A south side sibling for Wilston fav Alcove Cafe & Deli and Teneriffe's much-loved Samson & Sophie, Esher St Café & Deli is from the same talented pair behind these enduring cafes and Bulimba’s florist and gift shop Stalks & Stems.

As well as the eclectic street furniture out front and the cosy old general-store like interior, out back of the café is the prized covered courtyard fashioned from upcycled and recycled pallets, palings, crates and the like, which has a bonus little play area for children.
