The Jam Pantry

One of our favourite brunch destinations was Comfort at My Table at Milton!
Foodies flock from afar to indulge in the generous servings of delicious comfort foods.
When the former owners, Gideon & Naomi Zavackas (of Nims xx) sold the cafe to focus on their line of
jams & preserves, we collectively sighed and waved goodbye to those gorgeous deep pan omelettes.
After searching for a kitchen to produce the Nims xx bottled magic, they stumbled upon a wonderful new venue
that could double up as a cafe!

The Jam Pantry is housed in a gorgeous old Queensland house,
in a retro French country theme!

A very intriguing menu featuring dragon fruit in a lot of savoury dishes!
The menu is produce and season driven, so pop in from time to time to taste new awesome flavours!

The Gettin’ Place!
A cosy, hole-in-the-wall cafe, situated off the busier section of James Street.
A perfect, tranquil little spot purveying freshly-made toasted bites and silky Toby’s Estate coffees.
It’s also a gallery space featuring local talents each month!
Currently showing work by the awesome Ben Ely from REGURGITATOR
(gosh I love his illustrations they are soooo quirky).

Can’t think of a better way to spend a  Saturday afternoon,
lazing out the back in their zen garden with a cuppa and a book!

The Fish House

We popped down to the coast for some birthday festivities,
kicking the day off with a glorious meal at The Fish House!
This fine dining establishment with an inconspicuous, red brick exterior
and simple branding, was a mind-blowing dining experience.

IMG_9429

We were enveloped by its grand, distinguished atmosphere,
The Fish House’s elegance richly contrasts the casual Gold Coast vibe.

and other fruits of the sea!

Despite wanting to try the whole fish (we witnessed some crazy skilled de-boning)
it was too big a portion for 2 to share!

So we decided on:

Live dry opened Pacific Oysters from Coffin Bay
Comes with an adorable little tub of Tabasco!

IMG_9418

Breaded New Zealand Scampi
HIGHLY recommend this dish. Light & crunchy, the scampi was perfectly cooked,
with the panko retaining much of its juices!

Thin Spaghetti w Bug Meat, Tomato, Chilli & white Wine

 We lounged by the vast bi-fold windows and took in the spectacular view.

Can’t wait for my next visit!
