The Lord Lamington
Waiting for a flight at Brisbane Airport’s domestic terminal has become far more enjoyable ever since The Lord Lamington landed. Named after a former Governor of Queensland, the multi-faceted eatery and bar was conceived with the Sunshine State in mind. Locality is key here – the vast majority of produce has been sourced between the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, taking full advantage of the food bowl within arm’s reach. The Lord Lamington is servicing early birds with a breakfast offering featuring classic options such as eggs benedict, bacon and eggs, and omelettes, but then shifts towards well-priced pub-style favourites (think buffalo wings, share platters, salt and pepper calamari, pork belly bites) in the afternoon and evening. If you like to linger until gates open, The Lord Lamington can make the wait bearable with its selection of local craft beers such as Burleigh Brewing and Ballistic Beer Co. One final specialty worth mentioning is the signature lamington range, which gives travellers with a sweet tooth the chance to savour several variations, including the Nutella baklava and red velvet varieties.
