Nug General Store
At the far end of Fortitude Valley’s Bakery Lane, Nug General Store is a homey cafe and retail space selling everything you need for the ultimate dinner party at home.
On the retail front, you might find serving boards by The Wood People, candles by Black Blaze, stainless steel vases by Urban Eden and more. Wooden shelves throughout are stocked with pantry staples (pasta, rice, oils, locally made passata) and artisan goods including Cuttaway Creek marmalade, Quinby’s chilli honey, Vera non-alcoholic aperitifs, Mount Zero olives, and bread from Danny’s Bread.
To eat, there’s a five-item sandwich menu backed by a rotating selection of salads. While sangas change every couple of weeks, past highlights include lamb with capsicum, prawn and crunchy lettuce; and a vegan tofu number served on fresh ciabatta.
Otherwise, Nug is a neighbourhood hangout for Valley dwellers, or those looking to quickly stop and shop for the perfect home event. Walk through the door (with a ring from its charming doorbell) and simply grab some pantry essentials or homewares, or stick around for a sandwich and Moccamaster-brewed Semipro coffee. It’s up to you.
