New Farm Deli
New Farm Deli has risen from the ashes less than five months after burning down, bigger and better than ever.
Since its establishment in 1975, this iconic Italian deli and cafe has kept locals supplied with their fix of prosciutto, parmigiano, gorgonzola, Sicilian olives, biscotti, and more.
Brisbane's oldest and most authentic Italian deli is renowned for its high quality gourmet goods and specialty fine foods from around the world including hard-to-find European ingredients that are essential for preparing traditional dishes at home.
Timber shelves are filled with Italian staples such as olive oils, vinegars, sauces, pastas, preserves and much more; while deli counters display an abundance of cured meats, antipasto, and cheeses with over a thousand different varieties of Australian and international cheese.
In addition, there's fresh house baked focaccia and locally made artisan breads, sold along with delicious take-home meals. The deli also stocks a fantastic selection of boutique European wines, from a fruity French rosé to a bold Italian red.
Meanwhile, the deli cafe is the perfect place to indulge in a homemade cannoli and expertly brewed cup of coffee, or sample the fabulous fare on offer like flaky croissants and savoury muffins, mouth-watering mozzarella en carrozza (golden-fried mozzarella sandwich with bocconcini and leg ham) and hearty pasta dishes such as the deli's popular sand crab lasagna.
