Coffee and leafy lunches on the terrace by day; burgers, beers and live music by night – Tarragindi locals have got it good at this double-duty café and bar

This light-and-airy café-slash-bar is dispensing some of the tastiest takeaway in Brisbane. Leafy salads, fresh wraps, and daily baked pastries line the pristine shelves. Two Seasons single blend coffee fills the cups, and daily specials leave you spoilt for choice. Tables dotted with flower-filled milk bottles provide respite for those with time to linger longer – we favour the sun-dappled back terrace looking toward the treetops. Malcolm Watts and Wallabies player Scott Higginbotham (HabitatMoose and Gibson) are gearing up for summer: a fully licenced Leaf will stay open Friday nights hosting live music and relaxed fare. Check out the beers, burgers and blues deal: for 15 bucks, sizeable burgers (pumpkin and haloumi, Asian-style chicken, battered Barramundi or classic beef) are buddied with a frosty beer, and come with a tasty side of live tunes from blues and roots artist Jimmy Watts.
