Ma Belle Amie

Enter the coffee and cake for two giveaway
is a funky little French inspired cafe and gift shop situated in the trendy suburb of Albion on the north side of Brisbane. With no coffee shop in the local area, Clarissa, who owns and works as a Lawyer in the practice next door, was inspired to open Ma Belle Amie, to offer good coffee and a place for friends to meet.

Choosing quirky elements to place cleverly throughout the cafĂ©, from the wall mounted tea pots to the bright sunny umbrella’s ordaining the outdoor settings, Clarissa has achieved something quite special and unique.

My favourite element of Ma Belle Amie is the bright and happy wall covering.  To the naked eye you could be deceived in to thinking that is was wallpaper, but no…….. Clarissa happened upon a gorgeous oilcloth fabric by Ben Elke (who she also stocks) and lo and behold it now covers the walls. 
Oil cloth as wallpaper = genius!!

No one likes a bargain more then I. While looking around Ma Belle Amie you will find some great pieces that Clarissa has sourced from local Opportunity shops.
 The large  wooden table pictured above is from lifeline and sits so perfectly alongside the built in window seats.Once used to hold yummy rustic bread loaves, a gorgeous vintage bakers stand sourced from another local lifeline shop now displays some of the lovely gifts at Ma Belle Amie

There are many beautiful gifts adorning the shelves at Ma Belle Amie. Gifts that are perfect for male and female housewarmings, weddings, birthdays, and also something special for yourself, not to mention the ummmmmm..... so yummy coffee and cakes. Quirky Comforts are now for sale at Ma Belle Amie including the new pastel jewelry range as pictured. So when you are planning a coffee and browsing trip next, make sure you add Ma Belle Amie to your list
