Shhhh, Just Eat.
In a sea of overpriced coffee, generic breakfast food and bad service Shucked stands out from the crowd. A hidden little gem in the industrial outskirts of Newstead it is officially my new fave spot. After a friend described it as having “the best Ricotta Hotcakes” I made the trek through the back streets to find a garage door in the middle of suburban street and a little slice of cafe heaven.
I’m not really sure what I was expecting when this friend said Shucked was one of the coolest places she’d been to in Brisbane. A collection of lace vintage doilies, mismatched chairs & quirky ornaments that would make my Nan (and any hipster) proud? But the industrial setting was the perfect backdrop for such a quirky mix of vintage decor and added to the oh so hip vibe.
The food is what really makes Shucked extra special. Not only is the extensive (and stupidly delicious) breakfast menu tantalising, but good coffee, tea & tasty milkshakes seal the deal. The ricotta hotcakes lived up to their reputation and were melt in your mouth delicious. Although the highlight for me was my seriously yummy "Turkish Delight" milkshake.
I can see why this little hidden gem got mentioned earlier this year by The New York Times (!!!) as one of the “top 17 things to do in Brisbane”. I will be back and plan on trying each milkshake flavour - banana & berry, mint chocolate anyone?
