They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it seems that we agree. Drive around some of the city’s top cafes and you’ll see lines banking up out the doors as breakfast lovers wait to indulge in their weekend habit.
While we’re fans of both sweet and savoury brekkie fare, there’s one that always gets our mouths watering. One that has pesto, cream or cream cheese blended through it, to give that succulent, creamy and slightly salty flavour. One that is just as good to eat on its own or with your most favourite accompaniment, be it bacon, ham or salmon. And one that should jiggle like jelly on a plate… You guessed it - we’re talkin’ about Brisbane’s Best Scrambies (scrambled eggs to those not down with the lingo)!
My pick would be the pesto scrambled eggs. I normally can’t eat pesto, not because I don’t love it (and being Italian my nonna would be so ashamed of me right now!) but because it doesn’t love me (will spare you the details). Thanks to the magical pesto at The Little Larder, I can now enjoy the beautiful green garnish to accompany my scrambled eggs.

Comfort at My Table | Milton
You will feel right at home when having your scrambled eggs at Comfort at my Table (except the eggs are never this good at home!). Serving up green eggs and ham (which are seriously green) or just plain Jane style, the meal is girlishly pretty and tastes just as good as it looks!

Flamingo Café | Fortitude Valley
With a fun filled atmosphere, this place is on our list purely ‘cause of their ingenuity! Their scrambled eggs are very honest and you get a generous serving. I recommend Scrambled eggs on toast with a Mrs Palmer & her five daughters juice (banana, pineapple, coconut cream and lsa honey ice).
