Event description
Discover Brisbane's forgotten café culture as Dr Toni Risson walks us through her research for her book on Brisbane's Greek cafes.

About this Event

There was a time when Greek cafés were sprinkled across Brisbane like salt on a pile of hot chips. Before smashed avocado and kombucha and acai bowls, even before McDonald’s, there was the Greek café. Only a handful of Greek migrants traded in oyster saloons in Brisbane during the 1890s but by the 1920s a vibrant café society flourished in the hands of more than 70 Greek proprietors. Discover Brisbane's forgotten café culture as Dr Toni Risson walks us through her research for a book, Brisbane's Greek Cafés: A Million Malted Milks.
