Meet you at Merthyr?

New Farm’s hub, Merthyr Village, is the go-to for Brisbanites city-wide, and for all the right reasons. Bustling with locally owned boutiques and services, it’s a community within itself and here’s a little taste.

Da Rin Optometrist

Clearly see the latest styles, fashion-forward looks and top-notch service at the Da Rin Optometrist boutique. Choose from some of the leading names and fashionable brands while ensuring your sight is set on 20-20 vision with their specialist eye technology. The Da Rin team source frames from around the world to create a world-class collection. With brands such as Chanel, Chopard, Tiffany & Co and more, you’ll find something unique, and unlikely to be seen anywhere before. Set your eyes on a new perspective of eyewear and have a scroll through their Instagram for some inspo or pop in-store to see it all for yourself.

Dello Mano

Deborah and Bien Peralta have managed to do the impossible: they’ve made brownies even better! The geniuses behind the artisanal bakery Dello Mano have scored major brownie points with their handmade luxury brownies that are intensely chocolatey and heavenly rich. Their ovens have expanded to now offer premium cakes, French-inspired tarts and even more delicious brownie varieties to be enjoyed in their charming cafes or delivered straight to you.

New Farm Deli

When you’re as passionate as Vince and Maria Anello are about New Farm Deli, you can bounce back from anything bigger and better than before, and that’s exactly what the inspirational duo have done. From the ashes of the tragic fire that devastated the New Farm institution in July, the much-loved icon has been reborn and they have opened their doors once again to serve up the delicacies that have been dearly missed in the community.

Brisbane’s oldest bustling Italian delicatessen is known for its cheeses, meats, European treats and take home meals and will welcome back its extended family of loyal customers with pastry, focaccia and Panini filled arms. A family-run business now sharing the traditions and flavours it has collected in the past 40 years with its fourth generation, many more people consider the Deli an integral part of their home and its long-awaited grand re-opening is the Christmas miracle the New Farm community celebrates.

Not only does it operate as a deli with high quality gourmet foods, fresh local produce and speciality fine food from around the world on its shelves, but New Farm Deli is also a café and offers a bespoke catering service. Join the family table for authentic Italian food made with love or let their gourmet platters, antipasto or charcuteries be the centre of your table at your next event. Check out our latest article about their grand reopening.
