Au Cirque

One of my favourite things things to do is to rise early, fossick through the Brisbane Powerhouse Markets and then head to Au Cirque for breakfast. I recommend getting to Au Cirque before 9am in the morning as you will find parking difficult (though Au Cirque has a brand new car park which I am loving) and could be left waiting in line. Though the staff will fetch you a coffee, it can be mighty cold in the concrete shade of Brunswick Street. But once you enter, Au Cirque is wonderfully warm, I love the way the sunlight filters through the room and how your senses are delighted by the rose wallpaper and the smell of fresh lillies.

The breakfast menu at Au Cirque features a number of wonderful dishes such as Sweet Corncakes with smashed Avocado and Tomato Salsa, Porridge with Winter Spiced Poached Fruit and Toasted Banana Bread with Ricotta and Honey. But if that doesn't tickle your fancy, then turn around and cast your eyes towards the black board containing the specials. The dish pictured above is Hot Smoked Salmon, Poached Eggs on a Parmesan Rosti with Beurre Blanc Sauce.

Here is a photo of the Chowdown. I would have taken photos of everyone else's breakfast but we were too busy chatting and getting our brood on for photos (a recent study claims that brooding men were more attractive). So in summary, great friends with a fabulous breakfast. I recommend trying it sooner than later.
