The Stand

California Lane

The Stand is a seriously delicious dessert and cocktail bar found at the entrance of Fortitude Valley’s funky California Lane on McLachlan Street.

This diminutive dessert stand and bar boasts a vibrant pink fit-out with a cute, melted ice-cream table and flamingos with tables spilling out into the laneway.

The drool-worthy menu features classic desserts from Ambrosia and Apple Crumble to Lemon Meringue, Sticky Date Pudding, and Panna Cotta with strawberries.

There are Belgian waffles with chocolate ganache and berries, vanilla bean ice-cream and salted caramel; served along with less saccharine sweets such as acai bowls and yummy vegan slices.

Classic cocktails include espresso martinis, mojitos and manhattans; while signature cocktails to try are Green Fairy (absinth, apple liqueur and cold pressed apple juice), 

Twisted Ruby (raspberry vodka, raspberries, mint, lime and sparkling lemon), and Cali Baby (vodka, passionfruit liqueur, mango liqueur, pineapple juice and soda).

In addition, there’s a short and sweet wine list, as well as beer and cider.
