Plentiful by name, plentiful by nature, Graceville's newest local is showing that the ‘burbs can give the inner city venues a run for their money when it comes to laid-back brunching.
Spare us the hour long line up to sit on ironic milk crate stools while choosing from a menu of avant-garde flavour pairings more suited to a Masterchef mystery box. Plentiful café is all about deliciously honest food, in generous amounts, executed well, in a venue that anyone would feel welcome in, just like any good suburban local should.
The current menu has all the makings of a great Aussie café with a cheeky nod to some fan favourite multi-cultural flavours. Think spiced lamb mince with labneh and hummus on a garlic tortilla, their housemade granola with turmeric poached pears and coconut yogurt or their plentiful salad which comes vegan with falafel, turmeric cauliflower and pomegranate. For the lovers of a classic, the avo smash on sourdough comes laded with dukkha and balsamic, and their fluffy buttermilk pancakes come adorned with lashings on butterscotch and pieces of praline and pistachio. Or for the ravenously hungry, try their benedict inspired spicy grilled pork with potato rosti, eggs and hollandaise, or a big breakfast brimming with all the trimmings.
It wouldn’t be a Brisbane brunch unless it was offered all day to cater for our mornings packed with dog-walking and active wear. So if you’re after a lazy lunch with the lads or ladies, the Plentiful lunch menu from 11am also offers a crispy skin pork belly salad with truffle mayo, a hearty saffron prawn and chorizo risotto, a wintery grilled chicken and double smoked bacon fettuccine, and the Chef’s Chicken Burger with housemade pickle and secret 20 spice mix that’ll even make the Kernel blush.
All this on top of Five Senses coffee and regular weekend specials you'll keep coming back for? Sounds like the makings of Graceville's new regular to us. You can find all the details you'll need on Plentiful here.
