In the 'burbs of Brissy, only 7km south of the the CBD is Seven South. Providing an environment friendly to families and their dogs, it's the perfect breakfast location in Yeronga for a morning out with the whole family.
On the grind was locally roasted Dramanti Artisan Roaster beans. The espresso we were served delivered a well balanced palette of plum and berries with a light acidity and syrupy finish. Other drinks available on the menu are freshly squeezed juices, crushes, milkshakes, and an impressive selection of drinks for the grown-ups. We decided on the Watermelon and Mint crush which was beautifully refreshing for the sunny day outside.
The fit out was a mixture of wood, white, green, and a twist of copper. The cafe was naturally lit and there was even a large communal table in the middle for students and others in need of a work space and caffeine.
Whether you're sweet or savoury, the Seven South menu accommodates for all sorts of taste buds with both sweet and savoury hotcakes and other delicious breakfast creations. We sort to challenge their breakfast classic, Traditional Eggs Benedict with wilted spinach, bacon, and hollandaise on ciabatta. The eggs were gooey, the bacon was crispy and the hollandaise was the creme dela creme - nailed it!
Seeking lunch, we couldn't say no to the Confit Duck Leg with warm radicchio and roast pumpkin salad, walnuts, and vincotto. The duck had a similar crispiness to that of pork crackling and held an overwhelming amount of flavour from the crispy outside to the tender meat. Perfectly complimented by the roast pumpkin, this dish makes for a suitable Autumn lunch coming close to winter.
Seven South run an all day menu filled with picturesque meals almost too pretty too eat. Having only opened earlier this year, they have already established themselves a commendable foodie following and a menu to make even the driest mouth water.
Great location. The taste of the meals didn't quite meet their picturesque factor.
