shouldn’t be punished for enjoying our days off by missing the best meal of the day – breakfast! Thankfully, there are some cafes that are forgiving to us sleepyheads, offering all-day breakfast menus so bed heads can enjoy an eggs benny or for dusty revellers that are craving the restorative properties of bacon.
Billy Kart West End: Wandering around West End is a great way to spend a Saturday and Billy Kart can get you fuelled up with its iconic Aussie Asian eggs with bacon, Skull Island tiger prawn and deep fried egg.
Morning After: If you’ve woken up with a heavy head and some regrets, don’t let the fact that it’s after midday get you down further. Morning After has made a name for itself by offering all-day breakfasts that will put you back on track.
The Moray Cafe: One of New Farm’s finest breakfast haunts whips up dishes such as bacon stacks, Sicilian scrambled eggs, and quinoa breakfast puddings on the regular all day.
Sourced Grocer: If we are starting the day late after a night on the town, the best thing for us is usually a breakfast of healthy options that won’t delay our recovery. Sourced Grocer prides itself on its menu of day starters made from fresh ingredients, including the likes of bircher muesli with Bee One Third honey and more.
Pablo: Breakfast until 2:30 pm means that Pablo is a great spot for New Farm locals to get their fix of crushed avocado on sourdough later than usual.
jak + hill: Enjoy a leisurely breakfast until 3:00 pm at Jak + Hill. Choose from messy eggs, smoked pulled-pork omelette or roast pumpkin bruschetta.
King Arthur: Venture a little bit up James Street and you’ll come across King Arthur, one of the best spots for a coffee and feed in town. If charred sweet potato and mushroom, French toast and bacon sandwiches sound like dishes you could go for, King Arthur is waiting.
