Located in trendy West End, Jugar is a kid friendly restaurant with a difference. It has the facilities that you would find in a play centre. But has been decked out in modern decor and offers up a beautiful fresh and healthy menu. The owners understand that just because we are parents, doesn't mean we don't want to be surrounded by beautiful decor in a bright and beautiful setting and be offered an adult menu.
The menu features a full children's menu with high end style cafe items for breakfast and lunch. I am not talking the typical bacon and eggs either. Some menu items include coconut black rice porridge, smashed avocado on rye or soda battered snapper.
The adults also have a huge breakfast and lunch menu with everything you would expect from a high end cafe or bistro, with items such as turmeric grilled chicken salad, black onyx cheese burger or wagyu New York strip loin. So as you can tell, it is a bit atypical of what you would normally find!
They also offer incredible desserts, coffee, smoothies and best of all, cocktails, wines and beers. They also do platters for events if you are thinking of holding your next special event there.
The play area is a fully fenced and clean play area that is surrounded by glass, so you can sit down to your meal while having a full view of the imagination play going on. Features of the play area include:
The Brisbane Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Brisbane mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
Jugar prides itself on offering a space for everyone in the community. They have free wifi, so you can set yourself up with a laptop if you need to do some work and sip on truly superior coffee. They also have the facilities to host local community group meets, classes and events, including a non-gender specific party rooms for the little ones.
So whether you are looking for somewhere to go midweek with your mother's group, or to meet friends with kids on the weekend for a lovely lunch, then Jugar is well worth the visit.
