Here at The Urban List, we love hunting down all of the best breakfasts in Brisbane so you can get down to the very important business of eating them. 

But the list of best breakfasts in Brisbane just keeps growing — there's almost too much deliciousness to keep up with!

Because we know your time is precious we've round up the best new breakfasts in Brisbane to try this month. Tuck in!

Ruby Café | Paddington

Can you really argue with an all day brekky? Not when it's as good as the kind the Ruby Café throw in to the ring. The bubble and squeak with spinach, poached eggs and hollandaise has the makings of a Brisbane breakfast classic, and it's definitely on our breakfast hit list.   

Gertrude & Mabel | Dutton Park

Everything on this Greek-inspired menu is delicious, but you should be trying Gertrude & Mabel's take on baked eggs, the fasolatha — a dish that deliciously combines three of our favourite foods (egg, chorizo, and beans) in one neat little pan. 

Willow & Spoon | Newmarket

This cute northside fave do a boss breakfast, which is more than fine by us (they've also just moved their digs, and are now in Newmarket!). The menu at Willow & Spoon is a goodie, with plenty to choose from, but we opted for the West Australian pan fried sardine fillets, poached eggs, lemon, and mint ricotta on sourdough. We're calling it now, sardines are the new smoked salmon. 

Grub Street | Gaythorne

Tucked up in the pleasant, leafy suburb of Gaythorne, Grub Street is another Brisbane café quietly doing an awesome job rolling out the breakfast goods. Their all day brunch menu — which changes every couple of months — is a seriously creative affair with international flavour. You have to get acquainted with the Indian vegetable fritters with red pepper yoghurt, kasundi, spinach, roasted tomatoes and haloumi, and, well, YUM.

Atticus Finch | Paddington

There are no mockingbirds in sight at this Paddington newbie, but yummo breakfasts Atticus Finch have in spades. The black sticky rice with banana tapioca pudding is a comforting winter porridge to ward off even the coldest August wind.  

Egg Bistro | East Brisbane

With its quaint décor, excellent joe, and even better breakfasts, Egg Bistro is one underrated gem on Brisbane's east side. Our pick of their very well put together menu is the zucchini and cheddar bread and butter pudding (OMG) with poached eggs, leg ham, and tomato relish. This little bad boy has been the most popular dish since it was put on the menu, so in this case we recommend you just go with the crowd.

Plenty | West End

We've been banging on about Plenty for a while now, so if you haven't had breakfast at this Brisbane newbie, you really aren't listening. Seasonal and local produce make this menu a changeable one so the eggs baked with smoked Merguez, chickpeas, spiced tomatoes, haloumi, and tarator won't last forever, so take heed.  

Corner Store Café | Toowong

Brisbane westerners turn out to their beloved Corner Store in droves and it's easy to see why. The winter menu is a delicious combination of classic favourites and creative newbies. We were particularly taken with the brioche French toast — a savoury mélange of poached eggs, creamed spinach, hollandaise, and bacon or smoked salmon.  

Spring Hill Deli Cafe | Spring Hill

This inner-city joint do breakfast and lunch equally well but the morning hours are where they shine. The Spring Hill Deli sloppy joe — two fried eggs atop a huge, and moreish, pile of savoury mince — is the kind of breakfast you could fall in love with. Cures a case of the too-many-margaritas pretty fast, too! 

Ben's Burgers | Fortitude Valley

Yep, that's right. Burgers for breakfast. New kid on the block and already a strong favourite, burger aficionado Ben (of Apartment fame), has broken the mould with his brekky offering at Ben's Burgers. There are three burgers to choose from but the clear winner for us is the Elvis burger, for the sheer audacity of mashing together bacon, peanut butter, banana and maple syrup. Woah, Elvis!
