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

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!
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!

Read on to find out about the latest foodie events and specials happening over the next few wintery weeks!
You're pretty damn cool Brisbane
During the cooler months, some of us choose to hibernate while others choose to rug up, get out and milk this glorious city for all it's worth. If you're a pigeon like us, you love to spread your wings and fly high! Rain, hail or shine, exploring every nook and cranny on the grid is totally our thing. We're a lucky flock of birds as Brisbane is always producing new and exciting things for us to see and do. Local is lovely and this week there are plenty of lovely things us locals can do - how does feasting on copious amounts of dessert and cheese or indulging in a little retail therapy sound?
