Best of Where to Eat on a Monday in Brisbane

Who was it that decided Monday nights were made for staying at home?

Despite its reputation, there are plenty of delicious spots across the foodie spectrum to dine out on a Monday in Brisbane – we’ve put together this handy list guaranteed to take care of all your Monday bookings from here on out.



Flipping out over the same old brekky selection during the week? Then it’s time you got your head around Hey Mr in New Farm. Featuring a rotating selection of superb seasonal produce and hard-to-find ingredients, this fresh approach to the breakfast scene is adding much needed variety back into your Monday routine. 


When you find yourself hankering for a pastry (or basically anything yummy), let Kurtosh be your first port of call. The cylindrical-shaped kürtőskalács, also known as chimney cake, is a traditional dish native to Hungary – caramelised, crunchy and flaky on the outside, all while being soft on the inside (and often filled with nutella). 


Our go-to for a nourishing breakfast, brunch or lunch, Picnic Cafe is the brekky queen of West Village. Offering a mouth-watering menu full of classics with a twist, it’s the perfect place to kick off a day in the precinct. We recommend giving the smoked salmon bagel or ever-popular korokke benedict a try. You won’t be sorry. 

Lune Croissanterie | Brisbane CBD & South Brisbane

Make Monday your cheat day and treat yourself to a range of sweet and savoury croissants. Lunehas elevated croissants to new heights, experimenting with unique flavour combinations to craft the mouth-watering menu we all adore. For the sweet tooths, their kouign is a must try for that sugary, buttery, salty, caramelised goodness. If you’re in the mood for something savoury, the ham & swiss gruyere croissant is a hit. Don’t forget to check out their monthly specials for the latest and greatest creations. 


Greca | Howard Smith Wharves, Fortitude Valley

Joey’s | Kangaroo Point

Nestled atop the Kangaroo Point cliff’s, Joey’s beachy alfresco setting and stunning views of the city make it a top spot for long-lunching and brunching.

A dark and moody atmosphere to mimic Mondays emotions, but a whole plethora of mouthwatering meals sure to make you smile. With lots of small plates designed for sharing as well as bigger meals, get the gang together and start your week right with eggplant chilli ramen, pork katsu sando and a rotating daily sashimi selection.
