Only. Specialty Coffee Fortitude Valley
In the first half of 2020, the Only. Specialty Coffee crew closed up its Queen Street and Woolloongabba locations to direct its attention towards a new HQ in Fortitude Valley. Desiring to create a beautiful space where coffee could be enjoyed without the go-go atmosphere of its quick-service locations, the team secured a space within the TC Beirne Building off Brunswick Street, enlisting Woodsters Constructions to design a space that better suited a relaxed dine-in experience. Although the approach is different coffee is still key at Only., and those seeking a flat white will be catered for alongside the batch-brew or pour-over crowd. The fit-out includes a high bar equipped with a few Marco SP9 filter-coffee brewing systems, which is where a rotating selection of single origins from various roasters will be showcased (Five Senses is available for espresso coffee). Only.’s food menu is concise, but boasts a number of tasty favourites made from quality locally sourced ingredients, including the breakfast burger, toasted croissants filled with local mortadella, cheese and chutney, avocado on rye with bush native dukkah and probiotic goat-milk labneh, and handmade crumpets with Pepe Saya butter. Additionally, Only. stocks HRVST ST. juices, organic tea from Love Tea and four kinds of shakes.
