The café supports local business by stocking products from Brisbane suppliers including award-winning Italian gelati from Caffe and Gelato Milany, authentic Greek sweets from a local home cook, French macarons from a nearby patisserie and a range of imported pantry items.
However the most impressive aspect of Briki Espresso and Gelati Bar is the single cooking device that is used to produce every hot and delicious dish in the small kitchenette.
The highlights of the affordable and tasty Briki Espresso and Gelati Bar include the smashed avocado on toasted sourdough with haloumi cheese or salmon and the gluten free muesli that boasts fresh fruit and healthy muesli by a local supplier.
