    Twas the nearest place to my appointment and I'm glad I dropped in. The building has a movie set style to it. World War 2 bunker meets gospel church. Love the stained glass arch in the middle of the shop. Nice breakfast menu, I tried the smoked salmon bagel with Persian fetta and capers. Yummo.... Read more

    I had a v60 filter of the Kenyan Peaberry they recommended and was pleasantly surprised. Very sweet and tart with a long aftertaste. It would have to be up there with the best filter coffee I've had of late.

    Really like stopping here for breakfast and coffee when I get the chance. Coffee is always good - very consistent. Service is relaxed, yet always relaxed and attentive.

    I have visited Fifth Battery many times and always find the atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxed. I finally managed to have a seat in the courtyard. Even though I could hear some noise from outside, it was tranquil and very calming that made me feel wanting to stay there forever. I always find... Read more

    Love this place! I've been coming here 2 years and for me, it has gotten more consistent.

    My first time back here since these guys opened a year and a half ago. Blown away by the quality of the coffee being served here. These guys have really come into their own. Had an few on the El Salvador that was really buttery and smooth in texture. Then had a few on their houseblend which was... Read more

    We had been to Fifth Battery Coffee Roasters before, and Brother Espresso at Windsor individually and have had some enjoyable coffee experiences, so it was time to converge and have a shared experience. Although they still refer to themselves as ‘new kids on the block’, Fifth Battery has been... Read more

    Here's a tip for young players - if you want to find a quiet cafe in the Valley, go on the last day of Ekka... This was my experience yesterday morning when I decided I would check out Fifth Battery Coffee Roasters, a place I'd heard good things about. I immediately loved the feel of the place,... Read more

    Nice coffee. Great location and fitout.

    It's understandable that one might find the coffee lacking in intensity, however as a black coffee, the balanced flavours nonetheless produce an extremely enjoyable cup.

    Located in an unassuming building that looks like an air raid shelter this is a good find and worth the effort to find it.

    I like to have a coffee when they are roasting a batch of beans it\'s like having coffee in stereo. Great taste and you\'re being enveloped in the aroma.

    Excellent coffee. House blend is superb. Awesome seasonal blends and single origin. The only place i'd go to for advice. Helpful and informative, yet laid back and chilled. Not too quick, not too slow.

    I have regularly visited Fifth Battery since they opened. As a standard the coffee has been excellent and I really enjoyed the flavour of the Fifth Battery Blend. Over the past few weeks the blend has altered with the new season beans, and the result - awesome! The food is always excellent as... Read more

    Dropped in as this place was near an appointment I had in the area - delicious long black, full of flavour and not too hot. Great little drop in place!

    The little brother of 'brother espresso' - but of equal superb quality!!! You guys are good, parking is an issue, but that's the inner city curse. Terrific quality coffee, top service and less pretentious clientele than over at Hawthorne/ Bulimba.

    Had been on my places to try for a long time and am glad I finally did. Ordered 2 flat whites on the seasonal blend and both were made to perfection. Creamy textured milk, nice extraction, finished well. Nice blend of earthy flavours with citrus tones. Gave the food a go with the chicken burger... Read more

    Need another round here. The coffee was good, but not any better than good. My flawhite was a good temp, but had that earthy taste of a double ristretto. I finished my espresso, so it could have been said to be all right Pretty nice shop set up. Too industrial/grunge/warehouse to be a really... Read more

    Great spot for breakfast or lunch in the courtyard out the back. The service is friendly and efficient. Coffee well made but not my favorite bean.

    My wife and her friend visited yesterday and explained with much excitement that I HAD to go and check it out :) I am a sucker for somewhere different, somewhere unique and interesting and I am pleased to say this was worth the drive in peak hour. The building looks like an old hanger/barn with... Read more

    Have yet to be let down by the guys at Fifth Battery. Great coffee, funky atmosphere and good food. Whether you want a nice breakkie with coffee or a takeaway coffee this is the place to go. Had their new seasonal blend and was impressed by the mix of flavours and smoothness. No complaints at all!

    Will need to return as it has a feel and others had a better experience than I did. Like many in the city during business hrs - parking can be a pain if your not a local. Had SB and it was nothing to write home about. But others before me were impressed so I can only add that consistency; is... Read more

    This was my first visit to this venue. First impressions upon entering the premises on a hot Brisbane January day were: oppressive heat; and the structure of the building reminds me of WWII Nissen Huts – prefabricated steel structures made from a half-cylindrical skin of corrugated...

    You gotta check this place out. Reminds me of great cafes in Melbourne - minimalist funky design and people serious about their coffee. Speaking of which it\'s just divine.

    So had a small trek to find this place but once there the atmosphere was great. I thought we'd fallen at the first hurdle as the filter wasn't great but the parting Long Black we amazing. So yeah you're in good shape with the Espresso! Nice spot to hang out but no Wifi!

    Been here once or twice a week for the last couple of months. Coffee is usually good, though I've had a couple of nasty run-ins with long blacks. Food has been good (I keep coming back...), though I've had a couple of 'yesterdays' croissants - but good egg'n'bacon. Great building and surrounds -... Read more
