Frida Kahlo's Summer House

Kangaroo Point

Frida Kahlo's Summer House is a bright and airy al fresco Mexican cafe nestled on a quiet street corner in Kangaroo Point.

Inspired by Frida Kahlo's La Casa Azul (Blue House), where the iconic Mexican painter was born, lived with her husband Diego Rivera and later died, the cafe's decor is bold and vibrant - think cobalt blue walls - with colourful paintings of the artist adorning the walls.

While dining is limited inside, there's plenty of seating provided outside in a shaded courtyard surrounded by lush, tropical plants.

The perfect spot for a leisurely brunch, the Mexican-influenced menu ranges from Huevos Rancheros (free-range eggs served on a corn tortilla with red and green house-made salsa), Maya's Breakfast (guacamole and grilled, garlic mushrooms on sourdough) and Chilaquiles or Breakfast Nachos - crispy corn chips smothered with shredded chicken, sour cream, house-made salsa and feta.

Otherwise, there's the signature Frida's Breakfast (sourdough toast with avocado, free-range eggs, mushrooms, spinach, tahini dressing and dukkah) and Diego's Breakfast  - a big breakfast of eggs, bacon, chorizo, haloumi, hash brown and sourdough.

For the health conscious, there's an acai bowl filled with house-made muesli and seasonal fruit, plus a selection of delicious detox juices such as the delightfully refreshing Summer Fresh (watermelon, rock melon, green melon, ginger and mint).

Coffee on pour is Campos, served along with Frida's Chai Latte and traditional Mexican drinks like Horchata (rice water flavoured with cinnamon) and Agua de Jamaica (Hibiscus Tea).
