Café
Situated at basement level off Adelaide Street, in the heart of the Brisbane CBD, we serve as a sanctuary away from the hustle of the city where you can sit amongst a vast collection of First Nations art and artefacts, whilst enjoying delicious food, coffee, specialised non-alcoholic beers as well as a selection of boutique reds, whites, sparkles, ciders, and ales.

Our café is nestled in the heart of gallery boasting menus that are heavily influenced by bush tucker and indigenous cuisine. We utilise fresh and native ingredients to deliver modern twists on cultural classics, packed full of unique flavours. We serve breakfast and lunch every weekday from 7am to 3pm. We are open from 8am to 2pm on every 2nd Saturday of every month for dine-in, alongside our First Nations Artisan Markets.

The warm, welcoming glow of the spacious, open plan gallery is accented by various recycled, solid timber dining tables that can easily accommodate large group events or host an intimate meal for two.

Fantastic food and terrific environment for a quite meal or a team meeting. I took my team there for a meeting and it was just terrific. The staff organised a space for us that was separate from the rest of the restaurant and that worked brilliantly. All round a sensational experience!
