Bottomless brunches are great.
They’re great because they allow you time to sit, eat, drink and converse with your friends, which is what sharing a meal is all about.
Also, eating is not supposed to be rushed and weekends are meant to be enjoyed, so what better way to do so than by celebrating life and friendships by eating and drinking, and then ordering another round for the table at no extra cost?
So, to help you do that, here’s our pick of some of Brisbane’s best brunch offerings.
Mexican is on the menu at this bottomless brunch. And in our opinion, the only thing better than bottomless tacos are bottomless Margaritas. Both of which you get for 2 hours on a Sunday between 10am and 2pm.
Described by the owners as “a little risqué and spicy in all the right ways”, Rita’s is bound to be the starting point for some pretty memorable experiences.
Every Sunday from 10-2pm
Find Rita’s at 36 Vernon Terrace, Teneriffe
2. Maggie May
If you’re keen to eat gourmet brunch eats and drink on an unlimited level, head to Maggie May, Newstead’s 70s-inspired supper club, for their new bottomless brunch offering.
You’ll get to lean into the morning with decadent dishes such as wild mushrooms on toast topped with Gruyere, gin cured salmon drizzled in mouth-watering hollandaise sauce as well as bottomless bubbles and tap beer. You can add cocktails to your brunch intake for an extra $30.
Every Saturday & Sunday
Find Maggie May at 84 Longland St, Newstead
3. Darling & Co
Nothing quite says bottomless like a fountain pouring prosecco. But then Darling & Co don’t just have the one fountain, they’ve got a second pouring spritz so all you need to do is walk on over and top yourself up.
To make sure you’re not gonna stumble over to the fountain and try for a swim, you’ll be served up an shareboard of wraps, bruschetta and sliders to start, a pizza to yourself, and a side salad for good measure as well.
Saturdays & Sundays at 11.30 or 2pm
Find Darling & Co at 157 Given Terrace, Paddington
4. Covent Garden
At Covent Garden, the focus of brunch is less on the food and more on the drink. Specifically, gin!
You could go for the sangria jug, Pimm’s No.1 Cup, or the monthly gin cocktail special that’s on tap. No matter which you choose though, it will come flowing for two hours. Then when your brunch time is up, you can easily slide over to the bar and pump up the crew with Covent Garden’s extensive selection of drinks and party well into the afternoon. What is brunch if not the beginning of another fabulous day?
Don’t worry, there is food in the form of share platters loaded with cured meats, cheeses, pickled vegetables, pesto, hummus, freshly toasted breads, and crackers.
Sundays from 11am-3pm
Find Covent Garden at 142 Boundary Street
5. Ling Lings
Disco ain’t dead at Ling Lings, at least not on the weekend because they’re spinning the ones and twos with disco, house, and party tunes while you have a sit-down boogie with an eight-course Dim Sum banquet paired with two hours of beer, wine and sparkling. Need we say more?
Perhaps we should let you know that this brunch is at a later hour than most, but if you’re waking up late on Sunday morn then it’s kind of the perfect time for a Sunday or Sunday sesh especially when you consider the possibility of kicking on into the evening.
$49pp plus booking fee
Every Saturday & Sunday from 2pm.
Find Ling Lings at 11/351 Brunswick Street
