These days, the inner city suburb is also known for its brews of the caffeinated variety, with everything from your long macchiato, cold drip brew, boutique roasted beans or even DIY mixology available within walking distance of Gabba Central Apartments. Don’t worry, flat whites and cappuccinos are definitely still in vogue too!
Beartown Coffee House is a firm favourite with the Gabba Central Apartment team, and not just because it’s only 100 metres from reception! Using a locally roasted Bear Bones Specialty blend, a ‘smooth and flavoursome combination’ from Colombia and Brazil, the tasting notes for caffeine afficionados are ‘nuts, sticky fruit and chocolate’. They also have a rotational single origin on offer every week which can be used in any of their espresso based drinks. Translation? It’s fantastic coffee served with unpretentious café food that will set you up for a great day or put you right after a raucous night.
Then there’s Black Sheep, a small, boutique roasting house put together by some of Brisbane’s finest young caffeinated minds. Slightly further away for those desperate for an early morning brew, (7 minute drive or a blow-the-cobwebs-out 1.5km walk) but well worth the effort for their ethically and sustainably sourced coffee and tea from estates all around the world. Here, you’ll smell the beans roasting before you find the café and shop front. Serving every kind of brew imaginable and a host of baked goods, Black Sheep also sell their roasted coffee in takeaway bags for in-home use.
Still on the animal theme, Brown Dog Café is a 500m walk from Gabba Central Apartments, and with a strong kid friendly vibe a visit to this Brisbane coffee institution is the perfect way to start the day. With a yummy selection of breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes as well as a wide range of non-caffeinated drinks, this is a great family choice for a nourishing meal.
