2. Kith ‘n’ Chow

96 Gaynesford St, Mount Gravatt
Open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Kith ‘n’ Chow serves homemade peanut butter dog biscuits every day. The humans, on the other hand, can choose from an extensive menu that includes generous servings of breakfast choices — such fruits, yoghurts, eggs, bread and cold cuts — on a platter.  

“In short, amazing food and great service! Although busy at around 10 am on a Sunday, we were able to find good seats if we waited a little.  Ordered the platter for 2 which would satisfy 2 people quite well. Coffee is served from the store next door but was able to be brought into Kith ‘n’ Chow. Overall very happy with the place. PS. Dog-friendly, seen some very good dogs.”
