Kunara Organic Cafe Albion Brisbane

With the popularity of  the Kunara Organic Cafe on the Sunshine Coast, attracting visitors from far and wide, including many from Brisbane, the demand for us to find Cafe sites beyond the Sunshine Coast became apparent. Hence on 24th January 2014 at 77 Hudson Road, we opened our first cafe in Brisbane: Kunara Organic Cafe in Albion.

Awarded to Sunshine Coast Cafe

Welcome to our Kunara Organic Cafe, Albion, Brisbane 

Just like when visiting our 'big sister' on the Sunshine Coast (albeit a little less extensive),  you will find great, organic Montville Coffee (made with Mt Beerwah Spring Water), a fabulous selection of Smoothies, Gluten Free Cakes and Sweets, Raw Chocolate, Salads, filled Paninis and other nutritious and delicious organic and gluten free food.

Our food is 95% organic & gluten free, with a  variety of vegan and raw options available.Try our wonderful concoctions of fresh smoothies that will put a spring into your step; they’re pure body-fuel!

 

   
   

Unlike our Cafe on the Sunshine Coast, we're small and intimate with limited seating, but offer the best take-away coffees, smoothies, lunches and snacks in the area ... some say in Brisbane! 

                               

Please note that there are no microwaves in our kitchen. To retain the integrity and goodness of our real food, it needs to be gently warmed.  This does take a little longer so please ensure to bring a little time with you so you can truly enjoy your meal.

From the day we opened, without any marketing or launch event, the Cafe in Albion has been a hit with locals.  Come and visit Barista Mel & her team and put us to the test. Let us know what you think on 

We're currently only open Monday to Friday from 7am to 3pm but we invite Brisbanites to take the 50 minute drive north to our Cafe at Kunara Organic Marketplace at Forest Glen (Bruce Hwy Exit 200) to experience Kunara Organic Cafe for a special weekend breakfast or lunch, with a much more extensive range of delicious and nutritious meals. Combine your visit with some great organic shopping at Australia's largest one-stop-destination for everything natural and organic - Kunara Organic Marketplace - or just enjoy all  that the Sunshine Coast has to offer.

Menu* Please note that  in both Cafe locations we have a daily changing menu as we only use the freshest and best seasonal produce available at the time

Water Bottle Swap Station

We also offer a Water Bottle Swap Station for wonderfully fresh and pure Mount Beerwah Spring Water.

Purchase an emptly 10L bottle for $6.95, fill it up for $4.50 then when it's empty just drop in the empty and leave with a full bottle. Swap cost $4.50

 Testimonials

Hi, I visited your Brisbane cafe this morning. I had the granola with the coconut yoghurt and berry compote. It was sublime. I was really looking forward to visiting this morning. When I got there the venue and surrounds made me a little bit disappointed but then the quality of the food totally made up for it. It's great to have great organic quality options in Brisbane. So much is hum drum and poor quality ingredients. Thank you. I'll be back  I teach a Pilates class at 6am in Newmarket and will be coming here for breakfast again
