Shouk Cafe

Paddington

The Middle East has a rich and illustrious history of splendid culinary goodness, and the fine folk at Shouk Cafe strive to bring as much of it to Brisbane as they can. The menu is too vast and tasty to really go into now, so we’ll just say this: if you’ve never tried the Persian Love Cake, you don’t know the meaning of either love or cake. So head to Shouk Cafe for a little bit of #instalove now! Find out more

“Great flavours and lovely presentation of all the dishes. It’s at Paddington so street parking. It is a very popular cafe. 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

Bowen Arrow Cafe

Bowen Hills

Broken Arrow is undoubtedly John Travolta’s third finest film (after Face/Off and Battlefield Earth, of course). Bowen Arrow, however, is a lovely little café in Bowen Hills, famed for its delectable range of bagels, pizzas, sarnies and sweets. Everything here is made with real love from top-quality ingredients, and looks so good you’ll have to take at least thirty-odd pictures before you can dig in. Find out more

Brisbane

Summer brings out all the best vegetables, and Vege Rama is here to make the absolute most of them. With a huge selection of fusion cuisine, including Thai, Indian, Malaysian and even Italian curries doing the rounds, you certainly can’t fault this place for its diversity. Or for anything else, really, unless you’re some kind of hardcore carnivore. Find out more

“Pretty amazing food! I’m not vegetarian/vegan but eat here a lot. Love the salads, get one at least once a week and they never disappoint.”  MountKer
