One of the great joys of modern Australian food is that it takes in influences from all over the world, from all the communities that make up the country today, and the flavours that waves and waves of migrants have brought with them. At Sassafras Canteen on Latrobe Terrace, just a short walk from Lang Park in the Brisbane suburb of Paddington, you can taste them all. Arrive in the morning – or before 2pm, at least – for a proper Aussie breakfast: eggs, bacon and sausage, avocado on toast and plenty more, and later visitors can try the salt & pepper squid, ale-braised pork belly or Thai-inspired red duck curry. Evening visitors will not be disappointed either, as they will be met not only by a menu, but also a range of craft beers, cider, Australian and international wines and soft drinks. Book a table and take a trip out to Sassafras Canteen – close to Paddington Central Shopping Centre on Latrobe Terrace – for a great Aussie feed in the heart of Brisbane.

Lovely fresh food. Halloumi Salad with Pesto & Tomatoes was delicious and well priced at $13. Lovely lemon curd and blueberry cake to finish. Our booking was at 1pm and we were still there at 3.15pm. The staff were happy for us to sit and chat as they went about their duties. Great courtyard especially at this time of year.
The staff at Sassafras Canteen were prompt with the service and food and very hospitable too.
