Good selection of coffee in blends and single origin. I opted for a single origin which complimented the Bonsoy, giving hints of fruit, toffee, nougat, tobacco. Lovely creamy texture.

With years of experience in hospitality under his belt, Brodie Shaw and business partner Ben Evans embarked on an impressive journey to bring about Shawty’s Espresso – a hop, s(k)ip and a jump away from the Park Road train station in Woolloongabba. Read more at

The crazy high rating on Bean Punter seems a little excessive. Their work is good, but not the best in town. These guys do take their coffee seriously, with a selection of beans from several roasters. It's an airy, comfortable space. The staff are faultless - very friendly and unobtrusive. There is a small menu - I didn't try the food. *Review based on one visit

Coffee was fantastic. I finised up having 3- fw, sb and piccolo to finish. Barista was very polite and knowledgeable and overall we enjoyed our stay. Parking is an issue and the food didn't show value. $12 for a bagel when my local does them for $8.90 put me off a little. Seating on a small deck or cooler indoor options too. Clean cut, great coffee, this place deserves their compliments.

I ordered the single origin espresso and pourover coffee and was lucky enough to have the opportunity to taste test some others and everything was uncommonly delicious. The service was friendly and knowledgeable and the staff even took the time to have technical chats with this interested hobbyist. It seems like they put as much care into sourcing the food as well as the coffee - I had the brekky roll and it was so tasty I think there's a bit more to the story than the modest attribution to a special sauce! The location is also really a lovely space and conveniently located - I hope to make this cafe my new regular hangout.

Great to see Felix from Indooroopilly's artisan roasters again. This is a great little gem, it will definitely become one of those coffee shops that Beanhunter lovers will travel to from far and wide. I had a 1+1 pic on a Kenyan single from clandastino roasters. Espresso was sweet and fruity and piccolo was lovely.
