A third venue from the team behind Graceville’s Goodness Gracious and Picnic Camp in Camp Hill is here to vie for the position of favourite, with Picnic West End blessing us with a whole new Sunday morning hang out. Far from a carbon copy of the popular Camp Hill spot, Picnic 2.0 has its own stand out menu and sleek, open dining space nestled in West End’s fabulous West Village. With high ceilings and an abundance of light streaming through the wall of windows facing Boundary Street, the venue features globe lighting, natural pine furnishings and aqua finishes complimented by an abundance of greenery.
The signature dish on their breakfast menu is definitely the Wagyu Scotch egg, a flavour overload accompanied by a house pickled salad, bearnaise sauce, avocado, hash browns, kimchi-inspired dressing and piccolo. Other must-tries include the pork bulgogi benny featuring mushroom leek potato croquettes, pork bulgogi and hollandaise sauce, and the Stacks On Stacks cream cheese pancakes, topped with fruit salsa, berry compote, pistachio praline, salted caramel sauce, ice cream and lemon balm.
You’ll also find a far-from-boring lunch menu on offer, featuring the likes of a lemongrass teriyaki bacon salad and the Spice Bae chicken burger served with shoestring fries. Looking for a late afternoon snack? From 2pm-4pm you can order up plates of small bites like halloumi chips, popcorn chicken and sweet potato fries, best paired with something a little boozy from their drinks menu like the Biscoff martini or vodka, lemonade, lavender syrup and blueberry loaded Lady Lavender.
