Birds And Bees Cafe
The combination of Colombian food and music creates a relaxed fiesta vibe at Birds And Bees Cafe in Everton Hills.
Many tables are arranged beneath the large undercover balcony overlooking the treetops, and parents will certainly appreciate the fully fenced children's play area complete with chalkboard and miniature tables and chairs. Look out for storytelling and craft activities during the school holidays.
Keen observers at Birds And Bees Cafe will notice the clever bird theme along one wall and the busy bee theme along the other, with plenty of home cooked food and single origin Colombian coffee in the middle.
The Acai Bowl is an excellent healthy breakfast option, and it would be difficult to go past their brekky burrito, eggs benny, or bacon and egg rolls. For lunch, there is a tempting Chilli Con Carne or even a steak sandwich.
Delicious Colombian specialties on the menu include empanadas (meat filled parcels), arepas (traditional corn bread), huevos pericos (scrambled eggs) and the hearty calentado (traditional workers breakfast). Superfood smoothies, herbal teas, Charlie's Juices, coconut water, and kombucha drinks provide plenty of options for quenching the thirst, and there are an enticing array of sweet treats to choose from at the counter.
Nice to know: Birds And Bees Cafe is the latest venture by the owners of the ever popular Valentina Cafe, in nearby Mitchelton.
Need to know: Birds And Bees Cafe welcomes dogs, and there is plenty of car parking available onsite within the On Q Shopping Plaza.
