Mudgeeraba dining gem The Wine Barrel swaps riesling for Reuben crumpets and delves into breakfast
Popular local dining space The Wine Barrel has been delighting locals from the backstreets of Mudgeeraba since 2010. While share-style eats and quality drops have been plated and poured of a night time here for the past nine years, 2019 marked a new direction with the local favourite launching its first-ever breakfast trade.
Owners Warren and Michelle Carnall knew they needed to shift away from the norm to be able to capture the coast’s discerning breakfast crowd and lure them away from the coastal pockets of a morning. With that in mind, The Wine Barrel’s first breakfast menu, which runs Wednesday to Sunday, has been designed to deliver an exciting and unique spin on familiar favourites. So, instead of a traditional bacon and egg roll, you’ll get smoky 14-hour-braised pork-rib and egg bao buns topped with fried egg, avocado cream and smoked aioli.
Love your eggs Benedict? The Wine Barrel does it Reuben style, where house-made crumpets are topped with fried green tomato, sauerkraut, tender silverside beef, poached eggs and lashings of Thousand Island-style hollandaise. If you prefer to keep it meat free, opt for the house loaf topped with avocado, roast pumpkin, eggplant kasundi and pickled chilli. Sweet tooths will salivate over the cinnamon-dusted house-made jam doughnuts, while the vibrant bowl of lentil-falafel rice, spice sweet potato, haloumi, poached egg, sauteed kale and fresh coconut will satisfy your needs for all-things green. If you’re a late riser, you’re in luck – the Prosecco starts pouring from 10:00 am.
The Wine Barrel is now open for breakfast from Wednesday to Sunday 7:00 am. Location and contact details can be found over in our Stumble Guide.
