NOTE: We'll be seated in the restaurant. Saturdays are pretty busy so we may have some delays on food. The Pullman Hotel team has transformed the ground-floor tenancy into a multi-faceted airy oasis, with a stunning Hamptons-inspired fit-out that pays homage to the past while celebrating the future’s potential. Goldfinch is separated into two parts – a street-front cafe and a sizeable dining room. Goldfinch’s dining room interior evokes a Hamptons-style aesthetic, with crisp white furnishings offset by pops of plush golds and blues, as well as greenery draping from the ceiling. As the name suggests, there’s a distinct aviary theme at play, with huge bi-fold windows opening up to Ann Street and a skylight above. While there is a buffet breakfast on offer, I've requested that we can also order from the a la carte menu as well. https://www.goldfinchbrisbane.com.au/ Remember to update your RSVP with plenty of notice if you can no longer attend. Please remove yourself from the waitlist if you make other plans. Bring along change as there are often no split bills.
NOTE: Single bill ONLY so bring change! Also, we have extended numbers and booked a second table for this event. If it is likely you cannot attend please advise as early as possible! This is a 9:30 am brunch - not 9:00 am as our Sunday breakfasts usually are. A beautiful, modern and contemporary restaurant in Brisbane’s most iconic heritage listed building, Customs House. Patina’s menu, overseen by executive chef John Offenhauser, focuses on a modern paddock-to-plate philosophy, featuring locally grown ingredients sourced from garden, pasture, sea and bay. https://www.patinarestaurant.com.au/ https://www.patinarestaurant.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/BRUNCHES_WEB_2019-1.pdf Remember to update your RSVP with plenty of notice if you can no longer attend.

Close walking distance to Bus Stop for City Glider (60) and 10-12 minute walk from Teneriffe Ferry Terminal or Bowen Hill train station. Mecca Bah is stepping into 2019 with a new location and new lease on life. Mecca Bah has been hawking its blend of Middle Eastern and North African cuisine at Fortitude Valley’s Emporium precinct since 2004, remaining a popular tenant for the entirety of its tenure. In April, Mecca Bah’s owners at Platinum Restaurant Group made the decision to relocate its sole Brisbane concept to Gasworks, seizing the opportunity to secure a corner tenancy of the Newstead hub’s in-progress dining addition, in turn supplementing its established crowd of die-hard regulars with the area’s growing pool of corporate and residential diners. The foodie fun now starts at breakfast, with a Middle Eastern-inspired take on morning fare available in the shape of dukkah eggs and basturma served with diced potato and Moroccan red cabbage, the Za’atar Brekkie with grilled haloumi, over-easy eggs and roasted pine nuts, and a big breakfast loaded with Moroccan beans, felafel, sweet dates, beef sausage and dukkah scrambled eggs. https://www.meccabah.net/ Remember to update your RSVP with plenty of notice if you can no longer attend.

The recent closure of sun-soaked cafe The Brunswick Project left New Farm’s brunch scene reeling, but no sooner had the doors closed than hoarding appeared promising a brand-new concept to fill the coffee and poached egg-shaped void. Caneca Espresso & Bar is the name of this South American-inspired newcomer – a multi-faceted eatery that is delivering breakfast and lunch during the day, and tapas, wines and cocktails in the evening. The inspiration for New Farm’s newest coffee and cocktail spot came from owner Kayhan Tabrizi’s love of travel. While the foundation for Caneca’s South American-influenced fare is comprised of Kayhan’s favourites, the menu as a whole has been assembled by head chef Daniel Cossart. Given the brief to blend Australian classics with a bit of South American flair, Daniel is revelling in the chance to meld punchy flavours with recognisable bistro winners. Caneca’s breakfast menu starts with cups of Dimattina Coffee and a selection of familiar favourites (eggs your way, avocado toast, organic berry and cocoa granola), but dishes such as the sweetcorn and manchego croquettes, fijoada (eight-hour slow-cooked bean cassoulet) and the Portuguese French toast with cachaça-poached strawberries showcase some flavoursome experimentation. https://www.facebook.com/CanecaNewFarm/ Remember to update your RSVP with plenty of notice if you can no longer attend.
