There’s no slowing down Brisbane’s food scene with a slew of new openings deepening culinary offerings all over town.

Here’s a few café and light meal newbies in the inner city precincts that are worth checking out

Happy Little Dumplings has steamed into The Barracks on Petrie Terrace with plenty of har gow, jiaozi, shu mai and steam buns for all. This store, the fourth for the Happy Little Dumplings group, has 35 seats outside a small shop front.

Down in Caxton Street Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall has taken over where The Velvet Cigar finished with rich red walls, plenty of taxidermy, country music and American eats. There are shades of Sydney’s Shady Pines Salon which should come as no surprise as one of the partners in the business, Jason Scott hails from there. The other partner is Jamie Webb who runs award-winning Cabiria and Peasant in The Barracks. Leftys is open for your late night grazing until 3am Wednesday to Sunday.
