Eat your way through Brisbane's best breakfasts

If there is one thing that gets a Brisbane local out of bed on a Saturday morning, it’s the promise of a good breakfast.

Fortunately we’re spoilt with amazing cafe choices here, but rather than keep the secret to ourselves, we've decided to share our favourite Brisbane breakfasts. Read on to discover which cafes and restaurants do some of the best breakfasts in Brisbane.

King Arthur Cafe, Fortitude Valley – Head here for a creative breakfast menu that pleases both healthy eaters and sweet-treat fans using locally sourced and ethically produced food.
Artie & Mai, Albion – Classic choices done well with gourmet produce. Try the potato and leek hash cakes.

Lemon ricotta hotcakes Little Loco

Little Loco, New Farm – if you’ve got an intolerance, Little Loco will sort you out with vegan, vegetarian and paleo-inspired options. The ricotta hotcakes are beyond fluffy.
85 Miskin Street, Toowong – Treat yourself to four decadent courses at Brisbane’s only breakfast degustation. Think fine dining with coffee.
Pablo, New Farm – A classic choice on Brisbane’s breakfast scene. Dive into a dish of smashed peas, zucchini and mint lavished over ricotta-smeared sourdough.
Naim, Paddington – Inspired by marketplaces of the Middle East, treat your tastebuds to an exotic twist on classics. 
Bowen Arrow, Bowen Hills – All-day breakfast is music to our ears. Tuck into a bagel or something more substantial paired with a Dramanti coffee.
Gerard’s Bistro, Fortitude Valley – Transforming into a restaurant and bar in the evening, Gerard’s has a unique breakfast offering. Try the Baghdad eggs or rosewater rice pudding.

Breakfast at Campos Coffee

Campos Coffee, Fortitude Valley – The coffee is good, and so is the food. This cafe is tucked behind the roastery off Wandoo St. The menu changes monthly.
Miss Kay’s, Brisbane City – More than just your average burger bar, Miss Kay’s serves up a full breakfast menu. Go all out with waffles, fried chicken, ice-cream, bacon and maple syrup.
Plenty, West End – Located in a warehouse decked out in timber and teal is Plenty. Indulge happily in a menu that celebrates locally-grown produce with its "know your farmer" philosophy. 
Kettle & Tin, Paddington – Another all-day dining, try the staple pumpkin, walnut and feta smash with balsamic glaze, or bacon and egg waffle with mustard maple syrup.
Pearl Cafe, Woolloongabba – Set within Woolloongabba’s antique precinct, Pearl suits the area to a tee with old-world charm and a menu with a modern twist. Don’t pass up the housemade butterscotch milkshake.

Spring Hill Deli

Spring Hill Deli, Spring Hill – This family-run deli and cafe offers delicious local deli items and delectable homemade food. Tuck into a sloppy Joe for breakfast.
Workshop Co, Redcliffe – Drive out to Redcliffe to be greeted with great coffee and Instagram-worthy food.
Wild Canary, Brookfield – It’s a cafe set within a garden centre in the far-west suburbs of Brisbane. We probably shouldn’t give this secret away, but it is one worth spreading. They do some of the prettiest cakes.
Billy Kart Kitchen, Annerley – Paying homage to the billy karts that glided through Annerley in the 1950s, the old cornerstore serves a menu that is produce-driven with simple with delicious dishes such as Aussie Asian eggs with king prawns, bacon and chilli.  
Doug & Pearl, Cleveland – Tucked beneath a wide verandah, Doug & Pearl offers fine dining amid a setting of rustic charm. The eggs benny is served with a tasty pulled ham.

Hops Scotch and Beans

Smoked Paprika, Bardon – This unexpected gem serves up breakfast classics with a twist. Try the kale and pumpkin on zucchini fritters with caramelised onion, Danish fetta, poached eggs and bernaise sauce.
Plum Tucker, Red Hill – Plum Tucker has made everyone’s favourite eggs benny healthy – with a cauliflower sauce rather than hollandaise. The corn bread with avo smash is also a winner.
Little Larder, New Farm – A favourite of New Farm locals, be sure to order the French toast pancakes.
