Flute Fine Food

No longer are suburban foodies required to drive to West End or New Farm.

As a Coorparoo local, it is refreshing to have a choice when it comes to going out for breakfast. And no, drive-thru McPancakes are not considered a viable option just because we live in the 'burbs. Yes, call me a food snob. Whatever.

Most suburban food fans would have to get in their car, hit the highway and end up in the likes of West End or New Farm only to find a queue as long as the one for Beyonce tickets. However, for us 'paroosians (see what I did there?) the journey is but a mere stroll away. Located in the Cavendish Central complex of Cavendish road, Flute prides itself on just that: Fine Food (without the often ridiculous price tag).

On any given day, Flute's popularity is evident. However, unlike most cafes inundated with hungry patrons, the friendly and highly trained staff somehow always seem to accommodate any special seating requests. Flute's design makes the most out of the seemingly small space. The takeaway counter is perfect for those who need to grab their caffeine fix and be on their way, although we all know you won't make it very far with the awesome Vanilla House home wares gift shop next door. Who said suburbia was boring?

For those sick of the usual cafe fare (hello eggs Benny for the fourth time in a row) Flute's little Greek breakfast is a must, complete with pita, haloumi, spiced lamb and sour cream. Wash it down with a T2 spiced chai tea and you're good to go. The signature breakfast (complete with rosti and white wine sauce) can easily satisfy any of your caveman companions and will make you rethink your 'no wine for breakfast rule'.

Overall, it's best to arrive early at such a local hotspot, but considering the convenience of not having to drive too far and the fact that the staff will always go the extra mile for you, Flute is always worth the wait. Much like Queen Bey herself!
