Little Genovese

Hot coffee straight from the source.

If you've had more than a couple of cups of coffee from Brisbane cafes in your lifetime, then you've had a cup of Genovese. The enticing aroma of their Super Brazil blend has probably lured you in the door of your local, and you might've even bought their take-home packs too. Now, you can head straight to the source at Coorparoo's Little Genovese. Yes, the Italian-style roasters have opened their own espresso bar.

There's no prizes for guessing what's on the menu here, and if the hints of caramel, chocolate and nuts in their main brew aren't to your liking, you'll also find a rotating array of seasonal blends too. Cakes, pastries and other snacks from local bakeries also feature, as do a smattering of the usual breakfast and lunch options. Yes, they serve avo on toast and a variety of eggs; however if you can manage to pass up the five-cheese toastie, then you have killer willpower.

And if all that hasn't given you enough reasons to stop by, then checking out their warehouse digs should. When it comes to cool spaces for coffee places, Little Genovese is up there with the best of them, complete with artwork by Fintan Magee on their walls.
