About To Be or Not To Be

Discerning Brisbane foodies head to William Shakespeare-inspired café To Be or Not To Be on Westlake Drive in Westlake for brunch fare with an Asian twist. Named after the iconic line from Hamlet’s soliloquy and sibling to Method to the Madness café, this fun and funky café rocks clean lines, polished concrete, arched windows and plenty of cosy nooks for coffee catch-ups. Start your day with chickpea, onion and spiced potato fritters, coconut coriander chutney, mint yoghurt, poached egg and pickles, or a crispy bao Benny with char siu pork, sautéed spinach and XO Hollandaise. The lunch crowd is satisfied with a New York sandwich of beef pastrami, pickles, Swiss cheese and mustard mayo or a Moroccan chicken salad with quinoa and buckwheat tabouli, za’atar, avocado, labneh and almonds.
