Little Black Pug
Husband and wife Louise and Josh Daly are a former geneticist and micro-biologist, respectively. Opening Little Black Pug in Mount Gravatt was quite the career turn for them, but also an opportunity to invest in their passion for sustainability.
Little Black Pug offers a 50-cent discount on its Toby’s Estate coffees when customers dine in, or take away with a reusable cup.
The space has lots of white paint and greenery. There’s a long bench down one side of the room and framed pictures of the cafe’s namesakes, the Dalys’ two black pugs Mate and Bowie, adorn the walls.
The all-day menu consists of tried-and-tested combinations such as crispy corn fritters with tomato relish, sour cream and guacamole, and the bestselling soft scrambled eggs with mushrooms and truffle oil on sourdough.
The cake cabinet is filled with house-baked goods such as macarons, frangipane tarts and profiteroles.
