“Felix Espresso & Winebar is exactly what the city of Brisbane needed.”
With the help of a clever design, tranquil atmosphere and a nourishing fare, it’s a perfect setting within the heart of the city that recharges the stressed workers of the city. Tucked inside the Burnett Lane, some distance from the Super Whatnot, this light filled beautiful space combines the timber furnishings & sunken dining area with the exposed brick & dreamy finishes of draped fabrics. In fact the entire design can be credited to the husband wife duo of Peter Kuhnell & Gretta Bottomley, where Peter looks at the architecture and Gretta looks at the interior design.
This café serves health oriented breakfast & lunch items which are prepared by hand in the space itself whereby the ingredients which go in are sourced organically and locally, as much as possible. The offerings given by the café are tweaked on a day to day basis, though some items like the fresh salads, loaded baguettes, organic tarts and baked goat pie are always available on the menu. Similar to the breakfast, the lunch served by the café is extremely nutritious with offerings such as pork belly & peach salsa baguette with carrot, corn & coconut salad topped with cashew-nut dressing. Overall, the menu gives a raw bend to the food which serves the likes of one and all.
When it comes to the organic coffee, it is sourced from an exclusive Woolloongabba roaster. This café also serves tea for the non-coffee drinkers whereby the organic brews come from tea makers of Melbourne like Chamellia, along with raw smoothies of multiple flavours. For those who wish to enjoy the café during the night, this café already has plans to serve beer, cider & local wine within the next six months along with night time nibbles.
