Meet Me Cross Town Please


Today I had lunch at a FAB place called the "Cross Town Eatery". Located in Wooloongabba Brisbane. I had no idea it existed until my friend Jody took me there. What I like about the place is that everything is so basic. You can't book. The tables & chairs are basic. The decor is simple BUT the food is AMAZING. Check out the wall art, a massive collection of wine corks framed. Love this. And it is tucked away in a little street. Almost hidden from view. Have you discovered a little eatery like this recently? I would love to know about it.

  2. I was recently in Brisbane shooting house stories and was amazed at how cosmopolitan it had become. I think there is some really good creative buzz up there! Some great looking houses, too...

  7. There is a little place in Marrickville Sydney, a fabulous Vietnamese restaurant. The pictures on the wall don't hang straight, the service is fairly terrible but the food is AMAZING and cheap! So for those reasons we go and love it every time xxx

  9. No, no discovery. Only a distant memory of a speak easy place in New York city that I used to go to regularly while I was living there for six months. It was a hidden bar in the village..., you'd walk through an alley and stepped down into a cellar. It was awesome. I think it's still there.

  10. I was in Brisbane a few years back and sorry to say I missed this place. Can't think of any cool little eateries of the top of my head, but I'll think about it. Love the blog!

  12. Love the cork wall art. I've been saving my wine corks to make a cork memo board. If you're ever in California I'll have to take you to my favorite little eatery, they have the best spinach salad, it's very quaint and charming and the service is excellent.

  15. Wow, I'm impressed!!! So simple and so beautiful...plus the food, as you said, is superb...
    I couldn't avoid noticing the wine celler, as I have worked as a guide for a wine company for 14 years, and I'm stil in love with the subject and obviously the wines as well :)

  19. oooh i was there a few weeks ago and also went to Pearl across the road and Enoteca too !! I'm sooo in love with this little antique quarter of Brisbane...I felt like I was back in London!

  20. I, too, enjoy eating at cafes which are tucked away in cities and towns. One of my favorite italian bistros is Cappricios...fantastic food and really simple decor. I love the small white table coverings on each table and how they serve their wine in small, tumbler styled glassware. So casual and fresh!

    Blessings:)
