Pancha Cafe


Pancha Cafe is a delightful, family owned and operated vegan cafe in Hamilton serving delicious plant-based fare for breakfast and lunch. 

Formerly known as Little Digs, the tiny vegan cafe has relocated from the Valley onto Racecourse Road, a short stroll from the Brisbane River.

The rustic industrial decor features exposed bricks and concrete with an olive green feature wall and plenty of plants, with seating inside and outside undercover in a little laneway. 

The menu boasts wholesome fare made with fresh veggies grown on the family's farm in the Southern Downs, along with farm fresh produce sourced from local farmers in the Darling Downs and Granite Belt regions.

All day brekky includes house-made cinnamon and coconut granola served with homemade coconut yoghurt and seasonal fruit, Pancha pancakes topped with grilled bananas, maple syrup and whipped vegan butter, and croffles - a delectable cross between a croissant and a waffle.
