Kith 'n' Chow is a groovy, garden oasis café found tucked away in the backstreets of Mt Gravatt alongside Best Florist and Espresso Bar.
While Dad runs the flower shop and makes well-brewed cups of coffee, Susie Nam and sisters serve breakfast and brunch next door at Kith 'n' Chow - an alfresco café perched on a patch of astro turf with an eclectic mix of tables and chairs and retro caravan kitchen.
The small menu, done well, includes housemade roasted maple granola, bacon and egg stack, grilled haloumi salad bowl, beetroot hummus or Buttermilk Waffles (house-made with choice of matcha milk or maple syrup, fresh fruit and whipped cream).
If you can't decide, try the highly-recommended Kith 'n' Chow platter for two with a little bit of everything: pan seared cherry tomatoes, grilled haloumi, mixed mushrooms, free range fried eggs, bacon, smoked salmon, fresh salad greens with housemade herb vinaigrette, homemade granola, Greek yoghurt with fresh fruit and toasted sourdough.
Besides coffee, there are fruit juices like Green Glory, Sunrise and Pinkle - a delicious concoction of watermelon, granny smith apples and lemon - and smoothies such as banana and honey, strawberries and banana, berry and peanut butter. There's even a Smoothie Bowl whihc is a meal unto itself.
Nice to know - There's also a kids menu or Toast, Bacon & Eggs or Buttermilk Waffle.
