Pearl Cafe, Brisbane

Coffee and cake at Pearl Cafe, 28 Logan Road , Wooloongabba, Brisbane was the perfect start to the 30th birthday celebrations for our beautiful daughter, Shannon. Although spoilt for choice for  coffee spots in Brisbane,  Pearl remains the favourite, probably because of the superior cakes they have out on show on their front counter and Shannon loves cake. I wonder where she gets that from. Michael looked after us very well, and by the time we left the late breakfast/brunch crowd was in full swing.

The cafe with its exposed original brick walls  is located in such an old and interesting area of Brisbane responding beautifully to the revitalisation occurring in many inner city areas today. All of the surrounding  shop locations, including expansive antique shops have a story to tell. If the violin restoration shop two doors up with its nostalgic selection of old musical instruments had been open I would have loved to visit and explore. It is by appointment only.

On the weekends  at Pearl be prepared for a queue at the front door, however it is well worth the wait.
