A brand new venue from the same owners as our neighborhood favourites Canvas Bar and Electric Avenue has recently opened down the road and we are veeeery excited!!
Mr Badgers is a quirky, family-friendly spot. Dishing up everything from morning coffees and bagels and lunchtime meatball subs to evening charcuterie and cocktails—YUM!
What is the history behind the name you ask? Mr Badger (or Joseph Stillman Badger) was actually an electrical engineer from New York, who moved here in 1897 to electrify the city’s tram network—a network that started from the cul-de-sac at the beginning of Logan Road. It’s this figure in Brisbane’s history that inspired the new Mr Badgers,which has taken up residence in that very cul-de-sac.
As you walk in, you can’t help but notice the massive red and white tram taking up half the indoor space. Hand built by Adam Pykett, a carpenter who also happens to be a whizz in the kitchen, the tram features leather booths inside under a portrait of Mr Badger himself.
If you’re stopping by in the morning, you can get your hands on a deli bagel, stuffed with smashed avo and Persian fetta, smoked salmon and dill cream cheese or a saucy stack of fried egg, bacon, swiss cheese, tomato chutney, aioli and rocket. There’s also bakery goods to grab-and-go if you’re in a rush, with Black Sheep Roasters beans being poured for your caffeine fix.
After lunch? You’ll want to look towards the sandwich menu, which lists out some gourmet sangas so much better than anything you normally slap on bread at home. Think a classic Reuben with pastrami, swiss cheese, pickles, sauerkraut and Russian dressing on rye; a South Philly cheesesteak with wagyu beef, American cheddar, provolone, caramelized onion and aioli on an Italian roll; and a roll stuffed with housemade meatballs, Napoli sauce, provolone and parmesan cheese.
Thirsty? There is a short list of cocktails, tap beer, tinnies and wine, and there’s a kid-friendly menu complete with a colouring page too.
