HOT: Andavanth, 46 Douglas St, Milton

Milton is one of the busiest business and IT hubs in Brisbane, dosage with countless cafes and restaurants for those long 80’s style corporate lunches.  But what if you’re just looking for a quick coffee to kick things along before you settle in for the day?  For me, there the morning caffeine kick HAS to be good – and now that a regular-sized coffee for Brisbane-ites can cost between $3 – $4.50, salve I’m even more determined to source that perfect, creamy cappuccino.

Unsatisfied with the majority of cafes and street vendors up on ‘the strip’, my colleagues and I decided to venture off the beaten track for our caffeine high one sunny morning.  Away from the Euro-wannabe cafes on Park Road, the bottom end of Douglas Street is home to Grecian-inspired café Andavanth.  Not only was my first cappuccino-to-go from Andavanth up to my high standards, but on my first visit Angie and Bill, the owners and full time managers of Andavanth, made the effort to introduce themselves. This was a pleasant surprise, for at the previous venues we were simply another $4 in the till….NEXT PLEASE!

The long line of local business men and women in the morning means one thing only….these guys do good coffee.  Andavanth also caters for those looking for a little more than coffee – they have a breakfast and lunch menu which includes a selection of fresh and light Greek inspired flavours.  The menu is reasonably priced, as is the wine list.  There’s even a cosy area at the back of the premises where you can still hold those 80’s style long lunches and thanks to the design of the local office blocks behind the café, it’s like escaping to your own little piece of Tuscany.

  1. I work on Gardner Close in Milton which is just round the corner from here and didn’t even know this place existed. What a little gem will be checking it out next week. Thanks for the review!
