Swift Espresso

Paddington

Swift Espresso is a charming light-filled café that occupies an old corner store tucked away in the back streets of Paddington.

Patrons can nab a sunny window seat or a stool in the side courtyard and relax with a top-notch coffee or tea and some home-baked treats or delicious light breakfast or lunches.

On the concise all-day menu are pastries (chocolate or ham and cheese croissants and danishes) from Le Sebastien bakery, premise-baked sweet or savoury muffins (think apple crumble or blueberry), as well as a healthy, home-made muesli, fruit and yoghurt bowl, banana bread and thick-cut fruit toast.

Swift serves outstanding full-bodied coffee from local Brisbane Q Roasters, along with a range of premium earth loose-leaf teas (also from Q Roasters), and fragrant Prana Chai masala, as well as one of Brisbane's best ever (pink) babycinos that adults will love, too - steamed milk with pomegranate syrup, topped with hundreds and thousands.
