Summer Freshness


We can never go past a fresh salad from Simply Duo.  This chicken salad is just one of their tempting menu items that is sure to hit the spot on that hot summer day.

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.
