Brisbane's Most Banging Coffee Joint
Putting the funk in funky and the class in classic is She Bangs Coffee. This devilish delight is one of Brisbane more unique cafes. Responsible for some of Brisbane’s best crema (a.k.a liquid gold), She Bangs gives even the most experienced coffee connoisseurs something to write home about. Smooth and subtle or bold and bite-y, whatever you fancy this little gem has your coffee fix sorted.
And just like that, another month is gone (holy cow). Brisbane, you've put on quite a show for the first half of the year and we have no doubt you'll continue to #wow us over the next 6 months. Forget dry July, mid-year diets and winter hibernation, there are mouth-watering espresso martinis to drink, along with carb-loaded meals waiting to be eaten and inspiring exhibits to wander through!
New menu, who dis?
Out with the old and in with the new (well, sort of). Staying on top of seasonal foodie trends and produce is something most Brisbane eateries take pride in #lucky. Menus are continually being updated and tweaked to suit, not only our wants and needs, but also, what's current, fresh and locally sourced. We've had the privilege of taste-testing a number of new breakfast, lunch, dinner and drink menus over the past few weeks, and we think you should try them too. Be quick though, time fly's when you're having fun and before you know it, it'll be spring and the menus will be different again!
