It fills me with joy seeing the Brisbane food scene constantly expanding. The suburb of West End has been flourishing as of late with one of it’s newest additions Plenty. Decked out in teal and timber, the secluded ex-warehouse is away from the hustle and bustle of West End yet still in prime position for the weekend markets and for those looking for a little foodie adventure in the suburbs.
Divided into a neat coffee nook and food store, Plenty has a rustic fit out with bare timber scaffolding that is delightfully light and airy. A long timber trestle table lays in the middle of the store, welcoming the idea of communal sharing while vintage style metal chairs and tables as well as palate crates adorn the floor. It’s the type of set up that welcomes you at any time of day whether you are short for time and just want a quick coffee or can sit back and relax over a late lunch.
Aiming to shine a spotlight on our local region’s plentiful harvest, Plenty serves up a simple and honest food philosophy tacked to its wholesome heart. With a large open air kitchen and all produce are sourced direct from small-scale makers using farm-fresh ingredients, Plenty’s menu changes daily and believe me, the decision of what to have is super hard! As an avid avo on toast lover, I couldn’t go past one accompanied with creamy mozzarella, hand picked basil, roasted vine tomatoes and a superb balsamic glaze all on locally baked sourdough.
With a cabinet overflowing with salads and delectable treats including raspberry and chocolate brownies and gluten-free mandarin and almond cake, we also went back for dessert, a decadent caramel and fig number served with sweetened mascapone. It was light, fluffy and full of real vanilla, speckled throughout the classic pale sponge, YUM! Plenty also serves up a wonderful brew by Org.
So if you are in the area and are looking for an honest and utterly delicious serving of local and organic goodness and warm hospitality, Plenty will surely have plenty on offer for you!
