12 Best Cafes on the South Side

With lockdown well and truly behind us now (keeping fingers crossed), it’s time to pull  out the big ol’ wallet and get supporting our favourite and trusty South Side cafes  again by ordering up a storm in our local venues. So without any further ado, here  are the 12 best cafes on the Southern side of the Brisbane river. 

Andonis Cafe & Bar, Yeerongpilly

Prepare to overindulge at Yeerongpilly’s most decadent eatery, The Andonis Cafe &  Bar. Eat your way through their extensive breakfast menu with the sugary and sweet  Canadian Breakfast served with Belgium house waffles, seasonal fruit, bacon, vanilla  ice cream, maple syrup and more. What. a. combo. Although if you lean towards the  savoury side, order up their famous Breakfast Burger Of The Gods (we’re talking  streaky bacon, sunny side fried eggs, onion rings and fries). There’s no denying that  we’ll be heading into a food coma after this gluttonous pig-out. 

Coffee Supreme, Woolloongabba 

Within the hidden streets of Woolloongabba, you’ll find this spectacular hole in the  wall right next to the leafy Eden Lane (the perfect place to sip away at your freshly  brewed cup of coffee). From the almond croissants made on the daily to the  cinnamon filled doughnuts (only available on the weekends), Coffee Supreme is the  place to hit up if you’re passing by Woolloongabba and need a coffee hit. But, if  coffee isn’t up your alley, we suggest trying their sweet iced chocolates, but make  sure you ask for milk chocolate! You’ll thank us later. 

The Jam Pantry, Greenslopes 

The Jam Pantry is popping off in the suburban streets of Greenslopes, dishing up  flavoursome and loaded plates to its local Southsiders. Think of beef brisket burgers,  zucchini corn fritters, Turkish eggs and the likes of sweet vs savoury pancakes  topped with bacon, maple butter and caramel popcorn. We didn’t think pancakes  could get any better. But before you dine and dash, make sure you pick up a jar of  one of their iconic flavorous house-made jams to spread on your next on-the-go toast  for breakfast.

Lucky Cat Cafe, Annerley 

If you’re obsessed with cats (who isn’t?), then you’re in luck. At Annerley’s Lucky Cat  Cafe, you’ll get to snap a few photos and play with the four-legged furry friends, all  the while making your friends and followers jealous of the gorgeous cats and kittens  that come your way. This is not your regular cafe, folks. Order up a cuppa, a few light  snacks and browse through the wide range of cat products they have on offer for  both you and your furry friend waiting at home. 

Billykart Kitchen, Annerley 

Billykart Kitchen, located just down from the bustling Ipswich Road, is nestled on a  corner of a quiet and leafy street in Annerley. Known for its exquisite flavours and  rather filling dishes, Billykart is known never to disappoint nor let anyone leave the  premises feeling hungry. So wrap your hands around the classic cheeseburger and  sip your way through a mojito as this cafe comes fully licensed! Alternatively, you can  opt for a counter good and indulge in one of their muffins, cakes or pastries. Either  way, you can’t go wrong.

Cups and Wells, Salisbury 

If coffee is your sole reason for hitting up cafes, we introduce you to Cups and Wells.  Specialising in coffee, these barista’s take their passion for a good ol’ cup to the next  level bringing Southern residents excellent, honest and strong cups of coffee. Pair  your drink of choice with one of their fine brunch selections of eggs on sourdough,  smashed avocado or a quality grilled chicken sandwich to fill the spot. 

The Whisk Fine Patisserie, Upper Mount Gravatt 

If your go-to order usually consists of sweets from the cabinet rather than a pan-fried  savoury dish, you should probably know a thing or two about The Whisk Fine  Patisserie by now. But if you haven’t, the small but mighty fine top-tier patisserie  specialises in all things sweet, including croissants, pastries and cakes made from  quality ingredients. So order up your regular coffee and pick out your soon-to-be  favourite sweets created by head chef Justin who has refined his skills around the  globe, including in France, the home of pastries. There’s no doubt that you’ll be in  good hands here. 

Little Black Pug Cafe, Mount Gravatt 

Designing their menu around their two gorgeous little black pugs, owners Louise and  Josh created Little Black Pug Cafe based on their love for their four-legged furry  friends and rightfully so, as Brisbane can’t get enough of it. The popular cafe dishes  up tasty meals for residents to tuck into, such as the Dog’s Breakfast, where locals  can choose to eat green with the herbivore selection or devour the likes of the  carnivore brekky. If these don’t tickle your fancy, then feast your eyes on the various  sweets, such as the waffles or the sticky date pancakes. We’ll take either, please! 

Supernumerary Coffee, Salisbury 

Serving up a storm of coffees brewed with Padre Coffee Beans, Supernumerary  Coffee has been taking over the suburb of Salisbury with its moreish delights. Find  the likes of freshly baked croissants with chocolate chunks mixed in, organic  sourdough and avocado toasts on offer. And if you hate to depart from your beloved  furry friend, feel free to bring them along too, where they can enjoy a puppacino (or  two) and some peanut butter cookies (you’ll be their favourite hooman in no time!) 

Little Dreamer Cafe, Calamvale 

The Little Dreamer Cafe, where the food and its surrounds look as pretty as it  sounds. This one was born to impress the locals, from its blush pink interiors to  decadent breakfast towers and unique latte art presented in pastel coloured mugs.  Dig deep into share platters layered with ultimate breakfast goods such as bacon,  fried eggs, halloumi, avocados, tomato relish, hash browns and sourdough! Quite the  feast. Pair your brekky or lunch order with the cold drinks on the menu (which are  very Insta-worthy), from the green to the berry and mango and banana smoothies.  Pets are also welcome on the premises (what more could you want?).

Kith’ n’ Chow Mount Gravatt 

Serving up savoury dishes to something sweet, Kith’ n’ Chow has a little something  for everyone. For those looking for smaller scale meals, options such as raisin and  myo toast are up for grabs. While eager-eyed eaters can feast on bacon and egg  rolls or mixed platters full of halloumi, hommus, sourdough and more. For that something sweet, locals can also order up dishes such as banana and honeycomb  waffles with a side of maple syrup (we’re drooling already) or a healthy acai bowl.

Moreish Cafe, Greenslopes 

Moreish Cafe is just that, moreish; and we can’t get enough of it. Located within the  precinct of Brisbane’s popular Stone’s Corner, Moreish Kitchen & Espresso Bar  brings cafe dining to a whole new level in a refined and sophisticated environment.  Expect to be served quality dishes including the likes of pulled pork and poached  eggs (a match made in heaven), their take on eggs benedict (because what would a  cafe be without an eggs benny?) and wild mushroom bruschetta. Though, if you’re  brunching late, the extensive lunch menu is also a winner with its steak sandwiches,  pasta’s and salt and pepper calamari dishes ready to be devoured in no time.
