Walk Rome’s cobblestone paths and experience a taste of Italia without ever leaving home in Brisbane’s newest laneway. From July 3rd until the end of September, a little piece of Italy is popping-up in West End with West Village welcoming foodie favourites Salt Meats Cheese and Gelato Messina to lush Laneway WV.

When it comes to coffee, Salt Meat Cheese knows best. Drawing guests into the lane every morning from 7.00am with the aroma of freshly-ground espresso and lattes will be their onsite roastery, manned by an expert Italian-trained barista. Pairing perfectly will be delicate pastries from Montrachet.

“Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Laneway WV’s Salt Meats Cheese pop-up will offer fan-favourites such as their wood-fired pizzas and cheese wheel pasta. Think bruschetta with feta for breakfast, a generous bowl of Gnocchi Gorgonzola with Tarfuto for lunch, and crispy slices of Porchetta for dinner,” said West Village’s Project Director Andrew Thompson.

“Adding to the excitement, popular dessert makers Gelato Messina will be popping up in West Village during July, making Laneway WV Brisbane’s ultimate foodie destination.”

Love the idea of delicious coffee but far from an early-riser? In that case, have your coffee shot in an espresso martini straight from the Salt Meats Cheese’s boutique container bar, curated by the ultimate Sydney mixologists Archie Rose. Prepare to sip on native drops while listening to live music amongst a backdrop of lush greenery and twinkling fairy lights.

As night falls in Laneway WV, look no further than Gelato Messina to end the evening on a sweet note. The month of July will see guests warm up with their exclusive hot chocolate, the Bombe Choc Alaska made rich with dulce de leche gelato and topped with toasted marshmallow.

Served alongside this deluxe treat will be Gelato Messina’s custom-made mini gelato cakes. Passionfruit lovers will adore their cream cheese gelato creation Goin’ Round The Twist with passionfruit insert and yellow macaron, while the popular Dr Evil’s Magic Mushroom and Cocoa Peaks cakes are sure to satisfy.

Open seven days a week – meaning seven days of absolute bellissimo – Laneway WV is the destination for those looking to grab a slice of the Italian way of life.

No need to book that plane ticket just yet aficionados – take a stroll down Laneway WV.
