Blockhouse

Nundah

Blockhouse is Nundah’s hidden gem – part coffee house and part small bar - in a gorgeous white weatherboard cottage-like building that was once a motorcycle workshop.

Serving all day breakfast until 2.30 and with a share dinner menu that kicks in from sundown, Blockhouse is divided into two sections, with a charming polished floor arcade of pocket-sized shops down the middle and a deck to catch the sun rays out front (with a backyard courtyard on its way).

Blockhouse Nundah

No matter what time of day, diners and drinkers can pull up a leather-padded stool, dining chair or seat at the wall banquette and partake in what is amongst Nundah’s best food and coffee or boutique wine, champagne, beer or cocktail from the gleaming black-tiled bar.

Blockhouse Nundah

On the brunch-style eclectic menu choices include Brekky Burrito or Yiros; Sobrasada Scramble with fresh herbs and fried onions, charred corn and roasted pepper waffle with lime yoghurt; potato and feta hash cakes with creamy pea puree, tomato and pea salsa and poached eggs; or popcorn chicken.

Blockhouse Nundah

To accompany the in-house coffee from Single Origin Roasters in NSW is brewed close to perfection and also available as Cold Drip or Cold Brew. Otherwise try the refreshing Iced Hibiscus Tea.

Blockhouse Nundah

Come dinnertime, from 5pm there are unique tapas-like plates with a set menu featuring inclusions such as scallop ceviche, falafel bites. chicken skewers, herb salad, roast lamb shoulder and roasted royal blue potatoes.

Blockhouse Nundah

Not just a great place to eat, Blockhouse also punches above its weight with the bar drinks it offers.

Blockhouse Nundah

Champagne and wine takes pride of place on the bar menu, with a carefully curated list that takes in wine regions from around the world and offers organic and unique tipples not found anywhere else in Brisbane.

Blockhouse Nundah

Blockhouse also does a mean house cocktail – the Killer Bee espresso martini, which is based on their in-house espresso.

Need to know –  Whether dropping in for a coffee, cocktail, brunch or dinner, punters can help themselves to a seat in both sections of Blockhouse.

The menu may have changed since our visit.
