What do you love most about what you do?
Meeting our customers and providing great service.
Do you have any predictions for the food industry?
I think hospitality is going through a difficult phase at the moment due to all of the bad things that have happened lately. It will bounce back though, and Brisbane is going from strength to strength when it comes to dining and coffee.
About Toasted Cafe, Everton Park
Good food and great coffee come together at Toasted Café on South Pine Road in Everton Park. This fun and funky caffeine stop resonates with the buzz of lively conversation as guests relax in surrounds of whitewashed walls adorned with local artwork, blackboards with tempting specials and a display cabinet full of sweet treats. For all-day breakfast the way it should be, stop in for a stack of pancakes, with seasonal fruit, maple syrup and vanilla bean ice cream; or feta and spring onion potato hash cakes, with tomato chilli jam, lemon yoghurt sauce and poached eggs. The lunch crowd hangs out with an iced latte and Caesar wrap with egg, bacon, chicken, greens, cheese and aioli, or opt for a garden salad of tomato, red onion, capsicum, feta, avocado and honey mustard dressing.
