I'm a freelance writer living in Brisbane who loves exploring quirky places with my dog. Join me on my quest to find, experience, and share fun things to do and interesting places to go.

Cafe, Kitchen, Bar
Verrano Café, Kitchen and Bar is located in Wilgarning Street in Stafford Heights, 7 km from the Brisbane CBD. It takes the majority of space in a small group of shops on this long and winding, suburban street. Veranno replaces "The Rusty Barrow" which until recently operated as a café on this site.

The Menu
As I started glancing through the menu, the first thing I noticed was an encouraging note at the top inviting guests to indulge in the things we want – "Eat the cake, drink the wine, buy the shoes." I'll remember that the next time I am tempted by a shiny, new pair of heels. But back to the café. I visited Verrano with much anticipation and was pleased to see that it offers an all day breakfast (until 2:30) as well as lunch from 11:30am and dinner from 5pm.



I decided to start with a chai latte ($4.00) and a cake from the cold cabinet located at the doorway entrance. For something more substantial, I found that lunch has some typical favourites like:

Chicken burger $18 or $23 with fries
Steak sandwich $17.50 or $22.50 with fries
Chicken terrine $14.50
Thai beef salad $16.50

An assortment of sides are also available including salad, grilled chicken and smoked salmon. As well as mains, dinner offers a selection of tapas with notable menu items including:

Arancini Balls $12.00
Duck pancakes $16.00
Calamari $14.00
Cheese tasting platter $18/24.00



Service and Venue
Veranno has indoor and outdoor seating – all undercover which is helpful in the unforgiving Queensland heat. The colour palette is monochrome with shiny black and white subway tiles being a feature of the interior along with black, industrial chairs and matte black coffee cups and plates. As its name suggests, it has an Italian vibe.

As extensive as the menu is and the freshness of the layout, unfortunately Veranno is let down by the service. (Maybe it is because it is new but my order went missing without a sorry for the delay or any follow up which was disappointing).

What else
Verrano is open 7 days and is spoilt for car parking space with a dedicated area at the back of the building and street parking. Overall, Verrano offers the temptation to indulge our senses but a little more attention to detail may be useful to satisfy our heart's desires.
