Salted Caramel. It's the perfect balance between… naughty and delicious, and is a flavour fusion hitting up everything from crepes and cocktails to puddings and pumpkin seeds. So, we thought it was high time we discovered the best of what Brisbane has to offer of this tasty treat.
1. Salted Caramel Layer Cake
If you want to have your chocolate cake and eat salted caramel too, we have the perfect solution for you!
Jocelyn’s Provisions has established a nationwide reputation for its fine cakes, bread, pastries and provisions, and they have layered up their famous chocolate sour cream cake with delicious salty caramel butter cream. Whose birthday is coming up and when?
Cnr James St and Doggett St, the Valley
2. Salted Caramel Gonut
With New Yorkers running positively crazy over the conception of the Cronut (customers line up for two hours to get their hands on one and are now limited to only two at a time to prevent scalping!), it is no surprise that the decadent flaky, buttery, sugary, chewy treat has landed on our shores.
Skip along to Flour and Chocolate and sample their decadent take on the famous creation, where the salted caramel variety is their top seller - and an absolute staff favourite here at Style.

3. Pancakes with Banana and Salted Caramel
If you just can’t even make it past breakfast without your SC fix, rock up at Rogue Bar and Bistro for pancakes with banana, salted caramel, strawberries, maple syrup and vanilla ice cream.
We’re already halfway out the door just writing this.

4. Salted Caramel Brownies
When you just need a quick fix, a brownie (in each hand) should do the trick. I Heart Brownies make the most rich, moist, indulgent and most soul-meltingly good salted caramel brownies in heart shapes - so it’s like they love you right back.
You can stock up at Jan Powers Farmers Markets (they do sell out so get in early!) or if you can’t wait for market day you can always drop into your nearest Merlo café.
5. Salted Caramel Pina Colada
For those that prefer to drink their SC, Alfred and Constances’ Tiki cocktail menu can provide you with the Salted Caramel Pina Colada. A classic cocktail… that might have just outdone itself. Who was the brains behind this ingenious creation you ask? New York tiki cocktail master Richard Boccato, of course.
