Welcome to the suburb series… a quick roundup of some of Brisbane’s greatest suburbs and their independently owned businesses. This series is meant to shine the light on some of our local favourites and perhaps prompt you to share your own with our community. We’d love to hear from you in the comments section below… or email us your local hotspots to be featured on the blog!
First up… my personal locale…. Camp Hill.
Though there is a huge variety of cuisine available in Camp hill, my current favourite is ‘in a pickle‘. A cute little deli and coffee house. They are a fabulous stop in for a sweet treat in the afternoon… and what I love most is the take-home dinners, all created with the finest ingredients and prepared on site. Owners Tim and Esther run the deli and a catering company from the Martha Street location and serve intimate dinners for two through to large events for hundreds of guests. So it’s no wonder they have got this food thing down pat. Their attention to detail and creativity in the kitchen is second to none, and makes us locals stand a little taller when boasting about our suburb!

Scattered Arts is run by a group of Brisbane-based artists and is so much more than just a local gallery. They provide networking opportunities, retail exposure, gallery space and support for the Brisbane art-scene and have successfully done so since 1967. You can find original watercolours, one-off handbags, handmade cushions, jewellery and things for the home. Shopping at Scattered Arts means that not only will you have an absolutely gorgeous original piece… but you will be supporting our local arts culture as well.
