    A refreshingly different fit out and a life changing syphon. I arrived with a high level of excitement after reading an article about the owner, Peter Wolff and his history in the Brisbane coffee scene; and tried to act casual as he greeted us from the coffee cart outside the quaint shop front...

    I can't fault the coffee here. Great temperature, flavour, technique and delivery. Well balanced, great presentation showing quality barista skills, robust flavour but not bitter. I understand what others are saying though. The place can be quite noisy as it is fairly small. Service is... Read more

    Such a lovely shop, delightful staff that are very helpful who actually feel like they love their job and want you to have a great coffee! We ordered takeaways and 1kg of coffee. I'm from adelaide and I wish that we could have something like this back home.

    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

    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.

    I can see what all the fuss is about. Makes trips to the airport much more appealing!

    Great coffee here, I love how they give you a little card with a story about the bean you're about to drink. Have some amazing food options also. Cute and quirky :-)

    The driftwood blend is lovely and the decor is cute but the service was not enthusiastic, overly friendly or warm. The baristas weren't very interactive or forthcoming with recommendations... The two times I've been here have been yummy but underwhelming overall. A shame!
