Eats Alley + Hello Breakfast | X-Cargo

Brisbane’s open-air "grown-up playground”, X-Cargo, is saying hello to breakfast with their yum-yum-yummy breakfast menu! We’re talking about to-die-for milk buns (my personal fave is the Brisket milk bun #OhLordYes), meatball subs and a killer smashed avo + coffee combo deal.

One of Brissy's best all day breakfast has graced us with a new autumn menu! At Anouk, each meal is attentively crafted, and we promise you, every bite will satisfy. We're talking about a menu that features brioche french toast with vanilla verjuice roast pear, cinnamon mascarpone and pecan crumble and Bae: open bacon, avocado, egg burger on brioche, salad greens, sriracha aioli, chilli chutney and fries (we're drooling just thinking about this one!).

Salon De Co

Revolutionising the world with their creative flair, Salon De Co not only echos hotel dining seen in New York and London, will have you indulging in delectable dishes that bring together fun, modern tastes with a homely twist. With flamed grilled wagyu beef burgers with buttermilk onion rings and nibbles like Beetroot, chickpea, avo, jalapeno tacos this place is definitely a dining destination.
