Lisboa Caffe – Opening Soon
If you’ve ever savoured the ecstasy-inducing flavours of a Portuguese custard tart from Lisboa Caffe, this bit of news will surely titillate your pleasure centres. Six years on from its incubator origins at Wandering Cooks, the Lisboa Caffe team is finally opening a bricks-and-mortar cafe and bakery in South Brisbane. Situated on Hope Street in the former Only. Specialty Coffee site (next door to El Planta), Lisboa Caffe boasts a bakery space and shopfront, with a window allowing customers a glimpse at the tart-making process up close. While an off-site kitchen continues to handle Lisboa Caffe’s wholesale baking and distribution, the South Brisbane site will be dedicated to crafting small batches of sweet and savoury goodies to order – with treats moulded, baked and dispensed into our hot little hands in short order. In addition to the traditional custard tart, locals can expect a new range of breads and barista-brewed coffee, while the cafe will also offer a rotating selection of new flavours that will cycle every couple of weeks. Lisboa Caffe is targeting a late-August opening.
