Delizioso on Oxford

Home > Brisbane > Restaurants | Cafes
Published June 21st 2012
With last Saturday delivering unseasonably pleasant weather, a few friends and I decided an impromptu catch-up was in order. We agreed to meet at our usual, Oxford Street in Bulimba, only to find that our regular haunts were completely packed- seemingly most of Brisbane had the same idea as us.

Heading back to where we parked, a friend spotted Delizioso, in the corner space formerly occupied by Chill Bar. For some reason, I've never taken note of Delizioso, despite it being open for nearly a year now.

We strolled over and were promptly directed to a lovely table on the footpath, with just the right amount of shade and sunshine. Water was served promptly by a friendly waitress, and coffee orders taken with an equal amount of eagerness. The wait staff didn't mind us requesting an extra 5 minutes (numerous times) to order food, and were seemingly familiar with and happy to customise the menu when quizzed by the two vegetarians in our company.

Lavazza coffees, while not a favourite roast of mine, were reasonably well made, one complaint being that the standard sizing seemed a little incongruous; my flat white being served in a tiny porcelain cup, with a friend's mocha coming in a huge tumbler.

We knew we were in for a treat when our food orders came out all together( despite a friend ordering a good ten minutes after everyone else) . My eggs (deliciously buttery), bacon and Turkish toast were just what I was after, and moderately priced at $16.

The real scene stealer of the table, though, was the pancakes with vanilla ice cream and a berry compote and sauce. At only $14, they were impeccably presented and perfectly cooked- fluffy yet satisfying.

In all, we had an overwhelmingly pleasant experience with Delizioso on Oxford Street. While the coffee left a little to be desired, the location and setting is relaxed and open (and perfect for people watching), and the food is simple, good value, and indeed 'delizioso'.
