Believe it or not, places other than your school tuckshop can whip up a delicious toastie. In fact, toasties have grown up a lot recently are getting rather gourmet. Here’s our second edition of Brisbane’s best toasties:
#1 The Apo | Fortitude Valley
The toastie at The Apo is not just a toastie, people. It’s an experience. While it may not innocent enough on the plate, one bite and you’ll be hooked. The best thing though, is that it’s on the late night menu too.
#2 Tuppys | Kangaroo Point
Tuppys does a killer toastie. I don’t know what their secret ingredient is, or how they do it, but time after time I will return when the craving hits.
#3 Arthur Green | Red Hill
The toastie at Arthur Green inside the Red Hill Bowls Club is more than a little bit fancy. The slow-cooked, tender pulled pork belly and coleslaw toastie is mouthful after mouthful of deliciousness.
#4 The Milk Factory | South Brisbane
Gooey, cheesy buttery goodness is abundant at The Milk Factory! Add leak and prosciutto and you’ve got yourself a winner.
#5 Pearl Café | Woolloongabba
The humbly titled ‘cheese on toast’ at Pearl comes with asparagus, grilled monte enebro goats cheese, toast and lemon. It’s a pretty fancy iteration of the humble toastie, but we’re loving it.
#6 Sourced Grocer | Teneriffe
Sourced Grocer know toasties: consisting of Bangalow ham, gruyere and pickles, you’re going to be wanting a second one of these. Or a third.
#7 Bread & Meat Co | Fortitude Valley
Bread & Meat Co’s name pretty much gives it all away, so you can bet their toasties are going to be crackers. The beef brisket dip is our pick; stuffed with 36 hour slow-cooked brisket and a side of jus just for dipping. Epic.
#8 Lady Marmalade | Stones Corner
Lady Marmalade have well and truly earned their spot on this list. With both turkey and Wagyu offerings, we’re pretty sure you’ll be ordering both.
#9 Green Beacon Brewing Company | Newstead
Green Beacon Brewing Company have a whole menu of toasties made fresh with Danny’s Bread – you can’t beat the mushroom and mozzarella, but there’s no reason you shouldn’t try the whole menu!
#10 Cawfee | CBD
For a place that prides themselves on being Brisbane’s slice of New York, you’d expect their sandwiches to be point - and that they are. Choose between bagel or Turkish and a daily roster of fresh fillings for the ultimate in toastie goodness.
