Brisbane has quickly been gaining an impressive reputation for being a hot destination for foodies, rivaling even the likes of Sydney and Melbourne all thanks to a hot wave of trendy cafés and restaurants popping up all over the Sunshine States capital.
Contributing to this reputation is Café Ku-Tea, a quaint and trendy café with a charming cottage vibe, complete with gorgeous flowers and stylish decor. Set in the northern Brisbane suburb of Wilston, Café Ku-Tea is serving up fresh and exciting dishes to delight the tastebuds.
The café is pet-friendly; with lots of seating options outside, allowing pets to sit with water dishes whilst you enjoy your morning coffee. As we decided to take our dog for a walk, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the sun.
The menu had a good variety of options whist still being simple. I ordered the Swami; pumpkin, spinach and feta fritters with poached eggs topped with Dukkah seasoning, an avocado relish and a side salad ($17).
The meals came out in relatively good time, only taking around 15-20 minutes. My Swami both looked and smelled delightful. The dish was fresh and colourful and I was keen to dig in.
I started with cutting open the poached eggs. The yolk was just on the edge of being overdone; they were runny but not as runny as a poached eggs should be. However, they were still gooey enough to be quite enjoyable. The Dukkah season was the perfect match that really complemented the eggs and added an extra dimension to the whole dish.
The fritters were bursting with goodness. They were tasty and morish, the type of thing that you wanted to keep eating; add the avocado relish and it’s even harder to stop. Seasoned to perfection, the relish resembled a chunky guacamole; avocado, tomato and red onion all mashed into a delicious accompaniment.
The side salad was simple with lettuce, cherry tomatoes and a subtly flavoured dressing, yet was a necessary element to the dish.
The quality of the food that I had been served at Café Ku-Tea was extraordinary. I can’t remember having a breakfast that I enjoyed quite so much as what I have eaten here today. I implore you to make the trip to visit this amazing café. It’s a place that you don’t want to miss out on.
