Furious 5 – Larder 2


There may be nary a newsagent, supermarket or chemist anywhere in Newstead but if your prepared to give up those practical affectations, there’s a whole plantation of coffee sellers in the area.  As a boost to my fitness, my enthusiasm for a decent coffee, secret fandom of Grandmaster Flash and a test of my blogging commitment, I am hoping to post 5 coffee shops in 5 days.

* Walkable from 639 Wickham St, Newstead/Fortitude Valley
* There and back in 30 minutes

Day 1 – Larder 2

1368 steps return
28 minutes return including travel, ordering and drinking

On Approach:
You could easily walk past this place as entry is at the very apex of a triangular shaped building.  Look out for the stools and umbrellas on one side of the shop.

Inside Vibe:
A serviceable shop with simple laminate countertops, a serve yourself drinks fridge and display cabinet with food.  Airbrushed decoration and Anime style figures feature on the walls as well as a couple of chalkboards letting you know what’s on offer.  Chilled water from the Brita filter, local street press to peruse and half a dozen or so seats.  Opens directly onto Fusion Cycles.
Di Bella – medium bodied, slightly burned taste.  Coffee was medium hot, at a ready to drink temperature.  Medium coffee – $4.

Usual assortment of sweet and savoury muffins, wraps and panninis as well as breakfast options.

Friendly, relaxed counter service – lots of ‘dude’ and ‘mate’ greetings.  Slackers made good.

Point of Difference:
Adjoins a bike shop (of course it does!) so you can get your Dragster serviced whilst having your Tiffin.  Is the sister of Little Larder in New Farm.
