Jamie’s Espresso Bar

Jamie’s Espresso Bar is a fixture of Fortitude Valley’s coffee scene. Having supplied locals with killer caffeine since 1998, Jamie Bellas has cemented his espresso bar into a local institution, maintaining its rep even when it relocated to a small pop-up site near At Sixes & Sevens in 2019. Jamie’s Espresso Bar moved again in 2022, reopening in a new space around the corner on Robertson Street. The move is a return to its roots for the espresso spot, which is reminiscent of its original location. Architectural and interior-design firm Twohill & James worked with Jamie on the cafe’s fit-out and aesthetic, which boasts an L-shaped coffee bar, as well as banquettes and window seating. During the day, Jamie’s 3.0 operates very much like the original shop – slinging cups of brew made on Seven Miles Coffee Roasters beans while also turning out a simple breakfast and lunch menu. In addition to its lauded coffee service, Jamie’s opens as a low-key neighbourhood watering hole on Friday nights, serving a selection of boozy beverages as well as a small selection of bar snacks.
