Do homemade ice-cream and frothy milkshakes tickle your fancy? Then head to Indooroopilly for a sweet treat.

Are you ready to step back in time?

The ’40s have arrived in Brisbane, bringing with them a slew of funky retro treats and sweets.

The newly opened NKB Express was inspired by the quintessential 1940s diner and brings a fun, retro-chic, express option to Brisbane’s west side.

Situated conveniently next to the Indooroopilly Train Station, NKB Express offers up breakfast bagels, gourmet burgers, a range of coffees and frosty milkshakes. In keeping with the throwback theme, tbagel-for-webhe eatery features cosy booth seating.

As a little sister to Nantucket Kitchen & Bar, the team at NKB use a traditional charcoal oven to put a delicious twist on menu items. Diners can expect the same high quality food, delivered in an express time frame.

Owners TJ and Kim Peabody aspired to provide locals and nearby workers with fast takeaway and casual dining in a nod to the milkbars of the 1940s. NKB Express was inspired by Kim’s trip to New York City, and the colours and history that caught her imagination.

When creating the venue’s branding and collateral, they used the subdued creams of sepia photographs, the Statue of Liberty’s proud olive green and the iconic image of the post-war kiss.

Supporting the local community is a focal point of NKB Express and they source their products fresh from the markets on a regular basis. At NKB Express, you can expect to enjoy grass fed beef, organic chicken, and house made condiments. They even make their own ice cream from scratch!
