Lure on Latrobe @ Paddington, Brisbane

This week has zoomed past and it can only go faster at the rate that work is piling on my desk. I can't say I hate it but man, I need to get this all finished. That aside, today is yet another breakfast place that I like to share with you all.

So far, majority of our "outside" meals have consisted of breakfast and it is only going to continue till we run out of places to visit.

Another excellent spot to have breakfast or brunch is Lure on Latrobe. Once you spot it and manage to find a car park spot, you will settle into their outdoor terrace very nicely. With plenty of shade, provided the weather is not too hot too, sitting outside is the way to go. 

Plenty of choices in the menu with a balance of savoury and sweet. 

Somehow that particular morning, I was suddenly in the mood for vegetarian, well almost. 


The zucchini and haloumi fritters was not a pretty sight but with the spicy tomato jam and yoghurt, not to mention beautifully poached eggs, it was a nice change to my big breakfast. That being said, someone on the table did order the big breakfast and it look so mouth watering with everything you can imagine on the plate.


The Wife ordered the French Toast and from the second the plate touched the table, my eyes couldn't leave it. Brioche, egg, cream, poached apples (I think), what more can one ask for? I suggest sharing this as a dessert but you can always have it on your own as a second breakfast.

Service was good, the waiter and waitress were entertaining although I couldn't believe they had no syrup for their summer coffee so do tell them if you want it come with sugar. We had a good laugh when the waitress had no idea what we wanted. 

I reckon a keeper with prices around the AUD15 range.

Address and contact details:

Lure on Latrobe on Urbanspoon

Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Not sure what we had deserved the 4 star mark but we like outdoor seating arrangement and it helped that the morning was overly hot or you can always order summer coffees to cool yourself down.

Wow. The french toast looks so very good. *DROOL*
(I fear the onset of a mid morning sugar crash if I eat that tho! lol)
