Before I get into my list of Brisbane's best breakfast spots, let me clarify one thing first. In the morning, I do not like waiting to eat. (OK, I don't ever like waiting to eat but in the morning, I like it least.) Since every decent cafe in town will be rammed this weekend, I recommend cooking mum the nicest thing you can and serving it to her in bed (or close to it). Then you can present her with a pack of IOUs promising you'll treat her to a breakfast out at all five of these places over the next few months when the crowds aren't quiet at their peek.
1. The Jam Pantry | Greenslopes *top pick!*
2. Shouk | Paddington
3. Crosstown | Woolloongabba (for lovers of lunch, not breakfast)
4. Plenty | West End
5. Billykart Kitchen | Annerley
