Hawkes and Crosby

Hawkes and Crosby

| On 31, Oct 2015

New to the dining scene, Hawkes and Crosby is the perfect spot for city dwellers looking for an escape to country life, and only thirty minutes from Brisbane city.

One of the most unique features of Hawkes and Crosby is their beautiful wraparound balcony amongst it, surrounded by native flora and the peace of the Australian countryside.

Anstead locals Matt Sharrock and Shane Eden have turned a charming old Queenslander into the much-needed, perfect dining destination for the far western suburbs, serving up a delicious menu of modern Australian cuisine.

Much to the delight of Anstead locals and those from neighbouring suburbs, Hawkes and Crosby came to fruition after owner Sharrock was offered the space that was soon to be redundant- twelve months later Sharrock’s love of food and cooking has come to life.

Sharrock and Eden invited friends and locals to their resoundingly well-received soft opening on the 15th of October, and since then Hawkes and Crosby has become a local favourite. At this stage Hawkes and Crosby serve all-day breakfast and lunch until 3pm, but there are also rumours of a dinner menu in the works.

A good eggs benedict is always a crowd pleaser, and Hawkes and Crosby serve theirs with your choice of pulled pork, in-house cured trout or smoked ham.


If you can’t go past a good avocado on toast on a Saturday morning, Hawkes and Crosby’s is one to try; avocado, feta, and smoked fennel salt on toasted rye goes almost too perfectly with a side of haloumi and hash browns. For something a little sweeter try the cinnamon crepes with spiced pineapple and Maleny Dairy ice-cream, or maybe the waffles with peppered strawberries, balsamic, basil and mascarpone.

Drop by Hawkes and Crosby seven days a week from 7am to 3pm- the trip out will be well worth your while.
