Plenty Westend

Plenty - late last year I’ve heard of a wonderful space that has opened in
one of the the large factory spaces along Montague Road,
if anything, I was instantly drawn to the logo!

Divided up into a cafe and food store, their mantra is to “Know your farmer”
which is also the name of their blog - an intriguing series of local food stories
(such a wonderful write up, I highly recommend subscribing to it!)

Bridging us with small scale makers and local artisans,
Plenty celebrates the bountiful harvest of our region and is reshaping the way we see food.

A lofty warehouse space with exposed timber and natural light
(reminds me of a little of Kitchen by Mike in Sydney!)

With a coffee nook out the front, a central food station / display cabinet
and an enormous kitchen in the back,
Plenty has plans to establish a complete food hub,
butcher’s bench, drying room,  roof apiary, preserving/pickling pantry and smokehouse

I love the large series of prints!

Dedicated to bringing local ingredients right to you -
those of us who are accustomed to seeking out locally grown or boutique products
probably know vendors all over Brissy,
however he work of tracking them down is beyond most shoppers.
Spaces like Plenty with their well curated selection provides
easy access to these independent makers!

Delicatezza

( I have cross posted this for one of my clients Nine Owls Tea !)

Delicatezza is a charming deli/cafe nestled in Mitchelton,
a bustling gourmand hub purveying a careful selection of deli products
from around the world.

The cafe menu is designed and prepared by chef and owner Peter Shaw (renown for his basil oil)
whilst the cakes and slices are freshly baked daily; a true commitment to delivering
handmade scrumptious food.

The outside of the cafe is rather inconspicuous
- it doesn’t immediately scream “we serve amazing food here”
But oh they do.

Good things come in bundles!

Congruent with their rustic, well curated spaces,
Samson & Sophie is cosy & chock full of fresh flowers and succulents
as well as interesting trinklets such as Happy Pills and Dandi goodies!

Serving Veneziano coffees and a wholesome, delicious menu,
I can’t get enough of their amazingness!
