Sometimes, only your favourite coffee order will do. At other times, your caffeine-loving tastebuds crave the taste of something new. Toby's Estate's Brisbane flagship, which has opened in Newstead, can cater for both instances. And if you're keen to try a heap of different types of coffee, it'll serve up more than 84 different kinds each year.

Sleek digs, a hefty array of specialty brews, a full kitchen: they're all part of Toby's Estate's new River City setup as well. The brand has made its home on Longland Street, adding its Brissie base to a global footprint that includes similar sites in Chippendale, where its Sydney roastery is located, as well as Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and the Middle East.

You won't miss the curved coffee bar when you walk in — which is by design by Melbourne architects Russell & George. Sitting in the middle of the room, the round centrepiece includes an espresso bar, filter bar and training bar. While perched at it, you also won't miss the chance to witness the coffee-making process and hear from the baristas pouring your brew.

Otherwise, in a venue that uses sustainable vinyl and raw ply heavily — and aims for a look that mixes 70s-style retro with modern touches — tables and chairs are scattered around the place for you to settle in and sip cuppas at.

Caffeine fiends can choose from a wide range of choices on the coffee menu, including the limited-edition Flavour Savour blends and the single-origin picks that'll offer new picks monthly. Food-wise, cooked meals and sweet treats are available.
