Our second day in Brisbane started out nice and slow with warmed croissants and hot coffee in bed. The day then led us to [.. fun to say .. fun to spell] Woolloongabba, Winn Lane and James St.
Cup Roastery knows what they are doing! Rumored to be one of Brisbane's best kept secrets... although we saw bags of their coffee at almost every coffee shop we were in ... but we quickly learned why. Definitely worth a visit if your in the area.
Banneton Bakery is just a few doors down from Cup Roastery and was the perfect combination with our coffee. I enjoyed a delicious caramel macaroon.
We even came across Woolloogabba Antique Centre. They had a fabulous retro 1950’s cafe, live jazz and a little corner where you can sit on a row of 1940’s theater seats and watch silent movies. The highlight for me of course was the mid-century booth I came across.
We then enjoyed our favourite meal of the trip at Moose and Gibson. We will definitely be coming back here folks! Another nice thing about this area was that it was a Saturday and there was still plenty of parking and everything so close you can just walk from place to place.
James St. //
James St was really enjoyable but a bit crowded. We loved the market which had really fresh produce and some great bakeries and confectionery. There was also great shopping but mostly well known popular stores.
Winn Lane was again a place you could easily blink and miss it. An alley way filled with local shops, an amazing book store and Ben's Burgers ... soooo good! Ben's pretty much has 3 options on the menu.. burgers, fries and beer.. which was okay with us!
