Alen's Espresso is an industrial style coffee nook with hole-in-the-wall frontage tucked away on busy George St in Brisbane's CBD.
Decked out with vibrant wall murals detailing iconic Brisbane landmarks, Alen's has a retro vibe, with its artwork and an old-school bicycle that hangs above the coffee bar. There's a few outdoor tables, as well as some larger tables on a mezzanine level.
The menu is all about the on-the-go snacks, featuring goodies such as sourdough toast, muffins, banana bread and croissants. Daily specials enable diners to snap up a coffee and breaky on the go for a reasonable price.
Coffee is their biggest seller, as Alen’s Espresso provides freshly brewed espresso, using their freshly roasted coffee. You can also purchase their daily grind by the gram, and if you do – you get a coffee on the house.
Nice to know – Alen’s Espresso is joined to Chapter Two Espresso – which has a large all-day breakfast menu.
