Hello and thank you for reading this article. I'm a freelance writer living in Brisbane and I love to write about all the wonderful things happening in our community.

Putia Pure Heaven
I was lucky enough to stumble upon one of Brisbane's most lovely and sought after cafes. Putia Pure Food Kitchen is located in the heart of Banyo and lights up an otherwise ordinary street with its wonderful aroma and authentic charm.
The word 'Putia' is an old Sicilian word which means local store or local shop. Here, in this lovely little space, you will find beautiful fresh food, cakes and coffee. The range of dishes and boutique drinks prepared in Putia's open kitchen reflect the love of their diverse cuisines with a focus on freshness and simplicity, featuring local produce and edible herbs and flowers from their very own garden.
Located on Royal Parade, this is a place not to be missed. Their delicious meals and great Wolff coffee are only just the beginning. Their menu is extensive and has everything covered from breakfast to lunch. The ambience created in their thoughtfully adorned space makes you feel calm, cool and relaxed, just like any good cafe should. The music that swims through the air is relaxing, charming and tasteful, which for me, is a big plus.
Feeling like something sweet for brunch? How about some Sicilian ricotta cannoli doughnuts with whipped ricotta, passionfruit curd, passionfruit sorbet, toasted meringue, berries and white chocolate pistachio crumb? Yum!

Or how about something savoury? Don't be fooled by simplicity. These bacon and eggs were the perfect way to link up the gap between breakfast and lunch to make the perfect brunch.
Putia Pure Food Kitchen is not only a wonderful place for dining but it is also a space for learning and creating. Putia run cooking classes and workshops with a focus on world cuisines as well as specific classes on gluten free, vegetarian and healthy eating. These cooking classes are suitable for everyone from beginners to experienced cooks.
Putia Pure Food Kitchen is open during the day for dining and open in the evenings specifically for private dinners, events and workshops. They are also available for hire for functions, weddings and birthdays. Its warm inviting space creates the perfect location for any occasion.
