Partnered with Supreme Coffee Roasters, you can also stop in for an immaculate brewed cup of goodness on your way to work, or before a day spent wandering around the city's fringe.

Inside, you’ll find leafy green decor and warm natural hues.

Kevin’s food is as fresh as its facelift, with a garden-to-plate philosophy that sees vibrant produce and tasteful touches to each dish. Kevin is becoming the best new cafe in Brisbane to visit for weekend brunch, so be sure to pop by and see what all the fuss is about.

The juice shop of your dreams has opened up in California Lane! In August this year, Pressi owner Tessa took her love affair with cold-pressed juice from her home, into the heart of Fortitude Valley.

What began as a fun project making juice for her friends, has become a full-scale juice dealing operation, offering local office workers and weekend warriors a fresh, fruity way to start their day. Making juices fresh in-house along with tasty tiger rolls and toasties, this cosy nook of a café is the perfect place to stop in and soak up some sunshine and nutrients on your lunch break.

James and Antler

James and Antler

James and Antler’s new kiosk is James Street’s hottest new addition, dishing up their top-performing menu items in a casual grab-and-go format that makes getting a delicious brunch even easier. What is this best-selling brunch masterpiece, we hear you ask?

This new venue’s claim to fame is a staple from their flagship cafe Mitch and Antler: the Croque Madame. It's a sourdough toastie layered with smoked ham, two types of cheese and mustard leek cream, topped with the sunniest free-range fried egg you’ve ever seen. We’re also very taken with their canned coffee frappés, which are whipped and canned on the spot for your convenience!

Single O

Single O

A long-time favourite of Sydney-siders has landed in the river city! One of the best new cafes to open in Brisbane this year is Single O, a group of coffee connoisseurs whose passion for sourcing, sampling, cupping, roasting, measuring (and the list goes on) resulted in a handful of wildly popular cafes in Sydney and Tokyo.

Now the eco-conscious caffeine addicts have spread their beans to Brisbane and we’re oh-so-happy they’re here! They’ve brought their iconic batch brew taps, banana bread with espresso butter and their chicken toastie. Head towards the building with the grinder swirl mural across its facade for an incredible coffee and a delicious breakfast.
