Finally got the chance to get in to the City to try out Strauss. It's a very slick little set up, a nice clean modern looking lane too. You just have to love this new turn in using the dead ends and lanes of Brisbane for good coffee establishments. Nothing sweeter than being greeted by the site of that machine too. It gives you hope that your coffee will be as sexy and divine. Service was pleasant and professional. Ambience is slick, inner city and perfect for it's location. Love the ceilings and the exposed bricks. Coffee was expected good, not mind blowing...omg best coffee ever. But skilfully made, good temperature and nice flavours. I sort of hoped it would be a bit more punchy, but it probably suits the mix of city workers as it's customers. Overall it is a great spot for a very good coffee if you are in the City.
