A flying visit to Brisbane

A flying visit to Brisbane

by Jade Ashby

 After a busy day at the factory, I thought I’d go explore Brisbane by foot.  With google maps on my phone to make sure I didn’t wander too far, off I set for a walk along the Brisbane Southbank.  With the numerous bridges crossing the river connecting different city areas, it somewhat resembled a modern European city.  As it was dusk, the city was showing off with a display of beautiful pink and mauve tones.  Trees were illuminated along the stretch of the Southbank, trying not to be outdone by the city lights of the office buildings opposite.  A runners (or walkers) paradise!

 Each meal of the day should be enjoyed therefore one must take the opportunity to try new foods when in a new location.  Breakfast at Paleo (cafe).  A Luz Almond milk latte with the omelette of the day.  Lovely food and smiley staff.  If only I had time to look around the shops in Paddington.  Alas, it is a work trip, not a shopping trip!

 Lunch at Botanica’s, don’t mind if I do!  An absolute must.  Owners Brett and Ali have created a gorgeous space to showcase their scrumptious salads (and sweets!).

A quick visit to Raw Pawpaw for afternoon teatime, or should I say, another Luz Almond Latte.  Other patrons were having a later lunch and I couldn’t help but wish I had more room as the salad plates looked divine!

The sun was shining during my visit to Sourced Grocer and it appears the Luz Almond milks were also proudly illuminated within their fridge!

Last spot for the day at Press Cafe.  A funky permanent pop store with wholesome takeaway options and lovely staff members.

 Can’t wait for my next trip!
