Veneziano Coffee Roasters is giving you a mighty good reason to get out the house and explore some of Brisbane's greatest cafes. The West End relaunched in 2022 after hefty renovations, opening up its warehouse and cafe space so that patrons can make the most of getting their caffeine fix in a coffee joint that's also roastery.

Expect to see the behind-the-scenes magic happen while you're drinking your warm beverage of choice, all in a space that can seat 50 inside and 16 outdoors. Veneziano's revamped site is airy, light and bright with white surfaces aplenty, plus glass walls that let you peer from the dining space to the coffee roastery and warehouse. And it's also now home to training studios and a cupping lab — running sessions for both professional baristas and folks keen to make their best coffee at home.

The renovations come more than a decade after Veneziano opened in West End in 2009, with alterations made to the Montague Road spot with its Richmond headquarters in Melbourne and Surry Hills cafe in Sydney in mind. The aim: to ensure that stopping by is about more than just getting a buzz, turning it into an interactive coffee experience.

The food here is classic breakfast dishes with a fresh spin, while coffee-wise, Veneziano's Soar is the house blend. Expect honey, pineapple, cherry and chocolate malt notes in your cuppa — but this will change seasonally. Or amid plenty of other options, there's a rotating range of microlots which are served via filter pour-over, plus a limited-edition selection of nanolots.
