TrueLocal - The Ponycat: Eggcellent Breakfasts in Brisbane

The Ponycat

New Farm

We tried to make a ponycat once. With sticky tape. It didn’t go very well, and the scratch marks and hoof prints serve as a constant reminder to this very day. Fortunately, this particular Ponycat has been much more successful, and it’s New Farm’s go-to spot for some sumptuous brekkie or lunch.

Get your coffee and breakfast here. Especially if you’re tired of the standard menu and have advanced taste buds. The ponycat, huge sized mugs. Delicious hot choc and great espresso. Funky atmosphere and music, in keeping with something the valley would offer and relatable to St Kilda or Windsor VIC – out2often

TrueLocal - Lock 'n' Load: Eggcellent Breakfasts in Brisbane

Courtyards make everything more enjoyable, and Lock ‘n’ Load has itself a doozie. Nestled nicely in ever-popular West End, it’s a wonderful place for a wholesome breakfast, a refuelling lunch, a well-earned dinner, a round of celebratory drinks, or pretty much anything in between.

Smoked Paprika


All-day breakfast is always a welcome concept, and it’s even better with an exotic twist! Smoked Paprika takes the traditional flavours of Eastern Europe and mixes them into modern Aussie cuisine, and the results are head-burstingly splendid.

TrueLocal - Smoked Paprika: Eggcellent Breakfasts in Brisbane

Nantucket Kitchen & Bar


An elegantly beautiful restaurant, inspired by the graceful stylings of old-timey Massachusetts, Nantucket is certainly one of the swankier places you can go to gobble up a hearty plate of eggs. Settle in and succumb to the irresistible poshness.

TrueLocal - Shouk Cafe: Eggcellent Breakfasts in Brisbane

Shouk Cafe


Shouk Cafe specialises in a gorgeous array of contemporary café-style dishes, heavily inspired by the vibrantly bustling market stalls of the Middle East. As you can probably guess, this makes for some damned interesting eggs!
Eggceptional egg dish: Falafel Scotch Eggs. Delish! Read more

Great flavours and lovely presentation of all the dishes. It’s at Paddington so street parking. It is a very popular cafe. If I didn’t make a booking we would been waiting ages to be seated. It took awhile to get the food but it was worth the wait. Staff were all great. They refilled water glasses any time they walked past. We’ll definitely be back – The healers
