Wholesome food in Herston cafe
Coffee anyone?

This one time corner store has been creatively transformed into an appealing and casual Herston cafe. The larger than life colourful chalk mural (of a woman caressing her coffee cup) on the back wall commands attention in the inside seating area. Cafe Gia offers outside seating on the curb, as well as an undeveloped garden area at the side of the building.

The original wooden, french doors have been retained at the entrance to welcome guests and give a glimpse into the past.

Come on in to Cafe Gia

On the chilly day that I visited, I was warmed by a classic, spicy pumpkin and coconut soup. The Cafe Gia beef burger with baked sweet potato wedges was a close second.

The food is hearty and wholesome and the staff are focussed and efficient. My genovese cappuccino arrived with a real chocolate sprinkled on he bed of white, frothy milk. Such a nice touch. Herston is starved of cafes so Cafe Gia fills the local gap.


Street parking is available along Butterfield Street. (Cafe Gia is close of Ballymore Oval for rugby fans).
