There's nothing like a big serving of smug to get your day started, and, boy, will you feel righteous after you have one of these ridiculously healthy (and tasty!) meals for breakfast. No matter your particular breed of health nut, we've got dishes for you. Whether you are practising paleo, gluten adverse, very vegan, or just want to avoid the grease this weekend, here are our picks for the best healthy breakfasts in Brisbane.
Primal are almost too conveniently placed next to our offices (their espresso frappe with vanilla, coconut milk, and dates just calls to us!), but luckily everything on the menu is totally paleo and gluten free, so there's no need for any post-meal guilts. Our picks of their kickin' Brisbane breakfast menu have to include the coconut banana pancakes, with warm cacao sauce, and hazelnut crumb. Savoury fans will want to get their Neanderthal hands on the sticky pork with bubble'n'squeak, and spinach and eggs.
Woolloongabba's Orawgi serves up super tasty, vegetarian, vegan, and raw chow to Brisbane's health conscious hordes, and we love them for it. While we are mad about their raw cheesecake of an afternoon (these people even make healthy banoffee pie, yeah, we know. Drool.), their breakfast options are also off the hook. The menu is always changing, but notable mentions include their corn fritters and raw mojitos.
This is surely one of Brisbane's healthiest breakfast options, and a firm Urban List favourite.
Bulimba's new sugar-free café boasts a tasty range of menu options, including yummy bowls of acai, which can have tasty, superfood additions like goji berries and LSA.
For breakfast on the go, there are protein shakes, juices and frappes for that much needed summer day refreshment. And raw desserts are just the thing for a post breakfast treat (you have been very good after all). How's this? They do raw Snickers. Yep. Get down there.
Wray organic always has a cabinet stocked with yummy breakfast options, healthy snacks, and lunch as well. All of their delish' food is made with organic ingredients, with a changing menu that features frittatas, wraps, juices, smoothies, toasties, salads, cakes, muffins and treats for the sweets fans.
The Caveman's big breakfast from Paddington's newest Paleo offering, Paleo Café, features all the protein you could ever want for first meal of the day, right there on one plate. You'll find eggs, crispy bacon, pork sausage, and sirloin steak plated up with cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and paleo toast. Or, if that doesn't appeal, why not try the banana pancakes with whipped mango cream and berry compote? They're vegan, and very good.
Nundah's Jam 4012 might be home to one very good, very not-healthy Canadian stack (featuring fried eggs, bacon, and maple syrup on a pile o'pancakes) but if you can avert your eyes from this menu options you'll see the 'Harvest' fritters, made with corn, capsicum, and topped with avocado and tomato salsa. Tuck into these tasty circles of fun and you won't be able to wipe the smug smile of your face.
While we are nuts about Spring Hill Deli's entire menu (including the decadent wagyu sloppy jo, and the waffles with rhubarb and ice cream), their light and oh-so tasty bruschetta must be on our healthy breakfast hit list. The garlic-rubbed sourdough topped with haloumi, cherry tomatoes, and basil is simple breakfast perfection, but everything on the menu makes our list of Brisbane's best breakfasts.
The Nourish element of Lorna Jane's Move Nourish Believe mantra has taken a physical form in the Nourish café alongside Lorna's Active Living Room in the new Gasworks complex. The menu of tasty takeaway fare has been created by Primal Pantry's own Tracy Hirsch, so you know it's good for you.
City slickers looking for a healthy alternative to the ubiquitous morning muffin will delight in the raw and vegan options from Adelaide Street's Raw 'n' Juicy. Raw pancakes, smoothies, a great range of wraps, fresh fruit parfait, and moreish chia seed puddings are just the thing to get your day started right.
