“Cafe Six” by Kate O’Neil



Try our new

Infestation Menu


It’s the food of the future

so we have created

some fine dining dishes

to keep you updated.


Are you itching to try

mosquito mousse?


or fleas flambé?


Perhaps you’d like

a light stir-fry

of tender glow-worms.


Crusty crickets

would add some crunch

to vary the texture,

served as a side.

(By Jiminy, that’s what

I’d have for lunch.)


Try truffled termites

with pesto sauce

on maggot mash.


Or fruit-fly fritters

with grasshopper gravy


or cicada croquettes

and hairy-bug hash.


Caterpillar curry’s

a dish to-die-for –

a robust feed.

rich and nutritious

(fabulous grub).


If a smaller snack

is all you need

you might like a serve

of buttered fly.


Or a coddled moth.


Perhaps you’d like

cicada soup.


Or a medley of mealworms

cooked in broth

then lightly charred.


Silverfish soufflés

(in moulds and baked twice)

for special occasions


​​​​are a gourmet delight

you’ll remember forever

(expensive but nice).


And when you’ve had your fill of these –

a platter of crackers and assorted bees.
