Recently went here for brunch and had the ham hock salad which was absolutely delicious! Cheap eats and great craft beers for the fiancé to enjoy! Highly recommended.

I've visited Bitter Suite several times and I always leave feeling happy and satisfied. The ambiance is both rustic and elegant and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The pecking duck pancakes and the octopus are to die for and the pork croquette special was also delicious. I would recommend Bitter Suite for any occasion :)

We were in the area showing some out of town friends around the city when we thought we would stop here for a coffee. It was a Saturday morning and the place was packed. We were very lucky to get a table inside. The staff were excellent, very friendly and professional. We only had coffee which was excellent but can't... More

Visited here last Friday and I had spatchcock and my wife had vegan baji and quinoa. The service and ambiance were both excellent as indeed was the glass of Merlot. However, the food was very disappointing. The spatchcock was soggy when crispness was required. The cheese that was with this was without flavour and was soggy as well resulting in... More

Have been to Bitter Suite many times, but highly recommend it for breakfast. Great menu (ham hock baked beans are amazing!) great coffee and always friendly staff. Lunch is nice as well as is dinner but the portion sizes shrink throughout the day. The food is great quality but gets a little bit pricier for small dinner portions. Great wine... More

We went here for my partners birthday a few months ago. I had the beetroot risotto and it was amazing. Such a shame that it was a special because I want it everytime I come back!

Today I went to Bitter Suite for breakfast. I had a coffee and the Eggs Benny - it was YUM, very buttery but super delicious. The service was friendly and casual. Great local spot to sit and soak up the sun in the morning.

Dropped in post movies for some lunch. Even thought it's May it is Brisbane so we wanted to be seated out of the sun. When we enquirers about joining tables the waitress told me to get out of the way so she could move them. Didn't mean anything by it but her choice of language could have been better Food... More

Hi, we appreciate your feedback on our food. I am stunned that one of our waitress's asked you to 'get out of the way'! I will look into that. Our All Day Menu dishes are designed as share plates and hence not full sized. All of our food is prepared on site and great care is taken to ensure you... More

Sat outside to take advantage of the breeze coming from the Brisbane river in the nicely treed street. The staff were very welcoming, the food selection a step above casual bar food but not quite as good as some of the other cafes and restaurants in the area, but it is after all a beer focused cafe so the food...
