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....

Top spots for you and your pooch!
Although dogs have always been man’s best friend, in recent years the top spot has come under some serious competition from our newest pal, coffee. But why choose between our two great loves? There are some wonderful local Brissy haunts that will always welcome your favourite canine companion with open arms, not to mention a water bowl and a nice patch of outdoor shade. And since dogs are the best lunch date companions – they don’t talk about their ex-boyfriends for an hour or send their skinny vanilla latte back twice - don’t leave them at home on your next coffee expedition. Bring them along to one of these fabulous doggy-friendly establishments!
