If heading to the tuckshop was your favourite part of the school day, then Woolloongabba's newest cafe might inspire a few twinges of nostalgia. A kiosk-style spot at South City Square on Logan Road, Tuckshop Time is all about schoolyard-style snacks. That said, we're guessing that you didn't feast on Nutella mousse brownies, peanut butter waffles or stacked roast chicken baguettes when the bell rang back in the day.
They're just some of the eatery's offerings, with vegetable-filled bowls, pizza rounders and cauliflower mac 'n' cheese also on the menu, plus vegan and gluten-friendly wares as well. Drinks-wise, patrons can sip on 'fruit cup' smoothies, fresh juice (not in popper form, though), beetroot and turmeric lattes, and coffees.
The latest venture from Greg Mclean and Caity Jones, the forces behind Decisions Cafe on the Sunshine Coast eatery, Tuckshop Time also keeps school-like hours — it's open from 6am–6pm seven days a week, for both dining in and taking away. And, while you're harking back to recesses gone by, you'll do so on a vibrant patch of greenery, complete with chairs, garden views and cushions along the deck.
There's also undercover seating for when the Brisbane heavens open, and dogs are welcome.
