A friend from work recently let me know (haha) about this cafe in Clayfield, so on Ekka day we popped by for lunch!
Let Minnow Cafe is easily the cosiest and cutest cafe I’ve been in a while. LOVE their well-considered branding and the adorable minnow illustrations.

The Big Blue
With poached eggs, bacon, avocado, spinach, house spanish beans, haloumi, grilled chorizo and smoked paprika on a potato & chive waffle. Was super psyched crunchy delicious waffle is actually savoury (have tried a few savoury waffles that was still too sweet for me)

IMG_0340

The Crumbed Barra
Panko crumbed barramundi, house dill tartar, tomato & red onion salsa and house coleslaw. I chose the brioche bun, and loved the kick from the hot sauce

IMG_0349

The fried chicken and waffles
Panko crumbed chicken on a potato & chive waffle with charred corn salsa, avocado, sticky chilli sauce, sesame seeds, fried shallots, Japanese mayo & garnished with herbs (the chicken was so tender!)
