One of the many quaint little cafes dotted around Brisbane's CBD. In fact, immediately next door is a modern industrial looking steel-minimalist decor cafe.
They use a special Dibella blend which I think specially concocted for them, called, yeah surprise, Modena.
Personally I am not really a fan of Dibella coffee. I much prefer Merlo.
But the genius bald barista at Modena is made famous in many coffee forums. So I die die must check out!
When I arrive, a lady is working the coffee machine. No sign of said bald barista. Utterly disappointed. Still, already here might as well give it a try.
The milk is smooth and creamy. Nice crema colour on the milk giving the cappuccino a nice brown edge. Very well executed.
The coffee itself is good but not amazing.
I am no coffee connoissuer, I just know my like and dislike when I taste one.
Cafe Modena has this promo, a coffee and 3 mini home made muffins/a danish for A$5.50.
The muffins are average, just like those I bake at home.
Nice comfy place for a quick break.
