The minute I walked into Stomp Espresso, I knew it was going to be a pleasant experience. There's something warm and welcoming about this cafe, located at 109 Holland Road in Holland Park. It's easy to see why Stomp, who celebrated their first year anniversary in February, has become so popular with the locals.
The staff is super friendly and the decor is delightful, with splashes of lemon sprinkled throughout. Their attention to detail is divine; from fresh flowers and glossy magazines, children's toys and takeaway window, to the vast and varied menu.
Open for breakfast and lunch, the display cabinet is chock-full of goodies: gourmet sandwiches, croissants, quiches, and sweet treats. Sweet treats include carrot cake, coconut macaroons, and cute Cookie Monster cupcakes. Breakfast options range from fresh fruit salad and toasted muesli to bacon, egg, and cheese rolls. Kids are catered for too with jars of children's favourites lining the counter: Hundreds & Thousands, Tic Tocs, and Teddy Bear biscuits. Highchairs are also available.
You can choose to sit inside at one of the small tables or at the large, recycled, timber table (great for groups); or outside in their new outdoor seating area - perfect on sunny days for sitting in the morning sun, enjoying a perfectly presented cup of coffee while perusing the paper.
Papa Rottis at Acacia Ridge, near the Woolies, do a nice coffee. It’s the only decent coffee I know of in the suburb. The place is small but clean and new, service always friendly. Nice hot chocolate too
