Locavore Café brings ethical fare to Woolloongabba
A charming new cafe has opened on Logan Road, dishing up local, ethical and sustainable nosh in Woolloongabba.
Our fortuitous location in the centre of Southeast Queensland means we need look no further than our own backyard for a bounty of fresh produce and active growers and producers. Nathan Olsson, the man behind Woolloongabba’s new Locavore Café, is embracing this truth and supporting our local community by sourcing all ingredients for the venue within a 160-km radius of the Logan Road site. Nathan has handpicked a bunch of inspiring small food businesses, from Brisbane’s Bee One Third Neighbourhood Honey to Goomburra’s Echo Valley Farms, to bring his vision for an ethically aware cafe to life. Seasonal produce from Food Connect is teamed with bread from Crust & Co. Artisan Baking and animal products from Meat at Billy’s, Witches Chase Cheese and Barambah Organics, to offer breakfast, lunch and sweet treats seven days, plus all-day breakfast on weekends.
Start the day with a hearty bowl of mixed wholegrain porridge with poached rhubarb and pear, vanilla milk and toasted hazelnuts; a warm stack of gingerbread pancakes with clotted cream, fresh figs and Bee One Third honeycomb; or grass-fed corned beef fritters with wilted greens, a poached egg and hot house sauce. Browse the cabinet for the weekday lunch selection of salads and sandwiches or settle in for a warming lamb rendang or ricotta gnocchi. Byron Bay’s legendary Marvell Street Coffee Roasters is providing the Daily Grind house blend, as well as rotating single origins such as the current Colombian La Virgen and filter-style Colombian Enrique Alvarez. Non-coffee drinkers can grab a cup of organic Mayde Tea or a hot chocolate made on Bunker’s Heirloom Chocolate.
