#12 in Brisbane Top Cafe 2016

Our cafe is a quality focussed business using Mecca Coffee as our house blend and sourcing from other quality Australian roasters for our feature coffee and filter coffee. We source our ingredients from other like-minded businesses such as Maleny Dairies for milk, Heirloom for all things chocolate and our sister cafe Bunker for Iced drinks. We have a daily selection of fresh baked pastries and cakes and the cafe is located in the heritage listed John Mills Himself building. We can be a little hard to find: you can reach us via the driveway at 55 Elizabeth St, or walk through to the back of the buildings basement level from 40 Charlotte St.


55 Elizabeth Street (Bottom of Driveway), Brisbane CBD, Queensland

Guatemalan for both espresso and batch. Espresso was good but not as great as the last couple of days - had some sweetness but didn’t finish as cleanly as ideal. Batch was also not quite there - initially sweet but a bittering at the end

Guatemalan espresso was great with a balanced Maillard reaction base note and sweetness dancing around up top. The reflectometer test (dissolved solids) for the batch was cool. Same beans for batch as the espresso, unusually for a batch the Five Senses had some delectable rounded roasti’ness, was backed up by spot on acidic/sweetness. Top coffee location.

I think I just enjoyed the best Flat White I’ve ever had. I love the space and the great service. Don’t miss the chance to have a coffee nirvana experience, I know I just did!

Look for the poorly signed entrance for the koala savers. Walk past the offices of self-important mung eaters. Continue down the hallway. When think you’re lost, take a right and you’ll enter a bunker. Silk.
