brisbane brunchN': CHESTER STREET BAKERY

Weekend brunch dates with the girls are a weekly tradition. This morning we ended up at one of my fav brunch locations in Brisbane,

Chester Street Bakery

in Newstead.

This little bakery has a "casual street dining vibe", with outdoor seating enclosed by a white picket fence. If you are lucky enough to score a seat outside, you can spend hours relaxing with your friends in the sun whilst enjoying great coffee and food (in winter - go later in the morning to enjoy the sun).

One of the reasons why I love Chester is for their gluten free bread- it is actually normal size!!!  Nothing disappoints me more than trying a new brunch location to have the gluten free bread come out and itโ€™s bite size. At Chester Street the bread is baked onsite in a wood-fired oven. Itโ€™s absolutely delicious, crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. They also have fresh loaves for sale but you have get in quick, as it sells out pretty fast!

I like my bread extra toasted with poached eggs and avocado*.

I would highly recommend checking it out if you are in the Newstead neighbourhood.

*Avocado is considered high FODMAP so only indulge if you know your tummy is able to handle it.  I am lucky enough to be able to enjoy avocado these days but I need to watch my portion sizes. 1/8 of an avocado is considered FODMAP friendly by the Monash University guide.
