Laid back little sidestreet hole-in-the-wall with plenty of alleyway seating. Served me a very nice macchiato.
James Street Bistro
Close to the Palace Centro cinemas, this place actually does a good coffee. They use Giancarlo beans and, while a bit heavy on the chocolate dust, the cappucino had a strong foam and a really smooth texture.
Amazing coffee, they roas their own beans on site so it smells incredible while you wait. I had a small takeaway flat white and it was perfect.
Home to the worlds slowest barista! Very busy day, so service was slow. Coffee was nice, not outstanding but not too bad either. Fairly smooth and not bitter.
Merlo - Fortitude Valley
Half a star short of perfect due to cafe laws limiting them to take away cups. The coffee and the onsite roasted beans are top notch.
Tried their cold drip (first time) and it was awesome. On a side note their food is amazing here, the eggs benedict was perfect.
If Espresso Bar
Decent FW, nothing special though.
