I recently ventured to Chocolate Soldier (the one located near the entrance to the Telstra building) at the invitation of a work colleague. It’s one of four cafés belonging to the Cicada Group who occupy much of the ground level space around this building. The café has a nice feel to it. ... Read more
I can see how and why this cafe is popular however I wasn't actually that impressed with the coffee. The milk was poorly textured and the coffee was only warm. Given the setup and equipment (2 x LM's, Mazzer's etc), I was expecting much more from this cafe.
This is a great cafe in the Telstra building on George Street. Very efficient, they know their regulars and provide consistent coffee. They run two chocolate coloured LM's matched with Mazzer's. The bean is Campos, and they pull great shots. It is also pretty comfortable, with some nice leather... Read more
A nice looking modern executive type cafe on George St opp the courts.
They use Allpress coffee which is a little weak for my liking but the crowds there must like it.
There is also a big selection of fine chocolates in case you are feeling slightly decadent.
This cafe is very well situated in CBD Brisbane in George St. The seating allows people to have some time to chat but not for long. The chocolates are a wonderful addition to some beautiful coffee. The staff are friendly and provide a high quality service.
I usually like Allpress Espresso. Unfortunately this place is so busy there isn't a lot of love in the cup. A reliably fair coffee.

The shop is well designed and looks appealing. However, not suitable if you were to hold a private conversation. The coffee was good, but not consistent. I have tasted burnt coffee on some occassions.
Wow this place is cool. Great retro feel with Johnny Cash playing in the background. Service was spot on and my long black pretty good. A little weak for my liking so not sure if two shots are called for.
Popped in here today to try and escape the rain. Service was good, coffee not so good. The bitterness of the first sip didn't leave me wanting to continue, but I had time to kill so kept persevering.
Friendly staff, good selection of food, chocolates(try the salty chocolate ball things). The coffee is good not great.
CS is my daily coffee, all the staff know me by name and are very friendly. The coffee is good, with a strong bitter taste. The barista machine outputs a very hot espresso and at times walks a fine line between burnt, but when it is done right, it is a fantastic drink. The staff are very helpful... Read more
Passing through Brisbane we thought we'd give this one a shot. A decent, though not great, coffee - I agree with another reviewer that it's a little weak for my taste. A strong selection of sweets, including gluten- and wheat-free options. A nice relaxed vibe/environment to sit and enjoy, though a... Read more
Good coffee. Bad service.
fast professional service, coffee was very good. What a set up! probably the best lobby espresso bat in brisbane
Nice smooth coffee with energetic service. It is a great way to start the day (especially with one of their delicious brownies!!).

Great coffee, Chocolate Soldier is my weapon of choice for starting the day without fail. Fast service, and they know what I like, plus good fun team. Not the best atmosphere being in a lobby, though take your coffee to couches if you want to sit and enjoy it.
Was in Brisbane for work and this place was near my hotel. First coffee in Brisbane and it was terrible. So burnt and so hot I could barely hold the cup. I'm no coffee expert, but I'm pretty sure that's not how it's meant to be. Will try somewhere else tomorrow!
While the coffee here can be pretty good, I've found it to be much too inconsistent to be worth the trip. You never know what you're going to get with the coffee, which is a shame as the high end machine (La Marzocco) is capable of making a fantastic coffee. The service is generally pretty good,...

Friendly staff .. great coffee. Pretty cool atmosphere for a lobby cafe.
Great Coffee, great staff. They know their regulars and make them feel special.
Excellent service, my coffee is usually made before I pay for it.
The guys and gals have a great sense of humour and make you feel welcome.
Chocolates and cakes are absolutely wonderful.
