Pause in Samford is a multi-faceted destination in Brisbane’s rural fringe that boasts a varied range of offerings from food to retail, styling itself as a place to linger and relax to your heart’s content. Anyone that enjoys food will tell you that the best meals are never rushed. Sure, scoffing down on a scrumptious dish is one thing, but true magic is crafted with care and that is especially the case at Pause. The kitchen follows a ‘slow food’ approach to cooking, with a menu of classic European fare built around quality ingredients with engrossing flavour profiles that deserve exploring. Pause’s specialty is its ‘Leave it to the Chef’ degustation dinners, where diners sample a procession of dishes based on ingredients that are seasonal and abundant. In addition to this, Pause also hosts ‘Focus Nights’, where a menu is built around a particular ingredient and a matching wine. The cocktail bar takes a similarly detailed approach to the drinks, with local produce used in the creation of delightful concoctions, which is complemented by a range of local and international wines. While on site, be sure to check out the crystals, minerals and handcrafted jewellery at Feel Crystals and Jewellery.
