About Sassafras Canteen

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.

Great food and coffee. Beautiful courtyard. Extra friendly service. And a resident lizard who is spectacular and fun to watch. Will come back for a drink and to try a main next time.
