Dot Dash Cafe

Fortitude Valley

Dot Dash Cafe is a hidden gem in the heart of Fortitude Valley serving locally-roasted Bear Bones espresso and top-notch fare for breakfast and lunch. 

Tucked away on Hynes Street, one block from bustling Wickham Street, this charming cafe with minimalist Nordic-inspired decor, offers a relaxed laneway vibe.
