Neesh Bar is East Brisbane's local brunch hotspot by day and events by night, with a relaxed, fun vibe, housed in a charming, historic, corner shop on Stanley Street East.
With white panelled walls, bright green chairs, a rustic timber bar, and cheerful piano with plants, this cafe's decor is laid-back, bright and breezy - the perfect place for your next breakfast or lunch date, plus the courtyard is pup friendly.
The menu at Neesh is outstanding with an excellent selection of breakfast and lunch options to choose from. Breakfast fare ranges from the quintessential smashed avo on toast, and traditional eggs Benedict, to Shrooms on Toast (sauteed mushrooms with slow-roasted tomato, crispy lemon kale, black garlic and truffle oil) and Savoury Mince served with perfectly poached eggs, house-made hollandaise, potato rosti and toasted sourdough.
Sweets tooths cross town for the cafe's Creme Brulee French Toast (deep fried custard, caramel glaze, house granola, seasonal fruit and vanilla bean ice-cream) while hearty appetites can tuck into Neesh's Brunch Grazer - fried eggs, avocado, halloumi, hummus, potato rosti, cheese kransky, slow-roasted tomato, herb roasted mushrooms, French toast, granola, yoghurt and fresh fruit.
Lunch, served from 11:30am-2pm, includes avocado on toast, beer battered fish tacos with black bean salsa, classic salmon steak with potato rosti and hollandaise, and Thai beef and noodle salad. For $20, you can get the lunch special of the day and a glass of house wine or beer (Monday to Friday).
Coffee on pour is by Coffee Supreme. Otherwise, there are teas, hot chocolate, specialty lattes, iced lattes, freshly squeezed juices, classic milkshakes and refreshing smoothies: Tropical Punch, Berry Bliss, Banana-rama, and Mango Madness.
Why not get the gang together and indulge with the ultimate Boozy Brunch - bottomless mimosas and Neesh Grazer for $59 per person for 2 hours of bliss (minimum 2 guests).
Neesh is fully licensed with an extensive range of boutique wine, craft beer on tap and bottled, boozy ginger beer, cider and delectable cocktails by the glass or jug including Neesh Pims, Tropical Punch, Secret Garden Red Sangria and Lost Kraken (Kraken spiced rum, ginger beer, lime and mint).
