Cafe Decor “The Realm Espresso Cafe — Westend”
The Realm a revived cafe space on Boundary Street, Westend
By definition a realm is a ”region, sphere, or domain within which anything occurs,prevails, or dominates”
and in this case, I would have to say it’s the realm of delicious food and amazing customer service!
(and not to mention excellent music taste, hello BeeGees!)
Owners Andrew and Elisa Karseras draw inspiration from their
Mediterranean culinary traditions to create new contemporary dishes
Pasta Di Mandorla – freshly baked by Andrew!
Elisa’s twin cousins are the Junior Master Chef winners Isabella & Sofia – they’ve recently released a family cookbook!
What a family of foodies!
Here’s Elisa & her famous quiches!
a marriage of Greek and Italian flavours … can’t think of a more perfect union!
the haloumi wrap; generous, thick pita breads with chewy haloumi & fresh greens
giving traditional poached eggs a twist– with garlic yoghurt & paprika butter dressing!
the creative addition of the yoghurt creates a mild sourness that balances perfectly with the richness of butter and egg,
oh so appetising!
They proudly serve Elixir coffee, a Brisbane Based coffee roaster owned & operated by two brothers– Jason and David Narciso.
Their family has been dedicated to purveying excellent coffees for two generations,
they started the first wholesale and retail roasting house in Queensland back in the 80′s!
Cool mural art by Andrew (who’s a bit of a polymath!) an entrepreneur stemming from a printing background,
he’s also a talented artist with his own collection of ‘Quiet Riot’ screen printed tshirts
Quiet Riot can be found at the cafe as well as various designer markets from Melbourne to Brisbane!
