Tazza Coffee (Formerly known as Cup Coffee) is located in the chilled surrounds of semi-suburban Russell Street in West End, and has been serving its own specialty coffee, hearty breakfasts and delicious sounding lunches since its opening in 2009.
Having heard great things about this place, I had to go to see what all the fuss was about, and boy was I impressed! The coffee and food are of top-notch quality, the staff are incredibly friendly and the atmosphere is just so relaxing. It is all these factors that make Tazza a real gem in West End.
Despite the recent change of ownership, Tazza's new owner is continuing to pour cup's outstanding blends (5 star day house blend, single origins and filter) in both espresso and pourover filter forms, carrying on from where the previous holder left off.
Using all fresh ingredients and free-range produce, the breakfast menu is quite unique and lists many appealing options to try from. I had the new Pumpkin Bruschetta, which consisted of orange and caramelised pumpkin, red onions, feta, pesto & rocket with poached eggs served on sourdough bread. The combination of sweet and salty was just perfect.
For a more sweet taste, there is the incredible buttermilk pancakes with caramelised bananas, salted caramel, hazelnut mascarpone and fresh strawberries.
Another popular choice, customers are all raving about is the thyme infused mushrooms with Danish fetta, smoked salmon, asparagus, rocked and poached eggs on toasted sourdough with saffron hollandaise. A definite must try for me next time I visit!
The lunch menu starts from 11am, and also offers some great options, from a mouth-watering Moroccan chicken salad to a number of delicious sounding bagels, including a smoked salmon rye bagel with cream cheese, dill, red onion, cucumber, capers and rocket.
The price is quite reasonable and ranges from $5 - $20
Tazza has definitely made a name for itself in West End and is becoming a favourite in Brisbane's already prominent coffee hub. So if you are in the area and love great coffee and yummy food, I would thoroughly recommend a pit stop at Tazza!
