    Still my pick of best all round cafe of Brisbane.

    The coffee was wonderful and the barista was very knowledgable however this place is not children friendly.
    D&D is a coffee boutique and the owners are more concerned about their image instead of their customers. A little bit of customer service goes a long way!

    Nice coffee, very attentive service, one of the better ones I've been to in the inner-north.

    Consistently great coffee. I normally get it to go as it's not a super comfortable spot to sit and relax with your coffee - it's always very busy with not much room to move.

    Coffee was weak and lacking flavour. Service was dreadfully slow (even though the shop had 5 people in it) and the staff couldn't have cared less. Terrible experience.

    a brilliant selection of beans through multiple extraction methods. Staff who are confident in their craft and willing to share their knowledge. an outstanding coffee experience.

    Their coffee is so special it has a story behind it! I've only just found out they give certain blends to certain sex types! Lucky for me driftwood is my favourite blend! This is my go to coffee that puts a smile on my face every time

    Have had a great chance to be here a couple of times in the last two weeks and nothing has changed - the coffee is sensational. Had a series of amazing coffees which just remind me that Dandelion and Driftwood really is the benchmark in Brisbane.

    Was dropping the rental car off and saw Dandelion on the way past. What are the chances!? I've always wanted to check this place out. Pitty I was in a rush and could only get a take away. Regardless it was a superb, very sweet and smooth, strong latte. Wish I had a ristretto as I'm sure it would... Read more

    Coffee passion mixed in with a ladies morning tea venue makes for a lovely cafe. I stopped in for a long black and a bacon & egg toasted bagel. Both were delicious although water was steaming hot so crema quickly disappeared but tasted great. Service was quick and very knowledgeable - the coffee... Read more

    It is a pleasure to come back to D&D after nearly 2 years. The coffee is one of the best I've had in Oz and equal to the best in a Sydney. My driftwood blend was perfectly made and had a great aroma and taste, only slight acidity and sweet aftertaste. With a slice of cheesecake a perfect... Read more

    Flying out on hols decided D &D was perfect stop off for a good coffee before we were at mercy of high priced, average Airport coffee. It has been 9 mths since I did a review and about the 4th visit in between then. Living at New Farm makes it hard to travel for coffee when surrounded by good... Read more

    Such a popular little place! Enjoy coming here to get a takeaway coffee when on the drive home from the airport. Always busy busy busy, and can feel quite crammed in such a small space. Having said that, they have managed to fit ALOT in a small area. Many different brew methods on offer, and all... Read more

    This is a great cafe in Brisbane which is a delight to visit. Peter and Penny and all their staff provide great coffee, particularly to take away, and great insights about various types of coffee, various ways of brewing and drinking coffee. The food has recently increased in variety. Overall a... Read more

    Our family loves this little cafe but it seems like the love affair may be waning. Today three out of three of our coffees were without the blissful caramel stickiness expected of the blend. Too hot coffee milkshakes We want the old DandD back.

    This place never disappoints. My Ethiopian Galena Abaya, as a piccolo was off-taps! Matt nailed the description; fruit smoothie.

    I'm never disappointed by D&D.

    Up here on business last week and enjoyed two beautiful coffees here. Beautifully balance long black with lots of chocolate through it, followed by a rick and full flavored strong latte. Beautiful coffee.

    Tried two different beans on a long macchiato, house blend & single origin. Both ready fruity 'tones'
    Very consistent coffee, well interpreted long mac. These guys REALLY know their coffee.

    I felt like total coffee wannabe compared to these guys. Coffee was really quite good but the food was the upper edge of average.

    What more can I say that has not already been said. As a roaster from Sydney visiting Brisbane for a few days on business I had almost lost faith that anyone in Brisbane had any idea of which end of the portafilter to hold, little much understand what grind on demand means. Just stepping one foot... Read more
