Metro Arts Espresso Bar certainly has that coolness factor about it. I’m not sure how long the café has existed, but Metro Arts has been a hub for local artists for many years. The café has a great vibe, and the barista who was there when I visited recently was friendly and chatty. Amazingly, you can enjoy a regular size coffee here for just $2.50 - GST included :) When I ordered my triple ristretto latte and the barista only asked for $2.50 I almost couldn't believe what I heard. I don’t think I've paid this little for a coffee in Brisbane ever? Perhaps this is Metro Arts looking after the needs of struggling coffee-drinking local artists… The coffee on offer is the Di Bella Felici blend. It was certainly full-bodied, but it was really lacking in refinement. There was just too much bitterness for my liking (even with ristretto shots). Still, my coffee had been prepared reasonably well and I walked away feeling like I’d found a relative bargain.
