Squirreled away down a nondescript arcade off Adelaide St in the City is a small take-away café offering some big eats.
Baby Jak is the new younger sibling to Jak & Hill in nearby Spring Hill. What this tiny cafe lacks in dine-in seating, it more than makes up for with tasty treats.
Specalising in flatbreads, we started our day with the Brekky flatbread, filled with streaky bacon, fried egg, spinach and aged cheddar. This was freshly toasted and has made every subsequent bowl of cereal just a little bit disappointing.
The aged cheddar in this fancy sandwich was addictively good, melting through the very moreish flatbread, which was packed with a softly fried egg and a decent amount of bacon.
Other flatbread options include a pulled pork option, with chilli jam, mint and coriander, slaw and Japanese mayo. Or try the herbed chicken with avocado, rocket, tomato, lemon aioli and pesto.
Vegetarians are also catered for with a vegetarian flatbread available, packed with roast pumpkin, feta, mushrooms and rocket.
If bread isn’t your thing, the lunchtime crowd can also choose from a range of freshly made healthy salad options, making the most of seasonal produce.
An array of homemade sweet treats is also available, including fresh pastries, muffins, cakes and decadent Lindt chocolate brownies.
The mornings here see lines of people queueing up for some excellently brewed Allpress espresso coffee.
Tea-lovers can indulge in a cup of Tea Drop tea, including the usual earl grey and English breakfast options, but also with a refreshing lemongrass ginger tea or honeycomb vanilla chai on offer as well.
A wide range of Emma & Tom’s bottled juice is also available.
Baby Jak Café is open from Monday to Friday from 7am to 3pm, and can be found at 144 Adelaide St, Brisbane.
