Leaning into Coorparoo's love of community is Maude. This family-friendly cafe and restaurant is owned and run by local husband and wife duo, Brandon and Caity Hemmings.
Here, guests are treated to breakfast and lunch every day of the week with a broad range of healthy, indulgent and simple dishes on offer. Classics like the breakfast burger, pancakes and calamari sit beside fresh takes on dishes such as broccoli fritters, bacon-wrapped bangers and mash, and charred octopus.
The drinks menu covers coffee, smoothies and wine, plus some pimped up sparkling waters that are a must-try — think combinations like vanilla bean and passionfruit, rosella and raspberry and lavender and elderflower. And you can add in a shot of your favourite spirit to make it into a cocktail if you're in the mood for something cheeky.
