Top 5 Restaurants to Try in Woolloongabba - A sampling of little England

Exhibiting the British influence on the country, Woolloongabba is considered the little England of Brisbane. These are the top five places to visit for a mouth-watering experience of blended cultures.


Sorellina Pizza

Located a mere five-minute walk away from centre of it all where places like Oaks Woolloongabba apartment complex are located, Sorellina Pizza does not appear to be more than a hole-in-the-wall at first glance. However, step into the quirky little establishment; you will be transported to a world of its own what with the ninja turtle mural on the wall and delicious snacks like mozzarella sticks and sample salads being on offer. Their selection of music perfectly blends with the ambience, and you will be tempted to spend quite a bit of time here sipping a beer.



Pear is a small establishment, but can give any Woolloongabba hotel a run for the money for rustic uniqueness. Its menu is simple and small, focusing mainly on breakfast and lunch. They are popular for their "Piggy in the Middle" Wednesdays, and for their sweets, which are a treat for both the eyes and the taste buds. Make sure you try the mulberry and thyme lemon polenta loaf when you visit the Pearl.


1889 Enoteca

Located down Logan Road, 189 Enoteca is the best Italian you can find on this side of the city. It is a moody little place, though, full of character and personality - a cut above other Italian restaurants you may find in the area. Their most popular dish is the braised pork and ragu served over pappardelle. Returning customers also love the gnocchi with ground pork and fennel sausage parmesan cream with truffle tapenade. You can sit outdoors among the green vines or make yourself home at the bar with a glass of Vermentino for a perfectly chill night out.


Baker's Arms Speciality Bakehouse

No list of Woolloongabba's finest dining spots will be complete without including at least one speciality bake house. Baker's Arms is everyone's favourite in that regard. It definitely is not the place to visit if you are looking for a gluten-free diet. However, if all you want is some delicious, freshly-baked goodies, this definitely is the place to be. Wednesday is their doughnut day, which is a strong contender for their won honeycomb cheesecakes for dessert. The Bakery also has a good collection of custard-filled pastries that simply fall apart in your mouth. For the vegan, there are protein balls and vegan cakes - both housed away from the rest of the gluten-laden snacks. You must pair your sweet with their famous Campos espresso for a truly gastronomical experience. You do have a number of salads and healthy food options, too, so that it caters to a wider audience.


Locavore Cafe

Locavore - a blend on local and "vore" - is a cafe that prides itself in sourcing all its ingredients from the locals of Woolloongabba. Thus, their goodies are made of fresh and rich ingredients coming straight from local farms and suppliers. You can taste this, especially in their salads and sandwiches. However, the most popular items at Locavore Cafe is their gingerbread pancake.
