The round-up: Brisbane’s must-try openings of 2018

Phew, what a year it’s been! We’re only a few weeks away from the festive season and the New Year’s celebrations, but it seems like there’s still so much more to cram in before 2018 wraps up for good. Thankfully we’ve got some much-needed holiday time on the horizon, which should allow us to take a breath and look back at everything that’s happened this year. If you’ve been too busy to cast your eyes north, you might not have noticed Brisbane’s banner year in terms of new openings. Bars, cafes, hotels, restaurants – 2018 was a boom year for top-tier hospitality arrivals. If you’re planning a trip up the M1 over summer, pencil a stop or three at some of the best new openings in Brisbane over the past 12 months. more

When we heard that Bundall's The Pastry Emporium was opening a second venue a little further south, our hearts skipped a beat. Well, after a short period of anticipation, the time has finally come – The Pastry Emporium officially open its doors in Mermaid Waters today (Thursday October 12). Friends, this is what dreams are made of. more
