The best of Brisbane?

At the end of this week, a British friend will be joining me in Brisbane for a couple of weeks, perhaps longer. As the local, I need to show of the best of this city. They've been to Brisbane before so I don't need to start at square one. I want to show the bars and restaurants that make it fun, the day trips that highlight a weekend, the cafes that jazz up your morning. 

All without breaking the bank - so 5-star restaurants are off the list. 

Some of places I'm thinking of showing off are:

  • Tipplers' Tap
  • Scratch (already been and liked it)
  • Canvas
  • Green Beacon (depending on when it opens)
  • Sixes and Sevens
  • The R.E. - for sentimental University Days reasons.
  • Lady Lammington
  • SuperWhatnot
  • Archive
  • Black Star Coffee
  • Saabi on Manson
  • Kettle and Tin
  • Bishamon
  • Ole
  • Harajuku Gyoza
  • Pearl Cafe
  • Soul Bistro
(why is this list so short? I must drink out and eat in all the time.)

Days out
  • Mooloolaba
  • Wynnum
  • Maleny
  • Gold Coast Hinterland

I need to flesh out my list. There are dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars opening in Brisbane that I haven't got around to visiting yet. This might be the time.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received!


  1. Wagaya? Trang Restaurant? Mondo Organics? Verve? Amphora? Anouk, Piaf, Little Greek Taverna, Beccofino, Salt Restaurant, Fusion 54, Caravanserai, Yum Cha,

    GOMA? The Powerhouse (including the bar...)?

    As lame as it sounds, Lone Pine is actually an excellent experience for a foreigner, especially if they haven't been to Australia before.

  2. They've been to Lone Pine and got the requisite photo with a Koala. Excellent suggestions, thank you!
