ben1974 reviewed Abode Cafe
Fantastic coffee! Terrible service. Waited over half an hour for one slice of avo on toast. Got sick of waiting and told the staff not to worry about it anymore. Got a shrug of the shoulders. No "I'm so sorry sir" or anything approaching it. Not good enough. There are too many great places in Brisbane to waste my time here again.

The staff are lovely, the space is relaxing and sufficiently distracting for kids and the food was pretty good. The coffee is fine; neither offensive or accolade worthy. Overall a good place to spend some time but don't expect a gold medal coffee experience
This is more a "hot girl in the burbs" scenario... The coffee is ok and the food is marginally better but somehow manages to feel a bit mean. I've had breakfast there a number of times and the servings just seem rather small. Having said all that, it is just down the road from my house, and walkability definitely counts for me. The service is good and the atmosphere is outstanding. These guys are still finding their feet and I'll keep going because I want to believe that an industrial estate in Salisbury can sustain a good coffee shop.
ben1974 reviewed Gas Espresso
My tendency to rate higher for good coffee when it is in a non-coffee-tosser area (ie not West End) was in full force when I stepped inside this lovely cafe. However, I can safely say that Gas could easily compete with most inner city cafes. Having just moved to Moorooka and found the area (and myself) in dire need of high quality coffee, I was surprised to find Gas in nearby Sherwood. The coffee was really good. Pretty much how I like it. Strong, but not overpowering. The cleanskin beans are also a good choice. Pretty smooth and left me wanting more. My only complaint? The chairs and tables are bit small and pokey. And I agree with a previous reviewer that the place could do with a simple reorganisation to allow more customers.
