As you can probably tell, we take our caffeine very seriously.
Like the rest of the human population, there are few things we hate more than cold coffee and long lines, and for this very reason we’ve teamed up with Hey You and Visa Checkout to hunt down the very best coffee in Sydney where you can beat the queue by ordering ahead on the Hey You App and get your daily dose without the wait.
And now, after a month of intense coffee love and admirable cafe loyalty, the search is officially over. We’ve counted every single one of your votes (there were thousands) and we are beyond thrilled to crown—drumroll, please—Lola Coffee as the coffee king (or is it Queen?) of Brisbane!
The cosy Woolloongabba café has taken over the local caffeine scene of late, brewing beans by Coffee Alchemy and brewing them very well indeed. They do a killer cold brew for those moments it’s just too humid to do a hot beverage, as well as an oh-so refreshing espresso tonic with bubbles.
Stop by on your way to work without a worry about the wait thanks to Hey You (if you haven’t downloaded the app already, get with the times and do it now) or get out of the office and move your Monday morning meeting here to partake of the kickin’ breakfast fare.
Order the kombucha-soaked bircher if you’re sticking around for breakfast, or the wholesome Buddha bowl for lunch, then make your way through the rotating menu of homemade sweet treats (think caramel slice, carrot cake and decadent chocolate brownies) that taste better than your grandma’s.
Find Lola Coffee and the best coffee in Brisbane (without the queue) at Shop 6, 855 Stanley Street, Woolloongabba.
