Brisbane's best brownies
Move aside ice-cream, cookies and cakes – it’s Brisbane’s brownies that are the real deal when it comes to satisfying a sweet tooth craving.
Get ready for the inevitable sugar high.
Chester Street Bakery, various locations
From the creative mind that gifted Brisbane with Doughnut Time and Mister Fitz, Chester Street Bakery takes everyone’s favourite lollies, cookies and sweets and reinvents them into a magical brownie – and it’s damn good! The Mint & Oreo and Chocolate Freckle brownies loaded with chewy chocolatey goodness are the real winners here.
Dello Mano, various locations
Rumour has it Ashton Kutcher had little foil-wrapped squares flown to Paris for his birthday. Various city locations are popular for the original decadent brownie beautifully hand-crafted and packaged in bite sized portions. Made with real Belgian chocolate for the best flavour profile, these luxury brownies are a labour of love and world-renowned. Best of all, they come in a stack of flavours.
Fridays just got a whole lot sweeter – it’s Brownie Day at award-winning patisserie Flour & Chocolate. Here they don’t just do classic chocolate, but also flourless and as blondies too! Keep an eye on Flour & Chocolate’s social media for changing brownie flavours of the week. If the raspberry and cheesecake brownie or the flourless raspberry hazelnut praline one pop up, drop everything - they are worth it.
I Heart Brownies, Brisbane City & Fortitude Valley
The I Heart Brownies bakery is a 100 per cent gluten-free zone. These heart-shaped treats are made from scratch with whole-food alternatives featuring proudly grown Queensland sugar canes. There are no emulsifiers, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours in these brownies, just pure cocoa goodness made with love. Perfectly crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside, find them brownies at Wintergarden, Jan Powers Farmers Markets, or at the main bakery in Ann St (Fortitude Valley).
Jocelyn’s Provisions, Fortitude Valley & Albion
Tucked off of trendy James St in the Valley and at its big digs in Albion, Jocelyn’s is a visual feast of the most stunning treats for everyday and special occasions. The classic triple chocolate brownie (cocoa, dark chocolate, and white chocolate buttons) are a local favourite, but her fairer-coloured sister, the white chocolate and crunchy macadamia nut blondie is not to be ignored!
Malt, Brisbane City
Finish your fine dining experience at Malt with the ultimate decadence. Yes, leave room for dessert – this restaurant is well known for its brownie. Think rich chocolate textures, salted caramel and honeycomb coming together.
Noosa Chocolate Factory, Brisbane City
Amy’s brownies are home-style brownies just like your grandma might have baked (that is if she was an experienced chocolatier with access to Noosa Chocolate Factory’s 77 per cent dark cacao). These home-baked flat, thin, gooey treats are delivered daily and priced at just $4.
Wilde Kitchen, Teneriffe
Wilde Kitchen proves that eating clean doesn’t necessarily mean boring. Your tastebuds won’t even notice that Wilde Kitchen's paleo brownie is gluten and dairy free. That pretty much qualifies as salad. We'll take two.
