Pablo’s Pantry: A new Greek cafe, deli and wine bar in Brisbane


Pablo’s Pantry is a new café, deli and wine bar in Woolloongabba, Queensland, owned and operated by mother-daughter duo Helen and Marissa Kentrotis.

Tucked away in the backstreets of the neighbourhoud, it provides an escape from the chaos and traffic of the area.

According to Broadsheet, it feels like Pablo’s Pantry was plucked from the Grecian isles. The fit-out, by Fortitude Valley interior designers Collectivus, is inspired by the Greek island of Cythira – the Kentrotis family’s ancestral home – with soft furnishings offset by the pastel banquet seating.

“There is nothing like this in Brisbane,” Marissa Kentrotis told Broadsheet. “We make everything here. I spent my childhood with Mum in the kitchen, and she spent her childhood watching my grandmother in the kitchen.”


All the items at Pablo’s are crafted daily using family recipes, ranging from cookies and muffins to pastitsio and spanakopita.

The breakfast menu includes a variety of traditional Australian dishes with added Greek influences, such as fried eggs come with pistachio-and-kale pesto, feta and “lots of herbs”.

Lunch includes a selection of sandwiches on sourdough and ciabatta sourced from Doughcraft in Albion. The most popular dish until now is the roast pork layered with apple sauce and coleslaw.

There’s also a distinct selection of character-driven drops from small-batch Australian winemakers, designed to reflect Greek tastes, and takeaway meals to reheat at home, including kefthedes pastitsio and spanakopita.
