When entrepreneurial couple Antonia Kelly and Bradley Wakefield told me they were opening a cafe in Brisbane, I immediately got excited. The two of them have been involved in a swag of venues and initiatives in Brisbane over the years, including the well known Good Guide and Brunswick Social dumpling bar.
With PUK Espresso they have endeavoured to create a cafe that serves great coffee first and foremost, and they have far exceeded this goal. Located under a heritage listed fig tree on Main Street, Kangaroo Point, the pair dish out their signature blend of coffee made up of Australian Green Cauldron, Ethiopian, Indian and Costa Rican beans. It’s the sort of coffee you’ll end up judging everything else against. Apparently an attached art gallery isn’t too far off, either.
