While up in Brisbane Simon and I headed to The Little Larder for brunch as Simon had been here before and was keen to return.  We were lucky as we waltzed up and grabbed the last seats available.  This cafe gets so busy that they actually take bookings on the weekend and as soon as we were seated newcomers were having to wait 10 – 15 minutes for a table.  They did wait though, so that has to be a sign of just how loved The Little Larder really is.

The service here is fast, friendly and helpful.  I had their Pesto Scrambled Eggs which was pretty damn tasty and really quite filling.  Simon ordered the Baked Beans and a mocha.  I indulged myself in two glasses of different fresh fruit juices; man they were delicious and so very refreshing on what was a super hot day.  I wish more cafes in Auckland would make fresh fruit juices.

So, if you are in Brisbane I would recommend popping in here for a bite.  You might want to book in advance though to avoid waiting in a queue for a table because this place does get that popular.

  1. Oh thanks for this! Am looking for delicious places to head to when I visit my friend in a few weeks. Brisbane's not really known as a foodie haven but I've managed to find some real gems (well, I hope!). Love the Good Guide too! If you're into that sort of thing you might also want to check out http://www.sweetlimeandspicedtea.com/ and http://brisbanealamode.blogspot.com/ :D

  2. Cool - there was another place nearby called Ponycat which looked pretty good and you might want to try, but we missed out on going there. You can use Urbanspoon.com to search out good places, but on the whole Brisbane and the Gold Coast were pretty pathetic when it came to good restaurants and cafes.
