Our love of Nutella started way back when our mums used to send us off to school with tuck shop money and we’d spend it on single-serve Nutella packs with the little plastic paddle. Thankfully, the love affair didn’t have to end there. Brisbane’s best and brightest chefs have found many ways of indulging the inner child in all of us and incorporating Nutella into our grown-up meals. To help you find them, we’ve put in the hard yards and dug up Brisbane’s best Nutella everything!
The Doughnut Bar
Delve into The Doughnut Bar’s ridiculously good Nutella Cheesecake Doughnut. It comprises a freshly made doughnut, heavenly cheesecake and a BIG Nutella injection. The best part is you get to squeeze the Nutella into the doughnut yourself, or directly into your mouth if you prefer.
Southside Tea Room
If you like to drink your Nutella, like most sane people, head directly to funky little Brisbane café, Southside Tea Room in Morningside. They’ve developed an insanely good Nutella milkshake that can also be combined with Oreos to make a milkshake straight out of your dreams. Moments like these are why being an adult is awesome.
Believe it or not you can actually get your hands on delicious dessert gyoza at the delightful Harajuku Gyoza. With a new spot just opened in South Bank, it’s the perfect place to scratch your Nutella itch. Try the wickedly weird Nutella and banana gyoza served with ice cream.

Chester Street Bakery
Everyone’s favourite Newstead bakery, Chester Street, serve up a number of Nutella treats (natch).
