Australia’s Best Avo Toast Competition

And the winner is… 🥁🥁🥁

Little Hideout Cafe ✨🥑🏆

The Australia’s Best Avo Toast competition commenced in June and Avocados Australia is pleased to announce the winner just in time to celebrate National Avocado Day that happens on Sunday 31 July.

Little Hideout Café, based in Balmoral in Brisbane (2/185 Riding Road), is the winner of the 2022 Australia’s Best Avo Toast competition with their stunning avocado dish.

The high calibre of all the dishes that were entered made judging particularly difficult. However, in the end, the choice came down to the quality of the avocado and how well avocado was heroed in the dish. All 10 finalists are featured below.


Little Hideout Cafe – Balmoral, QLD

The winning dish features a generous amount of sliced fresh avocado on top of a slice of “Wild Grains” sourdough and served with roast tomato aioli. Piped balls of whipped fetta are dotted around the bread and are topped with thin slices of radish. A flamboyant smear of deliciously creamy beetroot hummus surrounds the sourdough slice and then the whole dish is topped with sprinkles of homemade Dukka. The dish is priced at $16.90.
