The verdict

The Paddington of old resides in Sassafras, a restored workers cottage replete with mimsatched furniture, a pretty little hidden courtyard, and a wide range of all-day breakfast options, lunch, snacks and even a smokey BBQ dinner on offer Friday and Saturday nights. 

The ricotta hotcakes with honeycomb butter have almost solely earned Sassafras its reputation as one of Brisbane's most loved breakfast haunts, but this iconic Paddington brekky joint also does cracking premium coffee by Bear Bones, and has plenty of gluten-free and vegan options available for those with dietary requirements. Also good to know—the venue is available to hire for weddings, engagements, birthdays or high teas, with their hidden courtyard doubling as a private event space.
