Cosy coffee haunt Bell Bros Coffee House opens in Fortitude Valley
Warm light and the aroma of coffee emanate from the ground level of the Bell Bros building, heralding the arrival of a new coffee nook that embodies a comfy vintage aesthetic paired with delicious java.
Damien Quick is an enterprising go-getter that turned a burning passion for good coffee into a thriving roasting career. As the brain behind Mt Glorious Coffee Co, Damien has spent years building up his roasting repertoire, expanding from market vendor to wholesale dealer and now to a new hospitality venture, Bell Bros Coffee House. The space is located in one of the front tenancies inside the iconic Bell Bros Building, which looks out to Brunswick Street through a set of large glass windows. After being told about the available location, Damien jumped at the chance to have a crack at a cafe of his own devising, quickly overhauling the space with a new coat of paint, wooden floors and a good amount of vintage furniture (think leather couches, antique lamps and flower arrangements), which lends the cafe a cosy 1920s up-market style that reflects the building’s history.
Bell Bros Coffee House is starting things off with coffee and tea, before a food offering is introduced in the coming weeks. Damien’s own Mt Glorious Coffee Co is on the pour, with three blends to try. A light and sweet blend is available alongside a medium roast and Damien’s special wood-roasted blend, which comes highly recommended for those that are seeking an extra-special jolt in their java! Bell Bros Coffee House will also be serving a large range of teas ranging from English Breakfast to oolong to Taiwanese green tea as well as some high-end aged pu-erh tea from China (served with vintage silverware and bone China sets). The food offering will encompass a range of dessert options, which will be available into the evening, as well as BLT sandwiches, pies and breakfast classics.
