Get Lure On Latrobe At Charming Paddington, Brisbane

Similar to Singapore’s Haji Lane, Paddington is a charming district in Brisbane that’s filled with quaint cottages turned enticing shopfronts and restaurants that spill out onto the pavement. In fact, I adored the place so much that I actually visited it twice when I was in the city!

If you are taking a bus to the area, you can start your walking tour from Paddington Market Building. I wouldn’t recommend you spend too much time in this building, the real fun stuff starts further down the road.

You know you have hit the right place once a mixture of traditional tin and timber houses and renovated Queenslanders comes into the picture.

Visitors who love browsing for quirky keepsakes, antiques, second-hand treasures, retro goodies, homewares and artwork can spend the entire afternoon here.

Go in & take a look. You won’t be burned at the stake.

Other than designer fashion, hidden gems can be found at the numerous vintage and 2nd hand shops boutiques found along the street.

To complete your new look, go get a new haircut just round the corner!

It was already late afternoon by the time I was done with my shopping. I was famished but I refused to settle for a sloppy late lunch.

Located near the Paddington Post Office Bus Stop was a lovely, rustic outdoor cafe named Lure On Latrobe.

The lady of the place was all warm and helpful. I feel very much at home here.

She quickly got me all settled in and strongly recommended her husband’s speciality – Beef Lasagna ($16)

This place is the perfect spot for a lazy weekend brunch before hitting the shops at Paddington.

Or a casual, quiet afternoon coffee place for first dates.

It didn’t take long for my Beef Lasagna to arrive. Traditional beef bolognese with a creamy cheese bechamel.

served with fresh, crispy garden salad and Lure’s signature house dressing.

The lady boss wasn’t bragging when she said customers were full of rave for her husband’s lasagna. I loved the intensive flavour and thick cheesy texture that accompanies every bite. One of the best lasagnas I have ever tasted. If you are keen to make lasagnas at home, go get yourself a good lasagna pan in the market.

After a hearty meal, it’s time to head back to my hotel before the skies get dark. Some of Brisbane bus stops are equipped with real-time transit information that tells you when your next bus is coming!
