Saint Laura in Highgate Hill is a charming local eatery that is all about bringing together the community through good food. With a menu of fresh dishes made from seasonal produce, patrons are encouraged to come in and linger as the chefs whip up each meal in the open kitchen. The Saint Laura team aim to make everything in house, including its lemon curd, thyme jam and pear crumble. Other standout dishes include the Vannella handcrafted burrata with tomato, basil and sourdough, the charcuterie board with salumi, sopressa, bresaola, caperberries and brie, and the stuffed brown mushrooms with roast pumpkin, chive and goats curd. Coffee and tea drinkers are equally catered for, with pours from Veneziano coffee and Rabbit Hole Tea (only available in Brisbane at Saint Laura) on offer.
