An ideal spot for late risers, Pablo serves breakfast and brunch right up until 2.30pm. But aside from its stretched out opening hours, Pablo stands out from the pack in another notable regard: its artful and eclectic brunch offerings. Popular options include the non-traditional gin-cured sea trout resting on toasted brioche with fresh and acidic fennel, cucumber and creme fraiche salad, and creamy dill scrambled eggs. There’s also brioche French toast with homemade burnt butter and pecan ice cream, spiced poached pear, cacao and coconut rubble, pure maple syrup and fairy floss. Another good pick is smashed peas with zucchini, lemon ricotta, grilled haloumi, double-smoked Barossa speck bacon, and fresh lemon over caraway served on onion rye toast. Private tables overlook the main New Farm pedestrian thoroughfare of Brunswick Street and there is hand-roasted Genovese coffee to wash down your carefully sourced and presented breakfast. Pablo is a Brisbane brunch experience to beat.
