Solo Espresso. A Marvel for Coffee Lovers

Solo Expresso

Q: Where did the idea for Solo Espresso come from?
A: Solo means one. One means unique. Our aim is to build a unique coffee shop in this area where customers can enjoy the best coffee and foods with a totally relaxing and friendly ambience. The idea was first conceived when we were working in the coffee industry – we have gained valuable experience and insight and decided that people deserved better quality coffee and better service.

Q: What’s so good about you guys?
A: We are perfectionists when it comes to the coffee and foods offered at Solo Espresso. The beans used in Solo Espresso are specially selected and roasted daily by Ken to ensure they are of the freshest quality. The All Day Breakfast and Light Meals are lovingly prepared by Alicia who has designed and revised the menu to perfection. Our drinking chocolates, MOFO deluxe and KOKO deluxe use top of the range African Red Cocoa and Australian Cane Sugar which gives our drinking chocolate a slight red tint. All of our teas and chocolate are fair trade certified and organic and we use environmentally friendly takeaway containers. From making and roasting coffee to running the business, we strive to provide the best experience.

Q: What else can you tell us about Solo Espresso?
A: Even if you are not a coffee fan you can still come and enjoy the top quality organic teas, ice frappe or a perfectly divine cold chocolate with a range of our homemade desserts. We also offer gluten-free alternatives with our meals upon request.

Maxwell & Lucy A Truly Unique Boutique

Maxwell & Lucy

Q: How did Maxwell & Lucy originate?
A: Maxwell & Lucy was born out of a collaboration between the two partners, Margaret and June. For years, we dreamed of and worked towards owning an independent boutique, which finally took root in June of 2012 after we came across the ideal shop front in Nundah.

Q: Why did you choose Nundah?
A: We choose Nundah as it is an upcoming, inner-city, suburb with tremendous prospects yet it still has a real “Village” feel about it. With the city on its doorstep, Nundah is rapidly on its way of becoming the next big suburb of Brisbane, which will drive more like-minded residents, visitors and shoppers our way.

Q: What’s great about Maxwell & Lucy:
A: We believe our secret is that our pieces are stylish, come in limited numbers, are made of wonderful fabrics and materials, and are all at unexpected, easy-on-the-pocket prices. We like to think that our styles are Parisian Bohemian chic and we strive for our collection to be unique, and stand out from the rest.

Q: What’s your vision for the boutique:
A: Our vision for M&L is to continue growing and searching for more diverse, unique and quality products for our customers. To complement our own label and designs, we will be introducing small, independent designers whose products match our philosophy.

We are excited to be part of Nundah’s growing success and look forward to bringing more sartorial style to the Village. Drop in at Maxwell & Lucy Boutique and say hello, We would love to meet you.

Refreshingly Twisted

We caught up with the lads from Slightly Twisted refreshment lounge…

Who are the Slightly Twisted guys?
We are Patrick, Nicholas and Diego. Patrick is a former flight attendant and radiation therapist originally from Canada, now onto career number three.  Nicholas is a former truck-driver turned hairdresser with a penchant for the twisted and bizarre.  Diego is a flight attendant originally from Argentina.  He is the so-called “not-so-silent-partner” in Slightly Twisted.

Where did the idea for Slightly Twisted come from? Opening a cafe was a long-term plan for Patrick which was brought forward by a work accident and a dare from Nicholas. Hence Slightly Twisted Refreshment Lounge was born.

What do people find good about this place? 

We are Nundah’s friendliest hangout where prejudices and attitude need to be left at the door before entering.  We are neither a cafe nor a restaurant.  We are a refreshment lounge.  We offer a range of delicious treats both sweet and savoury to enjoy over a cup or two of Octane Coffee, or one of our popular twisted sodas while soaking up the atmosphere and listening to what is probably Brisbane’s most eclectic musical playlist. This is a place where you can leave the mundane world behind for a while.

We hear you won an award recently, tell us more… Slightly Twisted was recently nominated for and won the Quest Newspapers “Best New Business 2012” award.  The nomination came as a real surprise, and winning was an even bigger (but pleasant) shock.

What are your specialties?  We specialise in serving fantastic sweets presented in our own twisted way.  We serve up a pretty mean cup of coffee as well.  We also offer a range of savouries and platters to share over a bottle of wine or two with some friends (BYO wine and friends).  We can also arrange to supply our platters and other items for functions and other small to medium events.

What else can you tell us about Slightly Twisted?  We are constantly searching for new ways to make Slightly Twisted Refreshment Lounge the best place to be in the Village. From live music to trivia nights and other surprises yet to come.  Pop in and say hello, this is a place you wouldn’t expect in Nundah.
