Cafe Noma offers a warm welcome, nourishing food and great coffee in a tastefully decorated setting within a Wavell Heights shopping strip.
Smiling faces greet customers as they place orders with owner, Ramon Olsen and his team. Whether eating on the run or settling in for a leisurely catch up, there are some seriously delicious options to enjoy.
For those looking for a quick pick-me-up, Merlo coffee, organic Tea Tonic teas, smoothies and fresh juices are on offer. The special detox juice might just be the answer after a big weekend or a late night.
Sweet temptations are sourced from Brisbane based and Australian owned patisserie, The Great Australian Bite. Piña colada cakes and gluten free chocolate walnut brownies are a great place to start but get in early before Cecil* has morning tea.
Made with fresh produce from the Brisbane markets and breads from Le Sebastian of West End, savoury options at Cafe Noma (all prepared on site) include Cecil's favourite - avocado on sourdough with sun dried tomato and ham, tasty bacon and egg wraps and a variety of bagels.
Proving popular is the pork belly sandwich with fennel, tarragon and apple slaw and the "chicken out" wrap (free range chicken, avocado and sun dried tomato). Weekends see bircher muesli with warm rhubarb and strawberry compote added to the menu, along with mini brunch items which are posted on the Cafe Noma Facebook page.
Whether catching the breeze outdoors or enjoying the intimate seating inside, this is a great spot to catch up, and parking is easy. Four legged friends are welcome with a water bowl outside at the ready for thirsty pooches.
Need to know - In the near future an all day breakfast menu will be introduced which will see old favourites given a unique Cafe Noma twist.
*So who is Cecil? Let's just say he's a special member of the team at Cafe Noma. Call in and make his acquaintance - he's the strong, silent type and a man of few words.
