Shopping up a storm can be exhausting, which is why any shopping centre needs a top-flight coffee spot where folks can recharge. Espresso Max fills this crucial role at Toombul Shopping Centre, occupying a chic modern-industrial space at the UPSTAIRS foodie hub. Kick back with a vanilla-fudge latte or a simple flat white and watch the world go by, or swing through for a traditional iced mocha to go and get back to the shops – the choice is yours. If you do want to slow things down, cast your eye over Espresso Max’s menu, which is loaded with bites for breakfast and lunch. Pop in early for a supreme bacon-and-egg sub, buttermilk pancakes or cheesy pan omelette, or saunter in at lunch time for some beef nachos, Thai beef salad (served in a tortilla cup), premium steaks, open grill paninis, burgers or lemon-pepper calamari. With an offering this good, you’ll forget your sore shopping feet in an instant.
