Sleep has no chance this Saturday when Bakery Lane erupts into a wall-to-wall orgy of caffeine worship with the first ever Craft Coffee Festival. Expect some of Brisbane’s finest purveyors and roasters to congregate in Bakery Lane to flaunt their skills and spruik their drum-roasted wares with coffee-inspired treats and eats from laneway neighbours and residents.
Literally everyone is getting involved for love of the bean. Local cafes Reverends and The New Black are going to be right in their element, grinding down beans and serving up coffee-inspired fare for festival goers. Le Petit Paris Bakery will be on the hobs, whipping up some coffee crêpes especially for the festival, and Cakes and Shit have taken it upon themselves to hurl bulk quantities of coffee-laced sass and cupcakes into the mix. Johnny’s Pizzeria and Nomnom Korean will also be spruiking their savoury sustenance, which will come in handy after a few of the Bowery’s espresso martinis. There’ll also be some live entertainment with local bands The Fergies and Pink Matter charging up the amp and pumping live tunes from 11am until late.
Entry is free so all you need to do is turn up ready and willing to caffeinate. Kids, dogs, and keep cups welcome.
