Colin’s Specialty Coffee

Colin’s Specialty Coffee, the cosy sibling of Paddington Social, is a Fortitude Valley pit stop that lures in locals with its super-sized sandwiches, silky caffeine and fresh salads. The brainchild of Gibb Mookachonpan, Tyler Sargent and Lek Senee, Colin’s Specialty Coffee can be found in a sun-dappled corner space at the 1000 Ann precinct. Inside, guests will find a spacious cabinet filled with ready-made sandwiches, salads, pastries and sweet treats, while a coffee machine pumps out brews made using Zest Coffee from Melbourne. Colin’s selection of made-to-order hot sandwiches will undoubtedly by the drawcard for many – highlights include the sauteed mushroom melt with garlic, truffle and Swiss cheese, chicken sandwich with panko-crumbed thigh, herbed mayo, cheese and lettuce, and the house-made smoked-brisket sandwich with mustard relish, sauerkraut, pickle, cheese and special sauce. Fans of Paddington Social’s sensational brunch will be thrilled to know that Colin’s Specialty Coffee is serving a short list of its greatest hits, including the spiced sweetcorn fritters with coriander yoghurt and the chorizo Scotch egg with crushed avocado and hollandaise sauce.
