Flute Food & Wine @ Rosalie, Brisbane

One of our weekly breakfast sessions bought us to the Rosalie suburb which as you read along in the next few weeks, will appear up more than once or twice. Being a quiet neighbourhood with a couple of shops scattered here and there, there is something appealing about this calm suburb. It makes for some peaceful eating. 

Walk inside Flute and it is really anything but peaceful. With customers filling the place to the brim, we got a table outside which makes for brilliant photography; even for a normal digital camera. 


Poached eggs, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, brie and turkish pide makes for a very fulfilling breakfast. Huge portions also mean on average each plate will cost you close to AUD20. 


This must have been one of my many corn cakes that i have had in breakfast. It remains a mystery why i haven't attempted to make my own but i am happy ordering it everything i see one at breakfast. This was however a potato and corn cake which tasted a bit like a croquette and came with bacon, eggs and hollandaise sauce.


This was asian influenced and apart from the usual fare of eggs, bread and asparagus, this came with fish cakes.


The sweet tooth of the group, not me (this time) ordered the banana crepe. If i had it my way, i would have ordered it to share as dessert.


The latte comes in an uber big mug-like. However, it did tastes "milked down" but nothing an extra shot of espresso cannot fix. A signature style of Flute. 

The good food, the huge portions, the coffee and the quiet surroundings make up the perfect formula for a breakfast place. For those in Malaysia, this place reminds me of Mont Kiara on an early Sunday morning (which means very quiet and peaceful, before the crowd appears throughout the day).

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. Not enough blow you away, apart from the fact that i think i am getting heavier to blow away but this is a very good option for breakfast.
