Can we get some R-E-S-P-E-C-T? The Waterloo is serving Brunch with Soul

Get amongst some Spritzes and a soulful brunch menu

Time Out in association with the Waterloo

Calling all soul sisters: why have a normal brunch when you can have brunch with soul? Brunch is becoming de rigueur in Brisbane, but brunch with Spritzes (named after famous soul singers, no less) and live music makes this a brunch with a beat. 

Every Saturday at 11am, the Waterloo (corner of Ann Street and Commercial Road in Newstead) offers Brunch with Soul for just $55. There are pastries and fresh fruit on arrival, and you can choose one brunch item and enjoy Spritz cocktails for two hours. The brunch items include French toast with Nutella, banana, cookie soil, ice cream and icing sugar dusting; pancakes with mixed berries, coulis, maple bacon, ice cream and whipped cream; shakshuka with meatballs, fried eggs, borlotti beans and crushed tomato sauce; a brekkie bagel with bacon, fried egg, smashed avo, fries and aioli; and smashed avo with rye bread, Persian feta, Morocan-roasted cauliflower and chickpeas. 

And let's talk about those Spritzes for a minute. All are named after famous soul singers. There's the James Brown Aperol Spritz (Aperol, prosecco and soda), the Aretha Franklin Peach Bellini (prosecco, peach puree, lemon juice, honey), the Stevie Wonder Sloe Spritz (sloe gin, prosecco, blueberries, mint and soda), and the Ray Charles Watermelon Spritz (gin, watermelon, lime, prosecco and soda). You can also ask for house wine, beer and non-alcoholic drinks. 

But food and drink alone do not a soul brunch make. You need one more crucial ingredient: soul music. Chang Po Ching, who exploded onto the Australian music scene on The Voice Australia in 2018, performs with his band live during every brunch. Sweet tunes, sparkling cocktails and brunch favourites – now that's brunch with soul. Book online to reserve your spot and feed your soul.
