Oh Hey, Hey Junior Espresso
I'm going to say it, I'm a coffee snob. A big coffee snob. And it does take something special to wow me! But hey, Hey Junior Espresso definitely did. A new addition to the booming café culture on Brisbane's Northside, tucked away in a surprising area on Melton Road, Northgate, Hey Junior opened its doors by Sarah & partner Steven at the end of May this year. A sweet little welcoming café with seating inside and out. You can park right out front, however street parking all around allows easy access to stop by to grab a coffee and treat (even if it is for later) on the way to work. It's even close by to Northgate train station for those morning commuters. If you have time, or prefer a chilled Saturday morning, stay a while and pull up a seat and watch the morning coffee rituals of lovely locals.
Hey Junior use a delicious coffee bean blend from local Brisbane roasters, Baxter & Sons. They use Maleny Dairies Milk and also stock Bonsoy, Almond Milk & Lactose free milk for all of your intolerance needs. A wide selection of teas and juice are also available.
Feeling peckish? The menu has something sure to please with all items currently under $10 (keep your eye out for the prosciutto with fig jam, blue cheese & leaf on sourdough or the avo with whipped feta). Honest menu offerings, with the items made fresh for you. Each day you will find a new selection of sweet treats to tempt you on the counter which are all made in-house! To welcome in Spring, Hey Junior is launching an exciting new weekend menu! Stay tuned for these delicious morsels (I spy a little haloumi, avocado, housemade pesto & chutney bagel…to tempt your tastebuds). The usual menu will continue during the week!
So the next time you find yourself wanting a well-made coffee, treat yourself and make Hey Junior your next go to. You'll find Sarah behind the coffee machine eagerly awaiting your order. Sarah, Steven and team will be there to warm your morning with a smile on even the chilliest of mornings!
