A taste of Colombia for breakfast?

Valentina Cafe


As the beans in my coffee were growing, I bet they never imagined ending up as a drink in a cute suburban cafe in Brisbane. The coffee beans in question grew in the highlands of Colombia and have since become part of the unique Valentina Coffee Blend which I now sip from my stool behind a white picket fence in Mitchelton.

Valentina Colombian Coffee


Valentina Cafe has recently relocated a little further along Blackwood Street, and has had a cool retro makeover in the process. It feels a bit like dropping into a friend's house for a visit with recycled timber stools, a budding flower garden and home made cakes/biscuits/goodies waiting on the front counter.

Colombian Shredded Beef Arepas ($10) with Scrambled Tofu behind


In line with the signature blend sustainable coffee, there is a distinct Colombian/wholesome flavor to the menu. I ordered traditional Colombian Shredded Beef Arepas (corn cakes - gluten free) which were a great mid morning pick me up with a cup of Valentina coffee. They also had an extensive range of cool summer frappes, smoothies, wraps, burgers, salads, sourdough breads, chorizos and haloumi on offer. For the kids, they have high chairs, babycinnos and an entertaining toy box.

Valentina Cafe is an excellent newcomer to Brisbane's northside cafe scene, and I especially recommend stopping in if you need a little rest from the hustle and bustle at the Mitchelton Markets (held on the first Sunday of each month).
