Berry Berry Exciting!
I don't know about you, but here at The Good Guide, we can't go past a good Acai bowl. So to make things a little easier for you this summer, we have done our homework and curated a list of the Top 6 Acai bowls in Brisbane. All you have to do is pick one, or better yet, why not try them all!
Oops, gotta go! A good time is calling...
It's another busy week in Brissy, and we're just bouncing off the walls from excitement (and too much caffeine). We've got heaps of new tasty treats and fun activities you should be checking out. So let the good times roll and immerse yourself in some good food, great drinks, and sick pics for Instagram.
There's nothing little about what Clive does in this cafe! Dive in!
From burgers and sandwiches to waffles and epic shakes, the Little Clive Café located in Annerley, is destined to keep you coming back for more and more (and more).
Eat like Oprah
Hobby Lane’s apple pies are so good even Oprah’s had them. Okay, so maybe she didn’t eat them at the humble Mitchelton café, but the chef did make her these tasty treats on a yacht somewhere in the Mediterranean (I’m not jealous, you’re jealous). Hobby Lane may present a humble front but don’t be fooled for the owner and chef, Peter Shaw, spent 25 years making dinner for the likes of Naomi Campbell and the royal family. See what all the fuss is about....

Good, Wholesome Fun

Good Food, Good Life
We've got dinner sorted, and breakfast and lunch and second breakfast, yes we've got them all covered. With so many great new food spots popping up over Brisbane we're going to need to get some trousers with expandable waists. Good food is definitely better when shared with good friends so get the group chat up and let them know you're all over where you'll be having your next rendezvous.
Fashion, Flavour, Festivals & Fanatics

When in Brisbane..
Whether you love sipping on coffee or booze or, coffee mixed into booze, we've got the perfect hit just for you. Let your taste buds run wild this week as we try new menus, cocktails and heck, we'll even give Cuban cigars a crack. Boring is not a word Brisbane is familiar with. If you don't want to be a (boring) Betty this August, jump on the FUN train with us. First stop.. an espresso martini fest!
Brisbane's Most Banging Coffee Joint
Putting the funk in funky and the class in classic is She Bangs Coffee. This devilish delight is one of Brisbane more unique cafes. Responsible for some of Brisbane’s best crema (a.k.a liquid gold), She Bangs gives even the most experienced coffee connoisseurs something to write home about. Smooth and subtle or bold and bite-y, whatever you fancy this little gem has your coffee fix sorted.
And just like that, another month is gone (holy cow). Brisbane, you've put on quite a show for the first half of the year and we have no doubt you'll continue to #wow us over the next 6 months. Forget dry July, mid-year diets and winter hibernation, there are mouth-watering espresso martinis to drink, along with carb-loaded meals waiting to be eaten and inspiring exhibits to wander through!
New menu, who dis?
Out with the old and in with the new (well, sort of). Staying on top of seasonal foodie trends and produce is something most Brisbane eateries take pride in #lucky. Menus are continually being updated and tweaked to suit, not only our wants and needs, but also, what's current, fresh and locally sourced. We've had the privilege of taste-testing a number of new breakfast, lunch, dinner and drink menus over the past few weeks, and we think you should try them too. Be quick though, time fly's when you're having fun and before you know it, it'll be spring and the menus will be different again!
