Aside from recently being crowned Lonely Planet's hippest city in Australia (cue childish nose thumb to Sydney and Melbourne) Brisbane is also home to some damn fine breakfasts.
And, because it's a new year (#hello2014), what a great opportunity to sample some of Brisbane's most delish morning meals.
We've chomped our way through many an avo' on toast and breakfast burrito to bring you this list of fast-breaking yummy-ness. Here are the Brisbane breakfasts that you just must try in 2014.

Coming over all retrospective in 2014 to celebrate their first year of business, the team at Scout Café is currently serving up an 'All-Stars of 2013' breakfast menu with yummies like the brekky bagel (topped with a fried egg, cheddar relish and tomato). Their freshly squeezed juices and iced lattes are also the perfect antidote to this unbearable heat. I'm digressing slightly here, but the lunch menu is also worth a sample! No tour of Brisbane's breakfast joints is complete without a stop a Scout.
Jak + Hill
Spring Hill newbie Jak + Hill is serving up all manner of delicious fare, but their Avocado and Feta Smash makes our growing list of places to get your green-mush-on-toast fix.
Coco Bliss Superfood Bar
Fresh, healthy and delicious, acai bowls are a super trendy super food that we predict will get even bigger in 2014. Bulimba darling, Coco Bliss packs theirs full of muesli, juice, fruit and goji berries. Health-a-licious, and also rated one of Brisbane's healthiest breakfasts by us!
Okay, health-nuts will want to avoid this little number, but for the rest of you… the Toronto Stack is kinda hard to pass up for its glorious over-the-top-ness. Sweet potato and cinnamon apple is gently enfolded in fluffy pancake batter before being topped triumphantly with smoky bacon and a fried egg. Your taste buds will thank you.
The perennially popular Gunshop Café make the list with their delicious, un-missable potato and feta hash cakes with roasted vined tomato, baby spinach and herbed sour cream. An iconic Brisbane breakfast spot.
Five Sisters Art House Cafe
Drawing on their Greek heritage, the team behind Five Sisters Art House Café in West End, serve up a great range of comforting—and yummy—classics (plus a great custom-made organic coffee blend) from their snug little shop in Fish Lane. We recommend the Greek Omelette for the very welcome inclusion of haloumi. Cheese rules!
Zucchini & Haloumi Fritters. Is there much more to say than that? Well, that and the fact that they roast all their coffee beans onsite, right on Latrobe Terrace. Breakfast win.
Bang Bang Lulu
There's a great selection of fruit and muesli cups on offer from this vegan-a-rific café in the heart of The Valley. Their smoothie list is very nice too; we're eyeing off the Bananarama with banana, vanilla, dates and tahini.
Spring Hill Deli & Café
The next breakfast 'it' dish, Shakshuka (an Israeli baked egg and tomato dish) currently stars on Spring Hill Deli's great brekky menu. As one of our favourite, secret Brisbane breakfast finds, Spring Hill Deli is on the up and up as more and more of you cotton on to this fantastic spot, so get in before it gets lines-out-the-door busy!
Serving up scrumptious, and sustainably sourced, breakfast and lunch, new West End addition Plenty is the perfect place for foodies who care about where their food comes from. Try the baked eggs with potato, ham, asparagus and truffle brie (mmm, brie…). Both the café and grocer are worth the West End trip.
Crema and Cream
House made bread, delish breakfast offerings (made by a totally 'profesh' chef too), gluten free options and a fun team dedicated to all things caffeinated, Crema and Cream is keeping it very real over in Stafford. Our pick is the corn fritters with avocado, two poached eggs and tomato relish.
