Smug Fig

I’m feeling pretty smug about The Smug Fig – a bright foodie retreat nestled amongst the lush plants of the Cottage Garden Nursery, where the greatest joys in life meets – brunching, gardening and shopping!

Extraction Artisan Coffee

 Extraction Artisan Coffee
We visited this coffee haven a few weeks ago and found ourselves haunting the space every weekend since!
Hidden in an industrial hub of Slacks Creek (like most fabulous things in life it is really quite hidden – we got lost despite Google maps),
this roastery & cafe is serving up some of the best brunches and coffees in Brisbane.

A vast warehouse space with cosy nests of mismatched furnitures

I’m seriously addicted to their cold drip

Smashed avo on a fluffy pumpkin bread with goats curd and pumpkin puree (how gorgeous is the plating!)

The breakfast board- chevapchichi (a delicious skinless sausage), sauteed kale, haloumi, braised field mushrooms,
oxheart tomato w. red pepper relish and Turkish bread

We got a side of extremely silky scrambled eggs (YAS!)

The Apo

Recently I’ve been spending a lot of weekends at The Apo – am very impressed by their creative culinary inventions!
Another successful establishment from the Moubment Group, this industrial space perched at the entrance of Bakery Lane is nothing short of amazing.

The Apo pays tribute to the heritage listed building which used to house an apothecaries’ hall.
A lofty, minimalistic interior with exposed bricks and Scandinavian inspired furniture.
