My Very Own Deli Cafe

Posted on Jan 6, 2011 in Foodie Buzz

It’s gotta a very nice ring to it doesn’t it……

Ever since I can remember I have dreamt of owning my very own café / deli. The thought of packing a room full of all my favourite foods and sharing them with the world just seems perfect to me.

I purchased a couple of books on the Amazon site yesterday to help me towards my goal. I’m not sure they’re going to be any good; all the reviews said these 2 were full of helpful business tips, fingers crossed. I contemplated doing a small business course but I’m going to read these first and see how I go. I’ll have a few skills to bring forth from my Public Relations studies at University too.

I’ve been looking at designs today, probably the last thing I should be looking at, but hey. Theresa’s Gourmet Deli & Cafe below looks homely and inviting which are two things I really look for in a venue. I like the plants out the front and the stone finish on the building.

Olive is a specialist food shop and cafe in Dublin. Again I love the stone front and the plants. I think awnings like this improve a shop fronts visual appeal ten-fold, again it’s the warm welcoming factor I’m drawn too.

I love full length window fronts and if possible the street sitting is something I like too.

I also found this gorgeous little Deli Cafe in Finland called Sis Deli + Cafe. Their layout is so clean and modern. I love the consistency that flows through-out their store and labelling. The little serving platters and paper takeaway bags are cute as! The black and white Burberry portrays a very chic look. I just love everything about it.

Don’t you just LOVE IT!!!

There is a lot of preparing to do but looking into it more and more is getting this young lady very excited.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance.


  1. Wonderful words Lyssa! That's definitely the motto 🙂

  2. Looks and sounds fabulous. I think you follow the "build it and they will come philosphy" and you can't go wrong with that. 🙂

  3. Great blog read Kirsten! Glad to wrote about the places at Woolloongabba. I was just looking at some of them yesterday myself for my bday! Good luck with your dream of the deli! Id be a regular for sure!
