After 12,000 reads, it’s probably time to say “Thanks!” I appreciate you stopping by and coming back for more. For me, it’s about spreading a bit of joy and pulling people up to say, “Hey, did you notice that …?”
Looking for a new place to eat in Brisbane City?
Opened 8 weeks ago, aja coffeehouse offers a fresh and well-priced menu of Asian-fusion dishes, Aussie burgers and continental breakfasts or simply a place for coffee and a dessert.
Service is quick and professional and the premises are spotless. You could go there for a work-lunch (as I have done, several times), girls’ catch-up, brekky or casual date and feel welcome.
I’ve taken some of my fussiest friends there, and aja hasn’t missed a beat. The salt ‘n pepper calamari is unbelievably good and the presentation, lovely. Take my advice: Say YES to the fries (crispy, salty, sweet and spicy!). Your low-carb day can wait.
aja is located at the Charlotte St entrance to Elizabeth Arcade and is open Monday to Thursday 7am-6pm, Friday 7am-9pm and Saturday 9am-9pm (closed Sunday). Catering is available with 48 hours notice ph. (07) 3161 2691.
Opening a business in this economy is gutsy. Aja is a young, family outfit and they’re really very good. Give them some love, Brisbane.
Take a look at these Miss Piggy cupcakes (from Cup-a-Cake, Chermside).
They look easy enough to make, if you’re so inclined: 2 cut marshmellows for the ears and snout, dots of chocolate gel for eyes and snout and a sugar flower on top of your pink iced cupcake.
I might take some of these to work to share. After all, we should take work seriously, but not ourselves.
