Wau Kitchen

Kangaroo Point

Wau Kitchen in Kangaroo Point is a funky African inspired eatery with a friendly vibe offering Afro-fusion fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Perched on Main Street, a short stroll to Kangaroo Points Cliff Park, this unpretentious eatery with the shabby shopfront provides dining inside decked out with rattan chairs and wicker lampshades, and outside in a quaint courtyard complete with potted plants.

The flavour-filled menu features dishes that originate from all over Africa including delicious breakfast fare; from Foul Mudaummas (fava beans, boiled eggs and bread), and brown lentils served with eggs your way on a bed of spinach, to a classic bacon and egg breakfast wrap with an African twist, served in freshly made roti bread.
