One of Brisbane’s best breakfasts can be found at an unassuming café on Samford Road in Gaythorne.

Grub Street operates in a small space but packs a flavourful punch. The menu was conceived with the idea of giving suburban breakfasters options other than ‘cookie cutter franchise coffees and golden arches’, and in this respect it succeeds mightily. Innovative flavour combinations will delight the most committed of food snobs. Bacon and eggs barely make an appearance, and the best part is, you won’t miss them at all.

Crispy pumpkin and haloumi fritters with spinach, dukkah, tzatziki and grilled chorizo makes for a tasty yet light brunch, while the carrot pancakes with grilled haloumi, spinach and beetroot relish are a delicious vegetarian option. For those who can’t envision brunch without eggs, the green eggs and ham (pesto scrambled eggs with ham off the bone and toast) or the bacon and egg burger will satisfy. The menu changes with seasonal availabilities, but you’re guaranteed a great meal no matter when you pay Grub Street a visit.

Seating is available in the outside courtyard of the café, but to beat the heat and traffic noise, take a seat in the air conditioning inside. From there, you can watch the kitchen pumping out the amazing brunch and lunch dishes, or browse the selection of home made relishes and chutneys for sale.
