Popped in to check out the range of produce and was pleasantly surprised by the array and quality of fresh and gourmet foods offered for purchase. It's quality here, much like James street grocer in the Valley, and to that end the prices to some degree reflect this but it's a price you easily pay for a marvellously tasty product.... More

Living 1 mins walk away this place is normally amazing.... but after a 12 hr work day and paying $15 for a "take home meal" which consisted of a piece of roast pumpkin, half a roast onion and maybe 50 grams of beef stroganoff I won't be back for a meal. Coffee is good tho

This is the neighbourhood drop in deli cum fruit shop - easy parking. Huge range of stuff and a big welcome every time. We go there most days for something or other. Great coffee and open from 6am till 8 pm.

The coffee here is always well-made, with a cute little gingerbread man atop. A magnificent array of fresh and packaged foods from the grocery store inside, premade meals to grab-and-go, and oh-so-friendly staff. I have been known to driver over an hour and a half out of my way just to stop here for a coffee, snack and quick top-up... More

We encountered this food emporium when looking for something gourmet to take back to our AirBnB for lunch on our first day in Bulimba/Hawthorne and we were certainly not disappointed. Their extensive range of food items was mind blowing covering all genres and fortunately for us as finicky vegetarians/gluten-free we were also well catered for. You can also eat-in at... More

We have dropped in regularly for coffee and had a good look through the deli section. Well setup to supply the surrounding community with lovely fruit and veg, deli items and pre prepped meals for those late evenings. Something for everyone. Coffee was of reasonable quality (I drink black), snacks and sandwiches on the expensive side but very tasty.

Thank Bukashaus
