Breakfast in Brisbane
1- Plum Tucker, Red Hill
They call it sweet avocado on toast, and it combines avocado with strawberries, organic feta, toasted pistachios and local honey.
Try it and see.
I’m sure you’ll be back for more of this delicious dish at Plum Tucker.
2- Shouk Café, Paddington
At Shouk Café, it’s just too hard to choose between the lightly sweetened honey and cardamom pannacotta with smashed baklava and pistachio Persian fairy floss and the tall Polish potato pancake stack with cream cheese, dill, pickled red onions, two poached eggs and your choice of smoked salmon, bacon, avocado or halloumi.
Have them both or share!

Wild Canary has a tranquil garden setting and is a lovely spot to start the day.

4- Billy Kart Kitchen, Annerley
How about a smoked pork hash with avocado, tahini, yoghurt, green harissa and a couple of poached eggs?
Billy Kart Kitchen is set in a refurbished corner shop in a lovely tree-lined street.
The eatery is the brainchild of Celebrity Chef Ben O’Donoghue and his wife Dee, who have successfully managed to capture the essence of an old-fashioned local store with this 80-seater eatery.
If you like beer, here’s a list of Brisbane craft beer bars that serve up decent food too.
5- Gerard’s Bistro, Fortitude Valley
The Middle Eastern influences are strong in Gerard’s Baghdad eggs, fried in cumin, garlic, mint and lemon on flatbread with tahini yoghurt.
Gerard’s Bistro is a stylish spot in Brisbane’s trendy James Street precinct.

6- Bistro C, Noosa
Besides being right on the beach, Bistro C dishes up great food and if you’re looking to breakfast in Noosa you’ll also enjoy the stunning view.
The toasted almond, oat and quinoa granola acai berry sorbet with banana and blueberries topped with local Kenilworth honey-yogurt is so pretty it’s almost a crime to eat it.
Been there before? Here’s a list of other cool Noosa restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Best Breakfast in Cairns
7- Caffiend, Cairns
They call it French toast but what you get is house-made banana and walnut bread, caramelised banana, coconut gelato, coconut caramel sauce, dehydrated raspberries and strawberries topped with toasted coconut.
It’s just one of the items on Caffiend’s mouth-wateringly scrumptious menu.

Best Breakfast in Bundaberg
8- Indulge, Bundaberg
Their bacon and eggs look too good to eat but for something different try the Japanese breakfast.
Okonomiyaki Japanese pancake with smokey bacon, local prawns, smoked chicken, shallots, cabbage, pickled ginger, Okonomi BBQ sauce, kewpie mayo and roast sesame – no need to say more.
The ingredients at Indulge are sourced from local growers.
Best Breakfast Gold Coast
9- Paddock Bakery, Gold Coast
Dippy Eggs served in an egg carton with a side of toast soldiers and other beaut bits.
Or, munch on their wood fire sourdough bread which is baked daily on site.
Paddock Bakery is definitely somewhere to put on your list when visiting the Gold Coast.

Best Breakfast Palm Cove
10- Nu Nu Restaurant, Palm Cove
Hard choice between the mud crab omelette, greens, ginger caramel and white pepper broth or the Spiced pineapple and coconut cream soaked muesli, Daintree vanilla, mango, seasonal fruits & toasted coconut.
Nu Nu Restaurant’s location on the beach at Palm Cove is hard to beat.
