This is one coffee shop that offers something different
If you are driving through Currumundi, keep an eye out on the left as you cross the bridge. Tucked in off the side of the road, straight after the service station, is this unique coffee shed. Made from a steel container, painted in stunning black and red, this novel idea has emerged from a young couple, Kate and Pete. Izba means "Little Hut" - a Russian name springing from Kate's homeland. Izba opened in February 2013.
Although we had just eaten lunch, we couldn't resist a hot choccie, with accompanying marshmellows of course! The only healthier choice was the soy milk instead of cow's milk and yes, it was delicious.
They used a brand of coffee I hadn't seen before, "Fonzie Abbot" from Brisbane, which I'm told is rich and flavoursome. Izba also offered a large range of teas if you prefer that option.
They offer a tasty range of snacks; from ham and cheese toasties, vege frittata, bacon and chicken toasties, fresh baked muffins, 'white blondie' - a macadamia nut brownie and other delectables.
This is one stop that's a must, if nothing more, to support a novel idea. The food looked excellent, although there wasn't much left the day we visited - a good sign - (it was after 2 pm) and the little outdoor courtyard had a home grown touch with its hanging baskets and pretty flowers in bloom.
