Little Loco on Merthyr Road is a trendy cafe that blends healthy meals with hearty portion sizes. Owned and operated by professional footballer, Brisbane Roar’s Daniel Bowles, the cafe aims to mix things up in the Brisbane cafe scene and take risks that keep patrons interested. The fit-out is fresh and light, with clean lines and comfortable furniture. The menu includes items such as lemon ricotta hotcakes topped with cinnamon honey mascarpone, maple and seasonal fruit, as well as avocado on house-made cornbread with pistachio dukkah, lime and coriander and tacos and quinoa salad at lunch. Little Loco pours coffee from Fonzie Abbott Espresso and also stocks a range of smoothies that are dairy and refined sugar-free, such as peanut butter banana and salted caramel.
