Cottage Garden Cafe

in The Best of Brisbane


Brisbane’s ladies who lunch have been buzzing about the new cafe at the Cottage Garden Nursery, and with good reason. The cafe is the latest venture of veteran local chef Gillian Hirst, best known for the signature sand crab lasagne she devised during her time at Il Centro. The new cafe menu is delightfully varied and oh-so tempting. Although the portions were quite small the flavours, presentation and ambience in the private garden setting were special enough to forgive the meagre breakfasts. The nursery is lovely to explore, the collection of French country antiques inside is completely charming, and if you’re looking to pick up a peerless orchid, you’ll want to take note of the ones on offer here.
