VALENTINA CAFE HAS CLOSED AND IS NOW ION CAFE & BAR.
Valentina in Mitchelton i one of Brisbane's cutest cafes, occupying a cosy cottage with white picket fence and offering breakfast, lunch and excellent Colombian coffee.
Located on Irvine Street, off Samford Road, Valentina Cafe is picture perfect with white picket fence, bright red trim, timber stools, recycled tables and hanging baskets of blooms; where customers can unwind on Valentina’s veranda with a steaming cup of Valentina Coffee - a special range of Arabica beans imported from a small estate in Colombia and roasted locally.
The breakfast menu includes avocado on toast, toasted muesli with natural yoghurt and fresh fruit or make your own; choosing from free range eggs, sourdough, arepas, avocado, spinach, mushrooms, homemade beans, bacon, chorizo and haloumi.
Lunch options include beef burgers, roast veggie wraps, frittatas and arepas (Colombian corn cakes) with shredded beef, chicken or salsa. Valentina’s caters for all with vegetarian choices such as scrambled tofu with pesto cherry tomatoes, spinach and chilli or quinoa salad with mango and feta; while sweet tooths will be satiated with a selection of sweets like pistachio and cranberry slice or caramel tarts.
Besides Colombian brew, Valentina’s serves tea, milkshakes, smoothies, frappes and salpicóns – a Colombian fruit cocktail.
