Are These Brisbane’s Best Brownies?

Wendy Cox is famous in Graceville for her amazing, homely food.

She owns Graceville Fine Foods and has plenty of regulars who pop by to sample her incredible sausage rolls, cakes and other delights.

But something that you NEED to try is her brownies.

These aren’t just regular brownies. No way.

Think spiked raspberry brownies, pistachio and turkish delight brownies and even mars bar brownies (a personal favourite of ours).

If you’re ever in Graceville or just fancy trying what we think are Brisbane’s best brownies, definitely stop into Graceville Fine Foods and pick yourself up one...or a few!

Go on... we won’t tell!

But at Halloween, Peter also becomes Head Pumpkin Carver.


In late October every year, one to two tonnes of pumpkins arrive at Superior Fruit, ready to be carved for Halloween.

Peter says they always get requests, whether it be people’s names, brand logos or even obscenities - they’re happy to give anything a crack!

They provide the pumpkin-carving service free of charge as a gesture of goodwill to locals each Halloween.

Peter says it’s the one day of the year where kids are allowed to accept lollies from strangers and it’s great to see people out and excited!
