Situated around a small Queenslander style cottage, this unique little café is serving up mouth watering food paired with specialty coffee roasted by Single_O. My personal favourite is their silky smooth chia pudding topped with all sorts of goodies.

The cafe scene at North Lakes has become impressive over the years, however BLVD is a splendid stand out. It offers a relaxed and breezy atmosphere, an inventive menu and coffee from independent roaster, Coffee Supreme. Check out their Facebook page for super special weekend deals.

Another giant of the North Lakes Empire, Told You So arguably serves up the best coffee in Brisbane. When you visit this treasure cove of coffee, expect a detailed description of the origin of the bean featured in your favourite beverage. Told You So’s dedication to detail and perfectionism of coffee is a Brisbane marvel.

There is much to love at Dandelion and Driftwood - from their cute and refined setting to their breakfast offerings. And unite all coffee lovers, because D & D have two coffee bars to keep you satisfied; a traditional espresso bar serving up their house blend and a brew bar crafted from their Über cupper boiler.
