Boutiques and Burgers in Brisbane City
Are you the no-fuss, no-nonsense kind of person? Check out our round up of the best burgers in Brisbane City. The City is the ultimate burger precinct. Sure, we may not be ‘fully qualified’ to make that statement, but we’re a team based on experiences and we've certainly done the legwork. After you have satisfied yourself with one (or two!) of these juicy morsels, we have the best way to burn off the excess energy—shopping! Wander through Brisbane’s boutiques, from Optiko to Felicity Boevink Millinery, and experience what Brisbane has to offer.
Brisbane locals cannot stay away from this laneway gem. It can be a little difficult to find but when you do, it’s definitely worth it. Chomp into the popular Shaolin Chicken Burger, Brooklyn Cheeseburger or highly favoured Uptown Funk Burger with beef, Swiss and American cheddar, gorgonzola, caramelised onions and bacon.
Straight from the west coast of California comes Miss Kay’s, sporting all the qualities a real American burger should. The classic cheese burger is always a winner or you can go full Yankee and get the Mac Daddy, a burger filled with a beef patty and mac n’ cheese. Carb binging goals.
With humble beginnings in the Boundary Street Markets, Charboys have opened a permanent CBD store. Keeping the menu short and classic means no room for frills but these burgers are anything but ordinary. Our go-to choice is the classic cheeseburger—an oldie but a goodie—with wagyu beef, american cheddar, signature sauce, hydroponic lettuce, tomatoes, onions, ketchup and mustard, on a brioche bun.
Can they live up to the Cali name? The extensive menu certainly does with classic cheeseburgers, a chilli cheeseburger for spice fanatics and the signature Santa Monica burger with pineapple (controversial, but it definitely works in this case!) and bacon bits.
Take yourself off the street and down the lane to find this hidden treasure, secretly serving some of the best burgers in town. Part of the award-winning Urbane group, expect Wagyu, Wagyu and more Wagyu in the limited but delicious burger options. There’s even something on the menu for our vego friends.
This joint’s calling card may be buffalo wings, but they also nail burgers. You'll find a classic cheeseburger, pulled pork burger, buffalo fried chicken burger and a vegetarian burger that many a carnivore has succumbed to, the breaded camembert burger.
Eyes are the windows to the soul. Well, that’s what they say anyway. Decorate your windows with Optiko’s unique and eclectic collection of eyewear. Optiko is located in the Tattersall Arcade and offers a premium mix of new and vintage eyewear, which is sourced globally. Some of their cult labels include Cartier, Oscar Magnusson, Thom Brownie, and many more.
Wintergarden's hidden gem is Pigeonhole, a treasure trove of jewellery, leathergoods, knick-knacks, gifts and cards. We guarantee you'll find something special for that hard-to-buy-for friend or maybe just #treatyourslef for trying.
At Details Designer Jewellery you'll find truly original pieces inspired by Balinese culture. Wander to the gallery level of Brisbane Arcade and explore the beautiful collections, many of which are created in store, with a select few designs are created in an intimate Balinese workshop.
Plan for Winter Carnival and Melbourne Cup a little earlier this year. Felicity Boevink Millinery provides exquisite bespoke millinery, using the finest materials. These bespoke masterpieces are hand-made using traditional and modern millinery techniques. Wander through their Millinery Pop Up Shop in Wintergarden (located on ground floor) and explore the range of unique pieces.

Marvel at the craftsmanship of the jewelry on offer, which is manufactured right in their Brisbane Arcade store.
