With tantalising takes on classic dishes, this Newstead cafe has locals talking.
EatClub partner No 68 serves Belgian waffles with berry coulis and Persian fairy floss, avocado toast with coconut labne, and hollandaise made with yuzu.Owned by ex-Sydney siders Patrick Beinke and his partner Christine Lim, this dog-friendly cafe sits on the intersection of Commercial Road, Masters and Wyandra Street in Brisbane’s Inner North. Before the cafe opened, a vibrant mural was discovered during renovation. Underneath a black wall lay a bright mural by famous Queensland-born artist Sofles. Now exposed, it lives to tell its tale.Beinke likes to give the locals what they want – but always with a twist. Eggs Benedict comes with either salmon gravlax, maple bacon or port-soaked mushrooms and yuzu-hollandaise drizzled across pert poached eggs. There’s also miso chilli eggs on hemp seed sourdough and French-imported croissants, as well as plenty of sandwiches and daily specials for the lunch rush.
Drinks at No 68 are sorted. They use coffee from Parallel Roasters and wine from Hãhã – a New Zealand company which makes wines from sustainable vineyards in the world famous winemaking regions of Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay. The beers on tap rotate but Beinke always chooses to support local craft breweries.
