Little Black Pug
If you love dogs as much as you do coffee and brekkie, this local Mount Gravatt favourite is for you.
November 27, 2023
Little Black Pug in Mount Gravatt, south of Brisbane CBD, has three main focuses: good food, good coffee and, yes, pugs. Bowie and Mate are the fur babies of owners Louise and Josh, who bring their scientific backgrounds and environmental consciousness to the cafe, which was a winner of Toby's Estate Local Legends competition in 2023.
The menu has a focus on local produce and the diversity of the local community, so breakfast staples like scrambled eggs and smashed avo sit alongside field mushrooms and miso carrot lentil hummus on vegan crumpets, and fermented chilli tofu with pickled daikon on a toasted croissant. As you'd expect, there are options for your four-legged friend, too, with lactose-free puppycinos and grain-free beef meatballs available.
There are three separate dining areas to enjoy your meal in, including a secluded garden. The cafe always announces on social media when Bowie and Mate will make a VIP (Very Important Pooch) appearance. There's also an events space within the same complex, which you can hire and set up for group dining and functions. But really, all you need to remember is those three Little Black Pug priorities: good food, good coffee and good dogs. And not necessarily in that order.
