You're crazy to walk past Brew once you know it's there! My favourite coffee shop in Brisbane BY FAR, Brew is hidden down an alleyway in the middle of the CBD. Nestled within the hustle and bustle of the city, Brew provides a chilled out, comfortable environment.

The cafe/bar features local artwork on their walls, supporting members of the community and showcasing their talent. Each table has its own rustic theme and the grunge/alternative music will open your ears to a whole new line of tunes. The staff are beyond friendly, the coffee is of the highest quality and their food always hits the spot!

You can't beat a standard cappuccino at this place, though their hot chocolates are also to die for. Brew also offer an extensive range of loose leaf tea from Byron Bay - yummo! If you're heading in for brekkie, you can't beat the New Yorker bagel with streaky bacon and a golden hash brown. Popping in for lunch? The coconut chicken burger is unlike anything else I've found in Brisbane.

Do yourself a favour, scope out this local gem and support a small business. You'll be treated like a regular upon your first visit - and it certainly won't be your last.
