Since opening its doors in 2021, Marco Polo Kitchen has solidified itself as a go-to spot in The City for wholesome bites and caffeine fixes. Now, those working and playing on the George Street end of town don’t need to trek too far during their break to get a taste of the goodness. Owners Jacqueline Madden and Victoria Parker have opened a second venue, Georgio’s, at the base of the Brisbane Quarter precinct boasting bright whites, marble finishes and deluxe banquette seating. Georgio’s mirrors the successful formula that Marco Polo embodies – expertly made Bear Bones coffee paired with a nourishing menu of deli-style breakfast and lunch options. The team has worked once again with nutritionist Jacqui Toumbas to create the menu, with the chefs preparing everything fresh daily in house. Expect to find a selection of Italian piadinas (street food-style flatbread sandwiches), classic deli sandwiches, fresh salads, rotating soups, nourish bowls and more, alongside Doughcraft pastries and decadent doughnuts from Doughluxe (another of Jacqueline’s projects). Early birds can fill their bellies with breakfast bites like toasted sourdough with spreads, mango and coconut overnight oats, zucchini and aged-cheddar frittata, and Wholly crumpets with local honey.
