If you have never been to Banyo, you might not be aware there is a food revolution going on in Brisbane’s eastern suburbs. Royal Parade’s proximity to transport, and the Brisbane airport has probably helped, spurred along by Chef Dominique Rizzo’s world-class offerings at Putia front and centre of it. Wherever you are in Brisbane, the menu is well worth traveling for.

The Menu

Putia’s all-day menu focuses on whole foods, and seasonal local produce treated with love. It is the perfect place to taste the best produce Queensland has to offer. The menu caters to all eating styles – and the kitchen are very approachable when it comes to food intolerances and dietary requirements. There are always gluten-free options to tempt you, as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes. It is also family friendly with a dedicated kid’s menu.

“Putia’s menu reflects our passion for simple, fresh, food: the essence of Pure Food Cooking. Our menu is designed by Dominique Rizzo reflecting the seasons of Queensland and showcasing local, artisan produce that we take pride in plating up for you. Where we can, we embrace our local providores using Wolff Roasters, Norco milk, Olympus Cheese; Australian sustainable seafood; honey, fruits and vegetables and other ingredients only from passionate Australian fellow producers.” Dominique Rizzo.

Dominique’s brunch menu is particularly fond of Olympus Cheese, and we outline the delights you can devour whilst sipping on a perfectly made cup of coffee, house-brewed chai or breakfast smoothie.

olympus halloumi avocado bruschettaBrunch

If you love Olympus halloumi, then you will love it grilled atop the avocado sour dough bruschetta. The addition of pink peppered strawberries, crispy basil, french shallot and chervil with a divine house-made strawberry balsamic take it to next level deliciousness.

Olympus ricotta fans will also be jumping for joy at the Spiced fruit toast with house preserves, Cultur’d butted and vanilla ricotta.

If you’re after something super-healthy for brunch, Putia also does an amazing Asian-inspired Power bowl or Cardamon spiced black rice porridge. Or if you’re bordering on hangry, the Putia Big Breakfast will tame that tiger!


If the gorgeous ambience and amazing food has you lingering long past breakfast, Putia has more substantial meals to take you to lunch. Try the succulent fish of the day – the current menu has lovely creamy flavours perfect for winter. Or choose from an array of daily lunch specials which always keep the menu cutting edge. If you’re sharing, you can also go for a gorgeous Antipasto platter filled with artisan cheeses ?

To sort out your Olympus fix, you can pair any delicious meal with Putia’s amazing Olympus Halloumi fries with lemon. Winning!
