Word On The Street #136

Whether that entails coffee and cake, brunch, decorating or a bit of dancing in your underwear, whatever you need to make this week great. To help you conquer we've rounded up some of our favourites - this is where the magic happens. All, or at least one, of these are bound to put a smile on your face cause you're too rad to be sad.
When one door closes another one open and we can already smell the delicious pastries behind the new door on King Street. King Street just keeps on giving it, we’re going to have to take up residence there soon we’re there that often. An evolution of one of our favourites, Montrachet Boulangerie, we can’t wait for the bakery to treat us to all their baked goods. We love a handcrafted croissant for breakfast, and even an eclair occasionally (but don’t tell anyone). With breakfast and lunch offerings we’re planning on taking a book, telling work we’ll be late and indulging in some of our beloved cuisines.

A little party never killed nobody
The roaring twenties – the age of clandestine cocktail bars and alehouses. It would be rude if we didn’t honour the decade as we fast approach another twenties era. Nestled in our oldest heritage listed building the speakeasy draws on its legacy while offering a modern take on classic cocktails and culinary opulence. We’ll meet you at the pool table, make sure you don't come over empty handed.
But first, brunch. We practically live by this phrase which means we’re always searching for new and exciting ventures to satisfy out cravings. Hyde Away Café, in Yeronga, takes brunch to whole new levels adding flare to our everyday favourites. Their flavour and texture combinations create something truly magnificent. Combine this with an atmosphere where deadlines and to-do lists don’t exist we’ve found a place we’re never going to want to leave. You can also take your furry friend too.
We'd like to think of Mr Mista as an extension of us, loves an elegant dining experience but, can still party ‘til 3am. Like when travelling south East Asia the asian influenced eatery will treat you like royalty, experiencing amazing flavours in an astonishing environments. Did someone say drinks? The L.A inspired cocktail bar will hit you with nostalgia that reminds you of that holiday, where you had a butler, a poolside cabana & an endless supply of fresh coconuts full of limes… & rum. With culinary excellence by day and a Hollywood party scene by night there’s no doubt the bar and eatery will follow in the footsteps of its siblings including Cloudland, Eleven Rooftop Bar, Jellyfish, to name a few.
