An impromptu breakfast on our morning walk lead us here. Simple surroundings made up by very attentive staff who were very accommodating to our dog with a bowl of water under our table.

Grub St is a great local cafe for those in the Gaythorne area on Brisbane north side. Staff are friendly, coffee is good, food also.

I walk my dog to Grub Street every weekend morning and grab a quick coffee. Staff are very friendly and last month I won a $30 breakfast voucher. I took my daughter and we had a lovely gluten free breakfast. The food was good value and fresh. Would recommend.
