Usually the idea of going out for breakfast at 8am on a weekend is beyond me but when it came to visiting Pineapple Express Cafe I’m glad I got in early. When I arrived all the seats inside were already occupied and by 9.30am this placed was packed with diners and people grabbing their morning take-away coffees. Pineapple Express Cafe opened earlier this month and is a welcome addition to the Portside precinct. The cafe interiors are bright and cheery (the fit out was done by Tú Projects, who have worked on a bunch of restaurants around Brisbane) however seating is quite limited when busy. I would have liked to have gotten some shots of the interior but it was pretty packed and I didn’t want to be a creep. You’ll just have to take my word for it or visit it for yourself. I opted for the old favourite of avocado on toast (with feta and dukkah) but being a superfood cafe, there are smoothies and acai bowls up to your eyeballs. Also: Cocowhip. If it wasn’t a chilly morning I totally would have had all of the frozen things. While the avocado on toast wasn’t the best I’ve had in Brisbane, at $10 for two slices it’s by far one of the most affordable. They also offer some healthy lunch options and if I lived or worked nearby, I could easily see myself becoming a regular customer.
